Do editors find you irresistible?
Enroll for the next session of Freelance Writer Bootcamp here: www.freelancewriterbootcamp.com
Many people are called to the writing life, and many try to freelance.
But without a strategy in place, it can quickly become overwhelming. Where do writers get their best ideas? Where are the good markets? What are the formats used for queries and what info should be there in the first place? What’s a fair rate? How do you become an editor’s go-to freelancer? How do you keep track of everything? How do you handle mindset issues and imposter sydrome?
After six weeks, you’ll walk away knowing how to:
- Put together story ideas that stand out and get assigned at top rates
- Become the go-to writer for an editor who has lots of stories to assign
- Transform your minor obsessions and casual conversations into material that the world will read
- Become irresistible to editors
- Start breaking into more and more prestigious publications (hello, sweet bylines!)
- Generate nonstop ideas and know exactly where to pitch them
… And get on the road straight to a time-flexible, location independent, passion-fueled, and lifelong (if you choose) dream career.
Even if you didn’t go to journalism school, don’t know the “right” people, or are not exactly sure what you want to write about yet.
My students have sold queries to local newspapers, national magazines, and international websites (check out a few testimonials here.). They pitch every possible topic, including health, travel, and religion.
Once you register, you get a unique username and password, which will give you access to the bootcamp. All modules are digital and will be rolled out over six weeks.
The modules include recorded videos, worksheets, cheatsheets, and other resources, including copies of real pitches that sold, resources for finding editors, and sample scripts that you can use when negotiating. You will have lifetime access to the materials, including updates.
A weekly live call is a chance to clarify how the week’s modules apply to your pitches. If you can’t make it live, email your questions ahead of time and listen in to the recording later.
A private Facebook Group offers additional support from myself and your fellow Bootcampers. This private community is a safe place to ask questions, put isolation at bay, and build your peer network.
All the details are on the registration page. See you in bootcamp!
