Today is the launch of the Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing!
Fresh off the launch of last month’s Law & Order guide, I’m really excited to roll out another brand-new resource.
In yesterday’s post (not sent by email), I encouraged readers to make 2014 a year of writing. I got a bit sidetracked from my writing practice last year, and I want to make sure I make more time for it this year.
Conveniently, my practice is returning just as our crack team of Unconventional Guides superstars have completed another project… and this one is great!
Get Paid to Write: What It’s All About
Whether you’re just getting started or ready to take over the written world as in an independent writing career, this comprehensive toolkit is the get-it-done guide you’ve been waiting for.
Each version includes FREE updates for life and will be delivered to your inbox immediately along with a link to the accompanying resources. The goal is: Buy today, read tonight, write tomorrow.
In support of aspiring writers on a budget, we’ve decided to launch this guide with super-low pricing—you can get started for as little as $39.
What You’ll Learn
This brand new guide is designed specifically to help aspiring writers sell their work, particularly to magazines, newspapers, and digital outlets. Among other things, you’ll learn:
- Simple steps to getting started if you’re new to the word-wrangling business
- Traditional methods for pitching editors as well as using Twitter to build your client portfolio
- What to charge for your work, how to negotiate projects, and when it’s time to raise your rates
- Strategies for growing your business and landing the big bylines
- Practical tactics for handling clients and editors
- Secrets that 10 successful freelancers use to land their dream gigs

This guide was written by Amber Adrian, a ten-year veteran freelancer from California. Amber knows all about pitching well, working with editors, and otherwise crafting a sustainable career in the world of writing.
