Workshop description (may be different copy than what's on the site, but rest assured, it's the same workshop!):
Freelancers who make above-average livings often know something other writers don’t: that adding “commercial” writing to their mix offers the opportunity to make $60-$125+ an hour—giving them the time and space to pursue their “bliss” writing. In today’s downsized business world, companies of all sizes pay freelancers handsomely to handle many writing tasks. Join veteran commercial writer Peter Bowerman in a practical, info-packed session as you explore what commercial writing is, what qualities you need to succeed, how a journalism background can give you a big leg up, how to build a portfolio, where the work is, how to find it, what to charge, how good you have to be, and more. A good writing income is closer than you think.
