Love to Write, But Hate to Starve?
Exploring the Lucrative Field of “Commercial” Freelancing
What if you could make $60-$100+ an hour writing, and give yourself the time and space to pursue your “passion writing”? In today’s downsized business world, companies of all sizes pay freelancers such rates to handle many of their writing tasks. Join Peter Bowerman, veteran “commercial” writer (with clients such as BellSouth, IBM, UPS, Mercedes-Benz, American Express and Coca-Cola), and author of the multiple-award-winning “Well-Fed Writer" titles on the subject, as you learn what commercial writing is, why the field makes sense now, how to build a portfolio, where the work is, what to charge, how good you have to be, and more. A GOOD writing income is closer than you think!
