Do you want to get paid for writing?
Almost every new writer faces this question at some point.
Unless writing is a hobby, it’s natural to wonder if you can make money from writing. One of the quickest ways you can make a living from writing is to become a freelance writer.
In this post, I explain what freelancing is and I provide practical tips for those who want to become a freelance writer today. I’ve also got details of an exciting new book for freelance writers at the end of this post.
What is a Freelance Writer?
A freelance writer is someone who writes blog posts, non-fiction articles and web copy for magazines, publications, companies and other organisations.
Unlike a journalist employed by a newspaper, freelance writers are self-employed, and they typically write for a number of different clients or publications at one time.
Freelance writers can work full-time or part-time at home or in an office. Some freelance writers have a contract with several different clients while others work on a commission basis.
