New call-to-action

What we write about:

To get a sense for the type of work we publish, read our site!

As you can see, our posts cover all areas of the writing life, including: freelancing, blogging, publishing, the craft of writing and marketing.

Here are some topics we’d love to publish more about:

  • How to earn money writing — our best posts include the author’s experience and advice or feature another writer who has been successful
  • Advanced tips for freelance writers, including strategies for earning a living as a freelancer
  • Ideas for running and growing your own blog — unique ideas we haven’t heard before are best
  • List posts a la “34 Travel Magazines and Websites That Pay Freelance Writers” and 15 of the Best YouTube Channels for Writers”
  • Advice from people who work in the writing world: editors, literary agents, publishers, illustrators, etc. If that’s you, we’d love to hear what you have to say!
  • Tips and tricks for traditional book publishing and self-publishing
  • Detailed reviews of courses and products that help writers reach their goals
  • Stories of writers who have seen success… a la “This Writer Used X to Earn X This Year”
