Are you passionate about writing and want to turn it into a career? Join writer and editor Lauren Bevilacqua to explore the intricacies of freelance writing.

Is it possible to do something you love – writing – and get paid for it? Freelance writing is one of the most popular career choices for writers who want to turn their passion into a profitable business. However, it can be challenging to navigate the world of freelance writing, especially if you're just starting out.

In this three-hour workshop, participants will explore ways to build a writing-based business, generate and assess ideas, and identify steps for building a professional identity as a writer. We'll explore different types of writing services, explore who hires writers, and discuss how to write for money without sacrificing your love of writing.

Whether you're considering writing as a full-time gig or just as a side hustle, this workshop is perfect for writers looking to start or expand their own writing business. Don't miss out on this opportunity to turn your passion into a profitable career!

Participants will gain:

  • Ideas and tools to help work out what you could get paid to write
  • Tips for building a professional identity as a writer
  • Strategies for sourcing writing work
  • Practical insights on creating a sustainable writing business
  • Ways to keep writing fun (even when it’s work)
