CHEAP & GOOD ADVICE FOR WRITERS

I get a couple of emails a week asking, “How do I become a freelance writer?” I reply to these emails as best as I can, but I can’t always find the time to answer follow up questions.

CHEAP & GOOD ADVICE FOR WRITERS is an experimental effort to teach practical freelancing skills to a lot of curious people at once. Each class happens at a scheduled times in a live chatroom-type setting and covers one foundational question about freelancing .

My goal here is to offer valuable advice in a way that is financially sustainable for both of us. If you want to take a class but can’t afford it, please email me at jamiekeiles (at) gmail (dot) com and we can work something out.
