I am already a writer with a website and a few clips, but already I have taken away some ideas and actions that I can use to develop myself as a freelance writer. Some of the resources provided are fantastic and I have been able to use them for my own website and to begin to pitch to clients. Thank you for your excellent course. It has been most helpful!

I think that has been the most helpful freelance writing course I've taken. The material is clear and concise. The worksheets are incredibly helpful as was your lecture on how much freelance writers should charge, especially once they've developed a proper client base.

I’m Kirsty Stuart. I quit my job back in 2012 and learned how to make a full-time living writing online.

Since 2012, I’ve travelled the world, written for international publications, and founded a small business helping other writers.

There are different ways to make money writing online, but I wanted to make a full-time living from it, and I soon discovered that freelance writing for clients was the best way to do that. 

I had to learn quickly – I had bills to pay, and I’m guessing you do too. That’s why I’ve designed this course to be as accessible and comprehensive as it can be. 

You really can make good money writing online and live life on your terms. I’m going to show you how.

You’re about to embark on some highly practical training that means you’ll soon be able to charge a premium rate for your writing and earn a full-time living from it. 

Let’s do this.
