Yesterday, we talked about the site http://www.MasterClass.com which allows you to learn from the likes of Shondra Rhimes and R.L. Stine, and others. The classes run the gamut of topics such as writing for television to writing for young audiences to writing essays to writing poetry. Check it out here.
In today’s #bloglikecrazy post, I am continuing my look at ways to DIY your writing-intensive to further your writing goals.
Let’s talk about jumpstarting your freelance writing career. Did you know that you can break into freelance writing even if you don’t have a journalism degree or experience? Yes. It can be done with the right people in your corner – encouraging you, lighting the path, and giving you the tools to succeed.
That’s what Javacia Harris Bowser of See Jane Write provides.
In the writing community she has created, Javacia, a full-time freelance writer encourages her fellow ‘Janes’ to go after what they want. She wants us all to be goal-diggers. Each week she celebrates your wins within the community and cheers you on each month as you set monthly goals and join in on writing sessions and peer critiques.
Javacia also works to light the path for fellow writers. She offers sessions that help you learn how to tell your story, find a home for your writing, and urges you to “shoot your shot” by providing leads on magazines and websites looking for writers. She even provides individual and group coaching sessions.
In addition to encouraging you and lighting a path, Javacia is always looking for ways to give you the tools to succeed. And she has done this again with her updated e-course “See Jane Freelance.”
Whether you’re looking to earn extra income for your family or start a new career, freelancing can help you write your way to your dreams.
And Javacia can attest to this. She is living proof that freelancing can give you the life you want. In a year of uncertainty, she is killing the freelancing game as a full-time freelancer after quitting her day job as an English teacher last year. And with Javacia’s help, I’ve made some extra income this year as I got clear on my desire to be a freelance writer.
“See Jane Freelance” can provide you with the clarity you need too.
