Course Description

Do you want to earn a living as a freelance writer, earning money from home while doing something you actually love to do?

This course will teach you exactly how I built a freelance writing career online from absolute scratch and have been making my living from it ever since, even quitting my day job back in 2012.

I travel the world with my laptop, making money as I go, or sit at home in front of my computer and work to my own schedule. No horrible commute, no office politics, and no boss. Best of all, I'm getting paid to do something I love to do - WRITE!

If I can do it - you can too. This course will teach you exactly how, with over-my-shoulder access to how I did it, plus pitching templates and all the tricks of the trade to ensure you rise above the competition.

  2. You want more time, money and freedom to spend as you please
  3. You want a new career working from anywhere but don't know where to start
  4. You're sick of spending all your time earning a pittance writing for content mills

Instructor Biography

Kirsty Stuart, Freelance Writer & Writing Coach

In the summer of 2012 I quit my ordinary day job in central London and set about carving out a career as a freelance writer online.

Since then, I've travelled all over the world with my laptop, writing for internaional travel giants such as Flight Centre, Viator, and Tripadvisor. I quickly learned how to pitch to clients, market my freelance business, and earn a full-time living from writing online.

I also started my own blog charting my success in the industry, teaching other potential writers how to join the realms of the highest earning freelance writers in the world of online content.

Now I run my website, teach on Udemy, while still doing what I love best – writing.

If I can do it, so can you. My Udemy courses will teach you exactly how – step-by-step and with continuous support all the way.
