Freelance Writing Bootcamp
What you'll learn
- How to give your freelance writing career a boost
- Some ability to write, downloaded workbook and pen or pencil
If you're thinking of becoming a freelance writer, or need a boost to your existing freelance writing career, then this bootcamp is for you.
21 creative exercises which you can do over a three week period, or different timescale as your schedule requires, will give you inspiration for research, positioning and direction. You're welcome to send your exercises over to me for 1-2-1 feedback and encouragement, and if you're flagging, or unclear about something, then I will help.
This bootcamp is developed from coaching thousands of freelance writers, both online and in live workshops. It starts with self-assessment and goal setting, moves into your niche, vision and reality checking, helps you create a portfolio, and then looks at copywriting and seo skills, and social media marketing.
The course is created from an understanding that many freelance writers find marketing themselves a challenge, and that creative approaches to marketing can make it more appropriate to what you offer, easier to do and - crucially - more fun.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner freelance writers, and freelance writers who need a boost
You can look forward to lots of interactivity, practical outputs and fun from my writing courses, as I love learning through doing and giving you 1-2-1 feedback. You will learn how to be a better writer, a more versatile writer and a business savvy writer.
Hello, I'm Philippa, writer and business psychologist, with 30 years experience of freelance writing - author of 12 books, newspaper columnist, TV and radio scriptwriter and web editor.
The Times kindly serialised my non-fiction bestseller 'Irresistibility' while a self-published novel got made into a double Bafta winning TV film.
You could say that I'm fixated by how we use words with each other, which means I've coached Olympic Head Coaches, Oscar Winners, Prime and Cabinet Ministers in the UK and company directors at GE, NBC, Merck, BBC, and Universal Pictures. Now I work as web editor for FYI Network, and deliver workshops for universities and the UK National Union of Journalists.
But as a Brit who really doesn't like boasting I'd prefer to talk about you than me.
You'll like my courses, then, if you think that writing is much more important than many people realise, that a successful writer of today needs to have multimedia and marketing skills, and that one of most exciting feelings in the world is to express an idea cogently and have others say 'You truly made me think here' or 'You moved me here'.
Lovely to meet you, fellow writer, and I hope we chat further...
