Ready to Make Money in 2018?
Believe it or not, not all writers are broke, ramen-eating, starving artists. Okay, don't get me wrong, we've eaten our share of ramen, but we've also learned that it’s possible to make good money as a writer. If you want to learn how to make money writing, take it from two professional writers who have been in the business for nearly a DECADE. We've been through it all: pitching editors and never hearing from them, writing "opportunities" that are actually just unpaid gigs, applying for full-time writing jobs and competing with a zillion other writers, ugh. The list goes on.
We are Kristin Wong (the New York Times, New York magazine) and Alex Webb (National Geographic, the Financial Times) and we built this course to teach beginner writers how to get their first paid gigs and teach experienced writers how to get paid even more for gigs. Imagine being able to:
✔️ Earn $1,000 or more for a single article
✔️ Craft epic pitches that publications can’t turn down
✔️ Write content that's so good, editors and book publishers come to YOU
Those are just a few of the things Kristin and Alex have accomplished with their freelance writing, and in this course, they break down everything they've learned about how to make money writing.
What You'll Get
What You'll Learn
It's time to stop believing you have to be broke to do what you love.

A Note From Kristin + Alex
Psst! It's us. Kristin and Alex. We met in 2013 when both our writing careers were just beginning.
Over the years, we've shared our experiences in the freelance writing business: how we find clients, how we negotiate, and how we make a living with our writing. We had so much experience to share, we wanted to spread the knowledge. There's no blueprint for how to make money writing, but between the two of us, we've managed to:
✔️ Earn up to $1,600 for a single article
✔️ Earn between $72-$100k a year from freelance writing
✔️ Score lucrative, 5-figure deals with major publishers
✔️ Write for some of the biggest publications
We created this course to share everything we've learned. We’re not the types who blindly promise that what works for us will work for everyone, but we certainly have plenty of insight on how to make money writing.
Come Write With Us is everything we've learned about writing professionally, all in one place. Enroll and get all the tools, tricks, and info you need to go from "wannabe writer" to "gonnabe writer." Let's figure out what it takes to launch your professional writing career.
