We’ll show you how we went from writing for free, to getting assignments and contracts. Find out what you need to know to succeed as a freelance writer in the faith-based market.
We’ll break the workshop up into three sections – Research, Writing & Pitching, and Business. During the workshop, participants will work through the early planning stages of writing an article and a query letter, and learn how those tools will get you publishing credits. We’ve asked over a dozen of the editors in the Canadian faith-based market we’ve worked with, to tell us what they’re looking for from a freelancer. We’ll share their answers!
Some of the items we plan to cover include:
- Freelance terms
- How to recognize a great story
- Writers guidelines and using sample copies
- Finding a publication
- Understanding rejections
- The power of free and networking
- Freelancing is a business – be professional
- Query Letters
- What editors want
- Writing hooks and leads
- Practise writing your own hook and lead
