Want to be the person who wins a full scholarship to the next session of Freelance Writer Bootcamp? → Link to application in bio.
In Bootcamp, you’ll learn how to write pitches that sell, break into your dream publications, and get paid well to cover stories that matter to you.
Bootcampers have pitched their way into local newspapers, national magazines, and international websites, including the Guardian, the New York Times, Shape.com, Parents.com, NationalGeographic.com, Al Jazeera, Sawubona (South African Airways' inflight), and many others.
Bootcamp alum say: "My success rate has increased pretty dramatically. I’m on track for my best year ever. I’ve doubled the number of stories that I’ve placed, and the type of publications I’m writing for is of a higher caliber.” -- Carol Patterson “Her short course on crafting and tracking pitches helped me to publish in The Guardian and two-new-to-me national magazines. Plus, her feedback on drafts is extremely helpful.” -- Morgan Trimble
The scholarship winner will get FULL access to everything in Bootcamp (including lifetime access to all videos and worksheets, live group workshops with feedback on your pitches in progress, and a private Facebook group). PLUS as a super special bonus for the scholarship winner, a series of THREE private coaching calls.
Step-by-step, you’ll discover how to find the best publications for you, what to include in a query that editors can’t say no to, and how to parlay a single assignment into an ongoing gig. I’ll be by your side supporting you the whole way, as will a bunch of fellow freelance writers from around the world.
Bootcamp isn't a silver bullet. You still have to do the work. In Bootcamp I’ll share with you everything I’ve learned about skills, strategies, and mindset from years of freelancing for CNN, the New York Times, Marie Claire, Dwell, Ebony .com, and many others.
Regular Bootcamp registration will open in September. Scholarship applications close next Friday, 24 August.
