SPAWN Member Teleseminar – “The Well-Fed Writer: Breaking into the Lucrative Field of “Commercial” Freelancing” with Peter Bowerman.
Want to turn your love of writing into a full-time living, earning $60, $75, $100 an hour and more? It’s closer than you think in the lucrative arena of “commercial” freelancing. In the course of communicating with its customers and employees, an average corporation generates an enormous volume of writing. Yet, in today’s downsized business world, more and more companies or all sizes rely on well-paid freelancers (i.e. $50-125+ an hour) to handle their writing needs.
