Make More Money Writing: Strategies for Finding New Funding Streams
As a writer, you may have received guidance on how to write, how to query, how to format manuscripts, and so on. However, in this presentation, Hope Clark, the editor of Funds for Writers will give you direction on funding streams. Instead of the mechanics, Hope will focus on how you can find markets, competitions, awards, grants, publishers, agents, and jobs for your writing abilities that you may never have considered.
You will learn how to:
- Study mastheads, research contacts at trade magazines, and use social media to your advantage
- Deal with rejection and understand Hope’s “keep 13 in play” approach
- Avoid writing scams by doing your homework
- Find contests in your writing genre
- Earn money through freelance sites.
- Skip low-paying markets and focus on effective sources of funds that further your career
Whether you are thirty-year veteran writer or a part-time wannabe, Hope will give you new ideas for finding more sources of money to help make writing a realistic and profitable career.
