I’m delighted to have a feature in the brilliant writing magazine Mslexia on copywriting for creative writers! It’s the first time I’ve had work in Mslexia, and the article was inspired by an article in a recent issue on the financial difficulties faced by writers. Since I live in a rural area and work freelance, I need to do different things to make a living, and have been surprised by how few creative writers also write for business. Combining commercial and personal creative work is perfectly normal among film-makers, so why not writers? So this article was written in a spirit of empowering women writers to know our worth and help us survive.
The new edition of my book, How to Launch a Freelance Copywriting Business, is being edited to bring it bang up to date with changes in this fast-moving field, and will be out again shortly. Drop me a line if you’d like to be updated: email@example.com, and I’ll send you a PDF on how to get started with business applications of your creative writing skills.
