Back in 2018, I was already earning a steady income from my blog but I decided to branch out and try and get into freelance journalism.
I knew it was fiercely competitive: I didn’t have a qualification, I didn’t live in London and hadn’t done any internships other than work experience at my local paper when I was 16. I didn’t know anyone in the industry.
Yet, still I’ve managed to make a living from it. And in those two years, I have since written for: The Telegraph, Metro Online, Refinery 29, Happiful Magazine, Glamour Magazine, Culture Trip, Top Sante magazine, Mother and Baby to name just a few.
I’m always asked how to get into freelance writing and always say the same thing: you just need a really good idea.
But in theory, it is actually bit more complicated. You need a really good idea AND the know-how of how to pitch, who to pitch to, and when to pitch. And that’s what this ebook will do. It’s everything I’ve learnt over my years of freelance writing-in one low-cost ebook.
