Are you interested in freelance copywriting jobs?

Want to know how to get work and how much to charge for it?

Modern marketing and advertising is driven by the written word, and although the demand for quality content and copy writing has increased, the supply of skilled writers hasn't. Discover what opportunities are available to writers at marketing and publicity agencies, how to secure gigs, and how to act like a seasoned professional. Possible jobs might include blog posts and website copy, white papers, direct mail pieces, business articles, emails and newsletters, recruiting and sales brochures, and flyers. The range of companies needing copywriting can run from major corporations, governmental organizations, and small businesses.
In this class participants will learn what types of agencies are hiring, who's in charge of contracting writers and how to contact them, the types of projects writers work on, how to price services, industry lingo, and other best practices.


  • You're interested in picking up freelance marketing and publicity copywriting jobs.
  • You want clear, direct answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions about freelance copywriting.
