Working Writers: Is Your Freelance Career Stuck in Low Gear?
Maybe you’re a fairly new freelance writer earning $20,000 — but really need to earn $40,000. Or you’re an experienced writer still struggling to attain the $80,000 or $100,000+ yearly income you know you deserve.
It’s like there’s a turnoff you missed somewhere, on the highway to freelance success. Hey — every top-earning writer once was right where you are now.
There's a ton of opportunity out there — yes, even during Covid! But hiring a coach to steer you the right direction costs a fortune (usually $3,000-$10,000 and up).
If that's out of your league, good news: Now, coach Carol Tice has created an affordable, 'self-study' version of her proven program for doubling your income (or more!).
Learn the Simple Steps That Take Writers From Broke to Six Figures!
Introducing the self-study version of Carol's proven Freelance Writers Den 2X Income Accelerator program. After seeing too many writers struggle alone, feeling desperate and confused about how to create a solid writing income, Carol created a more accessible Den 2X just for you. What's inside?
6 Modules of idea-packed, proven Den 2X program materials - goodbye, trial-and-error! The exact program writers have been using to reliably double their income since 2015. ($1000 value)

24 NEW coaching videos with Carol's insider tips and encouragement for each step (all the secrets she's shared in live-class masterminds are here!)
6 months of regular Freelance Writers Den membership included! ($240 value) Easily access the Den resources we reference in the 2X program, to stay on track.
Lifetime materials access — revisit as needed.
NEW!Immediate access to the high-earning Den 2X GRADS Group (a $300 value) - Students support each other in an exclusive class thread in the Grads' Slack chat. Watch and learn from all the super-successful 2X students from past classes!

Work through your 2X materials at your own pace — we know, you're busy!
If you're struggling, we get it. Few freelance writers level-up their income all alone.
Times are hard, and writing jobs aren't falling from the trees, like they did in, say, 2019. Also, this is a lonely career that's hard to excel at, if you're working all alone. Who can make themselves do serious marketing? In our experience: nobody.
If you need a reliable, lucrative income from writing, now's the time to join a proven, step-by-step program and support community where you learn to create a sustainable, lucrative writing business that thrives, no matter what.

“I’ve seen a sharp increase in income and incoming leads, since going through the Den 2X program–and that’s just from updating my website, portfolios, and my LinkedIn. The clients I've gained are recurring clients, which has helped me jump to almost $100k in my first year of freelancing full time! Thanks, Carol.” —Dawn Killough
Doubled My Income Within the First Year
“I doubled my income within the first year of completing 2X and I’ve only been increasing my income since then. Also, I cannot emphasize just how valuable it is to be part of the graduate Slack group. This is a daily resource for having somewhere to vent, share success stories, find resources, ask for advice on pricing, and more. Den 2X is the best thing you can do with your money if you’re a freelance writer.” —Chanoa Tarle
Why do most writers earn peanuts?

A road-tested program...
With 5+ years of experience running Den 2X, this is now a highly focused, 6-month program. In this self-study version, you'll move through the Den 2X Road Map at your own pace, identifying and overcoming the obstacles that have kept you from achieving your income goals.
Meet your Den 2X coaches
Hi — I’m Carol Tice, a six-figure freelance writer and author of the award-winning Make a Living Writing blog. I’m proud of the 7-year track record I’ve built coaching other writers on how to earn more.
I’ve been a freelance writer myself for nearly 20 years (still working!), and have earned a full-time living from writing since 1995. I cracked six figures in 2011. My freelance clients have included Deloitte, Costco, American Express, Delta Sky, Alaska Beyond, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Seattle Magazine, and many more.
Hello! I’m Angie, the Moderator-in-Chief for the Freelance Writers Den and a freelancer for the past decade. I worked my way up from content mills, starting out in the bad old days of Demand Studios (when they still called it that).
After graduating Den 2X myself, I now make a comfortable living writing case studies and white papers for clients who don’t make me want to pull my hair out. I also work alongside Carol to help writers find their way to bigger, better clients.
What 2X grads say...
“My goal coming into 2X was to shift from querying editors to attracting business clients, because it would pay more and be less of a crapshoot. After taking the Den 2X self-study course, I’m making enough that I’ve already cut back on magazine pitches by one-third! I used the Den 2X materials to analyze my current business and the possibilities for new clients in my health-tech niche.
“The information on writing letters of introduction targeting businesses was huge. And I started sending LOIs to businesses that looked promising. I fixed up my LinkedIn and tinkered a bit with my pretty rudimentary web presence. By early summer, I'd picked up a couple of good retainer clients. And by mid-summer, I had three and had raised my prices a bit with the first two. Together, they provide a solid base income, and doing better-paid work leaves me extra hours so I can send journalistic queries that interest me. That was my goal, and by tapping into the Den resources, I got it ... in just a few months. So I’m quite happy!”—Marcia Clemmitt
On My Way to 2Xing My Income
"I was earning $2,500 per month consistently before I joined Den 2X, knowing this would be my step up. The tailored program helped me separate the wheat from the chaff of online advice you see all over the Internet... I was able to look at my client analysis and devise a marketing plan for myself. Now, the website I developed as part of Den2X brings me at least 7 leads a week. Plus 5 leads a week off my LinkedIn profile, which Den2X helped me improve. I recently secured two $1,100 per month clients off LinkedIn and am on my way to 2xing my income by the end of the program. Plus, Den2X has given me a beautiful mindset and some great pals. I am so excited about the fact that I can consistently use the training to 2X my income EVERY YEAR. Thank you Carol for making me believe it was possible to achieve financial freedom while having freedom of lifestyle.” —Divya Agrawal

If you're thinking, 'Could I just hire Carol for individual coaching instead?' the answer is no. And here's why: in nearly a decade mentoring writers, Carol found 1-on-1 coaching alone doesn't create career transformation. She's tried it, but didn't like the lack of reliable results. Meanwhile, many 'gurus' charge thousands for just a few hours' time.
With 1-on-1 alone, your mentor is at a different career stage than you are. Their earnings seem unachievable. And it’s lonely, trying to ramp your business all by yourself.
That’s why Freelance Writers Den 2X Income Accelerator combines peer-group and buddy support with advanced training, with the option to add 1-on-1 coaching time.
This is the proven Den 2X formula for skyrocketing your writing income. And at a cost of just $699, it's an insane value, considering how much more you'll earn in the years to come, thanks to your 2X training.
Is Den 2X right for you?
Freelance Writers Den 2X income Accelerator is for motivated, working freelance writers who're ready to take action to grow their writing income.
If you're frozen in fear, the Den 2X materials won't help you. With this self-study version, you need to be a self-starter. This is an active program, where you'll build and execute on a concrete growth plan.
You should have at least one full year of freelance experience, and have had at least a handful of clients. There needs to be existing freelance income for us to work on doubling it, right?
Why do we exclude brand-new freelance writers from Den 2X? The steps we prescribe in 2X won’t be relevant or helpful if you have yet to find your first client. Recommend newbies join Freelance Writers Den as a basic member instead — our archive full of get-started trainings will get you launched.
I just closed February's accounts, and I grossed a shade under $7,200.
"Last Thursday, I just closed February’s accounts, and I grossed a shade under $7,200. I smashed my previous record, back in September, by $1,000.” —Charles
Ready to double your income?
