Introductory Video If you didn't attend our introductory Webinar live, you'll start by watching our intro recording: Avoid the Top 7 Mistakes of New Freelance Writers. This training will give you a basic understanding of how the freelance-writing world operates: what you can skip and not waste time on, and what habits will help you succeed.

Each Week: Skills-building Homework with Individualized Feedback To rapidly build your freelance career and help you get hired, you'll get feedback on your homework posts on our class forums from Carol, Angie, and Evan.  

Recordings, Handouts and Transcripts Our materials are yours to download and re-read or watch at your leisure. We record and transcribe everything.

Homework Forum & Live Q&As Throughout class, you'll be able to ask questions and "talk shop" with your fellow writers on the 24/7 class forum. Carol will also hold a live weekly Q&A Web meeting in February, to ensure all your questions get answered. Finally, we'll have a bonus 'exit call' at the end of March, to answer all your pitching questions.  

And... March is "Pitch Month!"

Adapt our templates and create your pitch letters — then, get pro feedback from our team, so you know they're ready to go. You can submit as many pitches as you want for review! Finally, we'll have a bonus 'exit call' at the end of March, to answer all your pitching questions.

Raves for Our Courses

"By far the most valuable part of the course has been the coaching and mentoring. "

Kylie Saunder

“I just signed my 4th retainer client and numbers 5 and 6 are about to sign as well! I've done website content for three new websites, a 4-pay brochure, and Webinar content. I got some clients from networking, and some from just changing my job title on LinkedIn, from what I learned in Launchpad. I've increased what I'm charging and this point, my price for a blog post ranges from $125 - $400 and up. I have so much work, I'm scrambling to keep up. I'm projecting $40K in income this year. Thanks, Carol!"

Kylie Saunder Copywriter

"Got my first real client — and launched my career"

Daryl Watson

"After just a few weeks in the Den, I went to a networking event and got my very first REAL client – one who was willing to pay a professional rate. I’ve since used the Den’s resources to build an SEO-friendly website that’s brought in more work opportunities than I know what to do with! My cannabis writing took off, and now I have three regular clients, plus two more that give me project work.  

If you’re a freelance writer, and you want to take your business to the next level, join The Freelance Writers Den. It’s one of the best investments you can make. "

Daryl Watson The Cannabis Copywriter  

"Over $13,000 in assignments!" 

Tammy Farrell

"I learned how to speak to prospects with confidence about pricing and my writing. I've earned over $13,000 from two clients whose business I got after they saw my white paper sample from Steve's bootcamp."

What makes this program unique?

There are plenty of classes about how to be a freelance writer. Go grab a $12 self-study class on Udemy...and get exactly what you paid for. Writers spin in circles for years, trying to use resources like these — because your launch needs guidance, to go fast.

Let you in on a dirty freelance-industry secret: Many break-in courses online are taught by inexperienced writers (I've seen ones where the teacher freelanced FT for ONE month, then sold a course). Here, you get three seasoned freelance writers and teachers with a combined 47 years' experience in the freelance world. 

Also, no other course gives you this level of homework feedback, live Q&A time, answers, templates, and advice — the ingredients you need to succeed.  

Freelance Writers Den: The unique writing community for learning and support
Freelance Writers Den: A Writing Community

Finally, no other course comes with 2 months of full access to everything in our Freelance Writers Den community — you get 300+ hours of additional learning opportunities, our Junk-Free Job Board, 24/7 forums, support from 1,100+ members, and more, to supplement your learning. All for the price of this single course. 

More course benefits:  

  • Save a ton of time. No more trial and error! 
  • Launch faster, earn more. Be one of the elite set of new freelance writers who earns well their first year!
  • Stop chasing low-paid 'opportunities' on content mills and bid sites, and learn where the $$ is. 
  • Gain insight into where you fit, where good pay can be found, where clients are eager for your help.
  • Get templates. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel — we've know what works, and will hand it to you.
  • Keep it simple. We've boiled this down to just 4 basic steps. Niche, get online, get referrals, pitch. Get hired!
