Writing to Sell
Does the urge to see your byline in print below the titles of your personal essays tempt you to submit your work for publication?
Or, perhaps you have some writing credits but would like to earn more for your efforts.
Two steps will help you reach published status, and earn more from your writing. Step one is to learn the basics of the writing business. Step two is to plan your selling strategy. Fortunately, you can take both steps at the same time. The Writing to Sell course shows you how.
