Build Your Portfolio – And Launch Your Freelance Writing Career

Ian Chandler, your course instructor, knows what it’s like to start without a portfolio or any previous experience. When Ian started, he was a college student with no mentor and no extra support from experienced freelancers.

He had the passion and the drive to succeed, and he did it the hard way: by trial and error.

Ian encountered the same issues many writers face when getting started. He didn’t have a portfolio or previous experience. He didn’t know how to find clients willing to pay him.

After several false starts, Ian found success by focusing on freelance blogging. Over time, he developed a formula for successfully getting paid by existing blogs.

Not only did he quickly build a solid portfolio, he learned how to develop long-term relationships with editors, eventually becoming a blog editor himself.

This course is based on Ian’s real-world experience launching his freelance writing career. It quickly addresses the many questions new freelance writers face at the beginning of their careers.

By the end of this course, you’ll know how to get your first publication, become a regular contributor to successful blogs, and establish a long-term career as a freelance writer. Plus, you’ll even get hep finding blogs that suit your niche and your writing style.

We Love It When Our Students Succeed

“After taking Ian’s class, the money I was able to earn from my writing allowed me to finally visit my family in Brazil (it had been 5 years since I had last been there). The material in Ian’s course is easy to understand and actionable, and you will come out of this course feeling (and acting) like a professional writer who gets paid for your words.”
