Description

How to Confidently Start and Run a Freelance Writing Business is an in-person, weekend-long workshop offered by The Freelance Writing School.

What's the Workshop all About?

You'll make your way to Camp Bretondean on Friday evening and join us for registration at 5:30 p.m. Once everyone is settled, we'll sit down to a group dinner and start planning your dream freelance writing business right away!

Over the next two days, you'll identify what kind of freelance writing business you want to build, and you'll work through the roadblocks and barriers that could get in your way of success. We'll split our time between learning the essential business building strategies necessary to succeed and focused writing sessions. Did we mention there's a campfire session and a planned hike to round out the weekend? In our "S'mores and Dreaming Big" session, we'll talk candidly about what you want and how you can create the business of your dreams.

All the while, you'll be building valuable connections with a community of freelance writers right here in Cape Breton and beyond. Being a freelancer can be lonely, so we want to make sure you never feel like you are by yourself, regardless of whether you work on the couch in your underwear or you rent a space to run your business out of during the week.

On Sunday, you'll leave with action items to start working on Monday morning if that is your goal. This intensive and action-based, in-person workshop will provide you with everything you need to start and run a freelance writing business so register today - there are only 19 spots available!

This isn't your typical stuffy corporate workshop - we are going to have loads of fun and build real businesses while we are at it! Jeans and t-shirts are welcome at this workshop. Leave your power suits at home.

Come with an idea on Friday and leave with a business on Sunday - how cool is that?!

- cost of the workshop including all sessions, workbook, and support materials plus some swag ;)

- all accommodations at Camp Bretondean for Friday and Saturday night

- cost of food including dinner Friday night, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday
