Writing for Love and Money: How to Build a Business Model for Your Writing Career

Money is often a taboo subject for writers, but if you want your writing to be a long-term, sustainable activity—or a living wage—then it's necessary to consider the business model that will support your art. Whether you choose to have a day job, or focus on how to market and sell your work for top dollar, we'll discuss how to be clear-eyed and strategic about developing revenue streams and a business model best suited to your personality, your writing, and your career expectations.
