Here are my favorite freelance writer resources. These are products and services that I have used and loved. Many of these resources are totally free, others cost money, and some of the links are affiliate links. All of these resources have helped me.
Most of these sites were started by founders who are not only extremely successful in the fields they write about, they are also friendly, human, helpful and approachable. These people are willing to reach out and help others. In many cases, they provide step-by-step instructions for doing exactly what they have done to become successful. I have found that the textbook is not the most valuable thing to me – it’s the teacher. Pay attention to what these teachers say and watch your career improve very quickly because of it.
