Delray Beach, Florida (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI), announced today the release of a special presentation that is a must-see for those interested in learning how to become a freelance writer.
For the unemployed, underemployed, or simply those looking for a new career in which they can indulge in their love of writing, this step-by-step guide profiles 12 little-known but well-paid writing sectors and niches.
“The idea of the writer as a ‘starving artist’ couldn’t be more wrong these days. But most people who dream of making their living from their writing have no idea of the possibilities that exist today,” says American Writers & Artists Inc. Executive Director Katie Yeakle. “At AWAI our goal is to expose as many potential freelance writers as possible to the hottest writing opportunities in the industry.”
Direct-response, a type of advertising writing, is one of the most lucrative opportunities included in the presentation. Freelance writers in this niche are some the highest-paid. And those who master this writing style find it’s easy to move into other niches, including writing ads and sales copy for the Internet, which is also featured in the presentation.
Other ways to make a living as a writer include helping businesses sell products and services to other businesses – a sector known as B2B copywriting. There’s also grant writing, in which freelance writers help organizations get funding for charitable work, and travel writing, the perfect way to fund trips around the world.
The bottom-line is that writing can be the basis of a very lucrative full-time or part-time career, and there’s never been a better time to get involved in this industry.
