Young Writers Workshop: $1k in 6 Weeks

October 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Does your student dream of making a living as a writer?
If the answer is “yes,” you don’t want them to miss this!
Making a living as a writer is doable, but it’s extremely difficult–especially in the beginning. Fortunately, there is a start-up secret many people overlook:
An author’s income does not have to rely on book sales alone.
On Saturday, October 7th 2022 (1-2:30 pm ET), I’m giving a virtual talk to homeschool students grades 6-12 about how to supplement their income as an author using writing-adjecent skills. Students will get an overview of freelance positions such as editing, audiobook narration, book cover design, and virtual assisting.
We’ll talk about what skills you need to do the job, what equipment is required, and how much you can expect to earn.
This information is based on my own experiences being a VA (virtual assistant), where I earned more than $1k in just six weeks by applying skills I already had. I also interviewed professional freelancers who work in areas I do not (such as audiobook narration).
This class is part of LEAH’s member education. You don’t need to be a member or a New York resident to attend, but there is a $10 fee for non-members.
