No two paths to writing success are the same. That’s the beauty of a freelance writing career—you design it to fit in with the life you have or want; you’ll never have to follow the footsteps of someone else.

That said, the most successful writers we know — and those who make the highest annual incomes — are members of professional writing communities, such as the Barefoot Writer Club. Connecting with other writers for support, advice, news on writing trends, and accountability is vital for building your writing career.

Most successful, well-paid writers also have a background in persuasive writing. Nearly all the writers we’ve hired in the past completed AWAI’s Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting, which is the premiere training program for anyone looking to build a profitable career from marketing communications.
