Make a Real Living as a Freelance Writer
"This one-of-a-kind book for freelance
writers is all you’ll ever need to kick off your writing career,
keep it on track, and nurture it into a lucrative business."
"Unlike other writing books, she doesn't just give pat
answers and simple guidelines. Ms. Glatzer takes great care to explain in detail what to do. For instance, in her section on writing excellent query letters, she gives sample winning query letters and things not to say to an editor."
"While many people can write, selling
your writing is something not often taught in college or online
courses. Ms. Glatzer wrote this book to fill that information void
and de-mystifies the process."
"I have been writing and publishing
for 31 years. I teach freelance writing courses, but I learned so
much in this book."
"Glatzer takes you through the entire freelancing process from ideas to markets to queries and making the sale. In the seventeen chapters, she shares her considerable experience on interviewing, sales, getting paid and becoming a favorite writer for editors."
"Freelancers, whether writing books or
articles, will find this well-crafted, practical book a highly useful tool-- one
of the best we've seen."

serious about entering into this business. I consider Make a Real
Living as a Freelance Writer to be an excellent tool and a most
"Each chapter is a virtual
trampoline for bouncing ideas around. Jenna starts with practical
advice but the creative mind will soon have a list of new schemes
for promotion, fresh angles for stories, and firm resolutions for
improving the business and the life of writing."

"If you still can't think of a thing to
write after reading this book, perhaps you should consider a career
other than writing."

this reviewer found it hard to stay focused on the job of reading

endowment to the writing world. May she sell a million copies."

Writer’s Block was surprisingly entertaining from beginning to

outwrites other books on the topic..."

your writing flowing."

right in the face and getting rid of it."

and innovative approach to writing’s oldest dilemma."
