I’ve done everything from copywriting about forklift trucks and Christmas trees to writing national magazine features about long-distance sailing and having a travel memoir published internationally.
But when I graduated from my Creative Writing degree in 2010, I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know how to make money as a writer, I hadn’t even heard of copywriting!
