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!
It took me years to work out how to support myself as a professional writer and now I’ve condensed that knowledge into a book so you can take a shorter route!
