Okay, so you’ve either completed one of our freelance writing courses at the Australian Writers’ Centre or you have solid feature writing skills. And now you’re keen to get started as a freelance writer – but you’re not sure about the nuts and bolts of it all.
In fact, it’s freaking you out a little. Okay, it’s freaking you out a LOT. Things like creating an invoice, whether you should charge GST or simply managing the business side of things. A little help please?
It’s your lucky day. This online course leads you step by step into what you need to know to set yourself up for freelance success.
It’s all about nailing the basics to getting started as a freelancer. (So, if you’re already freelancing and invoicing, this is not the course for you.)
All those questions that keep filling up your day and stop you from focussing on writing will be answered. Invoices, charging GST, communication tips, useful tools and ideas on how to be more productive.
“I really enjoyed everything. I just loved it! I was very grateful for the amount of useful, practical
websites, blogging sites and information. This provides a real shortcut for me to get started.”

This course is ideal for graduates who have completed our courses in: Freelance Writing Stage 1 (formerly known as Magazine and Newspaper Writing Stage 1), Travel Writing and Food Writing who feel they need a little extra help with the “business” side of freelancing – admin, accounting and productivity. It’s also a great resource for any writers or journalists who’ve been working in-house somewhere and are now ready to go it alone – and would like to understand those same things.
If you’ve been freelancing for a while – and you’re confident about the admin/accounting side of things – this course is not for you.
If you've graduated from Copywriting Essentials or SEO Copywriting, then you should do How to Build a Successful Freelance Copywriting Business.
