The #1 Secret
Magazines, newspapers and online outlets need THOUSANDS of professional articles every week ...
What most people don't know is that there are SO many magazine markets out there that they have never even heard about. The few titles you see on the news stand make up only a small portion of the market.
Once our students get to know the broader market in their country - several hundred magazines who are in need of professional writers on a daily, weekly and monthly basis - it is a huge AHA. Well-written journalistic articles are in high demand all over the world!
This is Freelance Magazine Writing 101
The fun and eye-opening online education that teaches you everything you need to know to start a new career as a freelance writer for magazines and newspapers. Everything you learn is based on insider information from pros with more 20+ years of experience in the field.
Our students have published more than 1000 articles in 120+ different magazines and newspapers after completing this course.
Now, it's your turn!
Ready to join our growing tribe of professional
freelance magazine journalists?
Look what they have accomplished after this course:
Kine Nymo (35) was a night nurse and had no previous professional writing experience. She sold her first article to one of Norway's most well-known women's magazines (Kamille) right after the course. They wanted 20 more shortly after, and she soon became a regular freelancer for that same magazine! (Yep, those are all of the 20 magazines she is holding ...)
Sounds incredible? Well, she thought so too.
Why Freelance for Magazines?
... oh, my friend. Here are 3 good reasons (there are SO many more):
No formal degree needed
Did you know that any good writer can become a freelance journalist? It is a well-kept secret: You do NOT need a formal degree in journalism. You need to know the craft, the rules and the insider hacks. And yes, you can do this completely from scratch, as long as you have experienced people from the business to teach you everything you need to know. And that, my friend, is our specialty! After this online course you will have both the know-how, the skills and the confidence to call yourself a freelance journalist, and you will know exactly what to do to get a YES!
Work From ANYWHERE, and on your OWN schedule
As a freelance journalist, you are exactly that: FREE. To do whatever you want, wherever you want, whenever it suits you best. It is a true blessing to be able to work from wherever you call "home". Also, you have the chance to acquire a HUGE network in the journalism business, since you can write for 10+ different magazines on a regular basis. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, it can become reality. Just ask our former students.
Creative Freedom: Write About What You Love
In other types of writing jobs, you most often don't get to decide what to write about. As a freelance journalist who knows how to get your foot in the door at any magazine out there, YOU are the boss. When you can angle, plan, research, format, write and sell an article like a pro, there is not much that can stop you, is it?
I’ve learned more from taking this course than I did during four years of journalism studies! Before the course, I could never get through to the editors with my ideas. But after following the curriculum and the advice from the mentors, I sold nine articles even before I finished the course! Anyone who wants to succeed as a freelance journalist should definitely listen to everything they have to teach you. It is worth gold!
