Want to learn how to build a freelancing career? Need help pitching, writing to a deadline, developing your client base, and/or growing your income?

I’m about to run another session of my popular How to Get Started as a Freelancer course through Seattle’s Hugo House (don’t worry, it’s online, everything’s online these days). Here’s the course summary:

How do you get started as a freelance writer? Is it possible to turn freelancing into a full-time job? Nicole Dieker has been a full-time freelancer for nearly a decade, and she’ll teach you everything she knows about how freelancers make money; how to pitch (even when you don’t have clips); how to build a freelancer schedule that combines writing, pitching, networking, and administrative work; and how to grow your earnings over time.

If that sounds like your jam, the four-week course costs $240 ($216 for Hugo House members) and runs from October 19 through November 9.

How to Get Started as a Freelancer is self-directed, which means you’ll get a lesson packet every week with assignments that you can complete on your own time. It also means NO ZOOM MEETINGS.



(You can still participate in asynchronous conversation with your classmates — and with me — on the course’s discussion board.)

Happy to answer questions about the class in the comments — and if you’re interested in starting your freelance career this fall, I hope to see you there! ❤️
