...Is completely foreign to me. I would love to get into freelancing. So many sources confirm it’s a great way to beef up your portfolio, gain experience and even a little money.
The biggest barrier between me and the world of freelance? – Well, for one, I have NO idea what it really means or how to get into it.
A minor issue, really.
I mean ‘Freelance’ in and of itself is kind of a confusing concept. How does it work? Do you write the articles before-hand and then go searching for publications who might be interested? Or do you contact the publications, tell them your freelance and then they assign you articles to write?
What are the differences in query letters when querying an article to an editor and a manuscript to an agent?
How much do you get paid per article?
What are some other options for freelance writers, besides magazines and journals?
As you can tell from the above…I’ve got some serious God’nGoogling to do. Eventually I hope to have found the answers and when I do- I’ll be sure to share them here on Creepy Query Girl, hopefully enlightening those who will follow in my freelancing footsteps.
In the meantime, if you guys have any answers or information, I’d love to hear it!
Happy Monday people!
