  • I have for the last 6 months been writing newsletter articles, social media and blog posts for an environmental organisation, and for the last 4 years writing assignments in my Undergraduate degree in Media & Communications. I majored in writing and publishing.

    Since I finished my degree and the work contract, I have become what we might call PARALYSED when it comes to getting more writing work. I am in Australia and feel daunted by applying for freelance work in the US. But I want to!

    So I am setting my goal today to work through this module and apply for freelance work. I know I can write just about anything. My fear is illogical and unfounded. Time to act!

    Thank you.
