From the Community:
I’ve been reading AIW from the beginning and I always find something of value there. Jenn and her contributors tell it like it is, refusing to sugar-coat the realities of the writing and publishing life.
In addition, it’s a good place to look for trusted recommendations on tools that will help you to be a more productive and better organized writer and self-publisher. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

About Freelance Writing
When I first met Jenn I was an experienced writer but completely rudderless when it came to successfully marketing my business. Within a few short months she helped me to transform my brand and improve my copywriting skills. I’d followed so-called experts for years, wasting money and going nowhere. However, with Jenn, I finally got the real deal. She’s direct, firm and takes no nonsense, which is just what you need to truly succeed.
All Indie Writers and its creator, Jenn Mattern, have been an incredibly supportive and helpful resource for my freelance writing business. I believe that the information I've gotten there has added value to my writing career in so many immeasurable ways. Mattern knows her stuff. She's got the years of hands on experience to back it all up. Best of all, she has the quickest bullshit detector in the industry and she's not afraid to use it.
When I started devoting more time to my freelance writing business nearly a decade ago, All Indie Writers was one of the first websites I started to read. Through the site, through the years, I have learned so much valuable information. Things that have made me think more about what I was doing and how I was doing it. In my view Jenn Mattern is a leading global voice for the freelance community. I feel fortunate to be a reader and to have benefited from her wise content. I feel even more fortunate to call her a colleague and friend.
All Indie Writers is my go-to site for many reasons, but mostly because of Jenn’s talent for building and maintaining a successful freelance writing business. No erroneous information here – Jenn knows her stuff and practices what she preaches. What’s more, Jenn tells you what you need to hear – no sugar-coating or hand-holding, but honest, helpful advice that comes from her wealth of experience. I learn something new every day from Jenn, and if you’re paying attention, you will, too.
