Welcome to the All Indie Writers freelance writing blog. You can browse the categories to the right, view our latest posts below, or visit our main freelance writing blog feed for access to all of our posts for freelance writers.
While we feature articles on direct pitching such as queries and cold calling, we focus more on Jennifer Mattern's "query-free freelancing" approach -- a marketing style that puts writer platforms and networking first.
The idea is to find ways to build your professional visibility and network in a way that helps clients find you instead of you having to continually seek them out. You can learn more about query-free freelancing in Mattern's e-book series.
For new freelance writers without an established platform, we feature third party freelance writing jobs (for free) on our job board. Mattern offers more personal coaching and assistance to freelance writers in our writing forums. We also offer a variety of tools and resources for freelancers, some of which you will find below.
