Hey fellow remote writers!
I've got an exciting announcement to make. We're re-opening the doors to the Digital Nomad Writing Club to take on students for our upcoming February semester, which starts on February 8, 2021.
If you want to learn all about what you'll get out of your six months with us, head here.
We formed the Digital Nomad Writing Club as a place for both experienced and aspiring writers to:
* Network with like-minded writers
* Offer/request support, advice, tips
* Share good news, jokes, writing challenges
* Just be themselves
Right now, we're at the early stages of launching a (highly selective) flagship, foundational/apprenticeship programme for our online writing community that is:
* Part writing school
* Part work-experience
* Part mentorship
(We like to call it a ‘Virtual Writing Academy,’ but it’s so much more.)
Joining me (and our chief editor, Julie-Ann) on this 6-month programme (run completely online) will give you:
Unforgettable, well-rounded and practical ‘apprenticeship’ writing experience
The opportunity to write for some of our paid clients (while gaining experience working for a digital content agency)
The opportunity to co-author some articles with us, for our clients (we try to get you bylines as often as possible, to polish off that portfolio!)
An excellent virtual environment to begin or continue creating an impressive portfolio with professional bylines (aka publicly visible credits to YOU on a published article)
Reputable professional references
A ‘graduation certificate’
And much, much more as we get to know you better.
I’m eager to craft (and constantly improve on!) a sustainable and consistent professional writers’ programme that will give you a jumpstart AND a visible advantage in the writers’ marketplace when you apply for your next job or writing gig.
For this coming February, I want to keep our student-apprentice/scholarship group smallish, high-quality and manageable for me and my team (so that we can continue to keep things on our clients’ end running smoothly)!
Here are the details of what’s available:
2x intern scholarships* (no programme fee//requires an additional 5-7 hours of writing work per week, working with our editorial team)
2x semi-scholarships* (50% off the full price//programme fee)
*(with a fully refundable $100 USD commitment fee)
BONUS (for those who participate in our February semester):
* A 30-minute writer’s career coaching call (worth $100 USD - but complimentary for if you get the scholarship), which will allow me the time and headspace to get to know you, too.
If you’re interested, please apply here. You'll be asked for:
Your name/email address
To choose your desired semester
Your CV and 3 writing samples
And a cover letter stating why you think you'd be a great fit for our programme. If you're applying for a scholarship, please indicate so here!
Meanwhile, you can hop over to Facebook to join us in our free digital nomad writing community, where we offer free writing advice, tips, challenges, games, and giveaways.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
P.S. Here is a link to my FREE Get Paid Plan for aspiring writers, which I put together to help you land your dream client or your next paid writing gig! Hope you find it super useful and I’d love your feedback on what you tried and how it worked out for you! You can reply to this email or in the DNWC Facebook group.
