HOW TO WRITE FOR A LIVING

Would you love to turn your passion for writing into a profitable career?

Can you imagine creating your income writing about topics that inspire you?

Three years ago I set my goal to write my first book and subsequently to make my living from writing about emotions, mental health and trauma whilst working from a coffee shop each day. Within weeks I was doing exactly that...

Up until that point I had never been paid a penny to write a single word.

This 7 part course takes you through the process that I fully invested and committed into to achieve my dream working lifestyle.

Are you ready to create your dream as a writer?

It is also available as a 1:1 mentoring programme. Please email sam@samanthahoughton.co.uk for details on how to upgrade
