Two blogging days, two niche subjects, more at the banquet for you.
While on the journey of freelance writing, the majority of writers will find themselves either parading down Article Avenue or hanging out on Corporate Corner.
On Article Avenue, writers both newbie and experienced, will find boutique shops offering tips, haute writing challenges, the latest trends, industry news and insider expert interviews, all geared toward making each article you write the best you’ve written so far. While on Article Avenue the FWJ community will be able to stop under shady “evergreen” topics such as:
o Interviewing 101
o Bullets Make the Point
o Beyond Google – Research Tips
o Anatomy of a Newspaper Article
o Break into Small Town Journalism
o Busting Into Glossies
o P.U. – Why That Web Article Stinks
Those in the know and those dipping their toes in article writing will love the sites and sounds of Article Avenue.
Others in the FWJ community may find their home on Corporate Corner. This is where the press release writers, the brochure designers and web content developers, etc. stop to congregate. These writers talk headlines, clients, newsletters and SEO. Much like Article Avenue, Corporate Corner will have a large grove of “evergreen” topics to anchor the community including:
o Top 5 Mistakes Writers Make When Creating a Press Release
o Take the Boring Out of Brochures
o Stop! Before you Write…Finding the Audience
o Strange CapITalization and Other Business Writing No-No’s
o Stop Giving It Away on the First Date – How to Tease Your Clients into a Relationship
The Corner will also have the improvisational style of a street corner-singing group. Collaborations, “Q and A” sessions and undiscovered talent opportunities will blend in with expert advice and interviews to create a unique, harmonious melody.
Whether you find yourself strolling down the Avenue, hanging out on the Corner or stopping by both, the FWJ community will have a banquet of information from which to nourish their writing spirit. Let my experience, passion and dedication be your guide as we map out this freelance journey together.
