Are you looking for a way to make a living with your writing talent as freelance journalist? Do you have a computer with a word processor and internet access? Then, you can begin working towards making your dream into a reality. First, you will need to create a writing portfolio to send to potential employers or clients, who are interested in recruiting you for a writing project. Your portfolio should have a picture, an autobiography with writing experience added, and samples of your best articles.
Second, you will want to build an online portfolio, by submitting your work to online writing communities. This way, you can receive feedback on your articles by other authors and readers, as well as receive publishing credits at the same time. In addition, you will meet other authors, who share your passion and maybe able to assist you with improving your writing skills. However, be sure to submit your best work, in order to gain more respect in the writing world.
