Six week course, runs Mon 8th Oct – Sun 18th Nov
Start Freelancing begins on Monday 8th October and runs for six weeks. It’s a practical course, with full group support, that takes you step-by-step through the process of launching your freelancing career.
All courses run for six weeks, with a further four week support period.
If you're interested in a course that isn't currently open, scroll down to join the waiting list: you'll be the first to hear when I'm about to run it again.
Each course costs $60, which includes everything: six modules, released weekly, plus four weeks of support after the course ends.
Would you like to make money from your writing? Freelancing is a fantastic way to do so: it's much faster than relying on book sales, or advertising income from a blog. This beginner-friendly course will help you make a great start.
Are you looking to go further with your freelancing? This in-depth course covers finding and handling clients, marketing yourself (painlessly!), raising your rates, and tackling common freelancing problems.
Have you stalled on a big writing project, like a book or blog? On Track will help you get going again. Whatever sort of writing you do, and however far (or not!) you've got with your work-in-progress, you're welcome to join us.
A blog is a fantastic way to share your writing with the world, but I know how daunting it can be to get everything set up. This course walks you step by step through the process, from choosing a name for your blog to creating your first post.
Are you ready to take your blog further? This hands-on course helps you write better posts, create crucial pages for your blog, get to grips with blog post formatting, and more. Note: you'll need to have your blog online before beginning.
If you're fairly confident about writing on your own blog, the next step is to write for other people's blogs and get your name out there. In this course, we'll cover everything you need to know to pitch and write brilliant guest posts.
What You’ll Get
Hands-on text based modules
All the courses have a strongly practical focus, with no filler or fluff. The course materials are mainly written text, rather than video, as I find that’s the format most writers prefer.
Occasional videos where appropriate
Several of the courses use occasional video content where appropriate (e.g. to show you the process of setting up a domain name). All videos come with a summary of instructions though.
Check-ins and reward cards
Each course includes an optional weekly “check-in” to help you make steady progress. Check-in on time (via email or Facebook), and you’ll get a stamp on your reward card.
Dedicated Facebook group for help and support
Chat with others taking the course alongside you, and get direct support from me. I’m friendly and encouraging and I’m always happy to cheer you on, commiserate, or answer questions!
What Past Members Say
It has been a rewarding experience for me, though challenging, as it’s all so new to me. The feedback has really helped me personally. As far as course content – it’s brilliant what ever stage people are at and it’s good to be accountable as it keeps us working. You are always there for support, even by email and you have been a great help to me personally – especially when I was pulling my hair out over WP etc … you Ali Luke are a special person!
Blog On (Spring 2018) member
I’ve been a journalist for the past 15 years and while I’m quite disciplined when it comes to my work, I tend to procrastinate with regards to my personal writing projects. Joining the On Track Writing Course has kept me, well, on track! It has provided an easy writing structure that I can follow and made me more accountable. In fact, after I finished the two-month course, I managed to finish two pillar posts for my travel blog and the second draft for my thesis proposal.
