First, go to the Lebanese Red Cross website and make a donation directly on that site. Any amount. Honor system. Once you’ve donated, then sign up for class below. If you are experiencing financial difficulties and cannot make a donation right now, that's okay! Just put 0 in both sections.

“Is it possible to make good money as a writer?”


“Is this actually realistic? Or am I totally delusional?”


“What are some career paths, jobs, freelance gigs, and other money-making possibilities for me? I don’t even know what’s out there!”


“If I want to make money as a writer, where do I start? What should I do first?”


If those kinds of questions are swirling in your mind, this class is for you!


Attend this free/donation-based writing class and learn from two people who’ve built successful, profitable writing careers, and who love helping others do the same!


Here’s what we’re covering:


- Our personal journeys as writers—from blogs to book deals to launching our own companies—and some of our biggest mistakes and lessons along the way.


- Why the whole “writers don’t make any money” belief is a myth.


- 15 ways you can earn great money as a writer (either as a side hustle or full time), and how to decide which career options might be the best fit for your personality.


- How to build up your confidence as a writer and stop working for free. Because your skills are worth a lot more than “zero dollars.”


- How to start getting paid to write, right now…even if you’re starting from square one and don’t have anything yet. No portfolio, no website, no nothin’.


This class is for all ages. Recommended: 18 and up.
