Question by : How can I get involved in freelance writing?
I am a college student looking to make a little money on the side.
I have heard freelance writing works as a decent way to make some
cash as a college student, but I have no idea how to get started in it.
I have strong writing skills, and I am thinking about majoring some form of writing.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Freelance writing is an excellent way to make money part time or full time for that matter. One of the keys to free lance writing is really just to get started which means landing your first client. Some people disagree about whether you should set low or high rates to begin with. But generally for someone in your situation I would price my skills relatively low so that you can get your first job. And then you can build up from there.
In terms of the places that you can find clients. Check out the freelance sites like
You can also use micro job sites like fiverr to quickly pick up some money.
You may also want to try constant content or text broker. These are sites which will purchase whatever writing you produce.
Remember freelancing is all about your reputation so work hard, deliver on time and you will find that you have a full time job on your hands
