Category Archives: Writing Tips

The Writing Tips category on Freelance With Us can provide tips that writers need to get on with their work. This section covers everything from creative writing prompts and the best books on writing, to articles on how you can travel while freelancing. This is one of the most popular sections here on Freelance With Us, as the majority of our readers are writers just getting to grips with this industry. If that sounds like you, then the Writing Tips category may just be what you need.

This is a category page and archive page. That means that its purpose is to list all of the articles on the FWU site that fit into the Writing Tips category. You should be able to see these listed below. Just click on the titles, read the articles and get the information that you need.

If you need further information on freelancing then be sure to read The Online Writer’s Companion by P.J. Aitken. This has been called the “bible for freelancers” and it was written by the founder of Freelance With Us. Aitken also writes articles for the site, but leaves most of the content to the other FWU writers.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for here then be sure to checkout our other categories.
