"Thanks to your course I have two gigs - writing stories for Chinese students of English, which is my main source of income, and a very promising blog spot on Patheos. Ian steered me away from content mills, so thanks for that, because I would have lost time and impetus there."
- Duncan Pile
"Before I joined, I was struggling a lot – not knowing how to organize, not understanding how to pitch, not getting the skills to maintain work – but all of that can be learned in these courses.
Now I have 2 steady writing clients who want me on board for the foreseeable future (both online magazines), several one or two-off jobs, and a great understanding of what it takes to be a freelance writer. All of this happened within 2 months and because I directly used what I've learned in Writing Launch."
- Roger Malespin
"Since Joining Writing Launch I've had several magazine articles accepted and most importantly, these are in the style and genre I want to work in. It was my biggest frustration that I couldn't find work that played to my strengths, so thank you for your help with that."
- Lyn McNamee
"Writing launch is an absolutely wonderful platform, if you're a marketing person I would absolutely recommend The Copywriting Crash Course to start with as it is packed with nuggets of amazing information you won't get anywhere else. The interaction in the comments of each lesson allow you to also ask questions and interact with other people like you learning the same thing and allows you to really appreciate the whole experience"
- Michael F.
"Writing Launch made a huge difference in the way I approach writing. I've always been a creative writer, and these courses helped me harness those skills and learn to use them for more lucrative everyday forms of writing. Since taking these courses, I've gotten two articles published and have two more forthcoming in other publications."
- Emily Zimmerman
“After taking Ian’s class, the money I was able to earn from my writing allowed me to finally visit my family in Brazil (it had been 5 years since I had last been there). The material in Ian’s course is easy to understand and actionable, and you will come out of this course feeling (and acting) like a professional writer who gets paid for your words.”
- Mariana Abeid-McDougall
"OMG! I'm getting published! I had completely forgotten about my submission - which is kinda cool - and out of nowhere came the email. It's for Sasee. I'll link it when it gets published. Thanks to this group and the classes, I did it. I finally did it!
- Susan Lewis
"Good content, lots to learn, and great support for students. I really felt personally tutored and supported. The course helped me gain confidence and taught me a lot about everything that comes into being a freelance writer, and a freelancer in general."
- Nely van Seventer
"If you are looking for writing knowledge and you're not that excited about taking a class, get this membership. Do it Now! I'm serious, they might figure out how much value there is in it and increase the price. I would do it again in the future if more classes are added or as a refresher. Plus, there is great value here besides the classes, it really is a bargain!"
- Kim Hamlin
"This course is a godsend. The value is unlike anything I have encountered thus far. As a Writing Launch member, you have access to countless resources, including, but not limited to: education in different fields of writing, talks, Q&As, and direct one-on-one mentoring- which, in itself is an amazing value. Jacob and Ian take the time to respond personally to emailed queries, something invaluable to a person like me, who began with no formal writing education, and had been looking for a self-paced, entry-level avenue to break into the writing world. The course walks you through the process, and offers instruction for every level of professional writing. It is refreshing to see that there are still those who believe in helping their fellow writers, and making this information accessible; those who prioritize educating others instead of hoarding information, or charging astronomically for it. The one-month trial is a fantastic way to see for yourself, risk-free, what the course has to offer, and when you do, you'll see that the value and available resources far exceed the small monthly investment."
- Karen B
"Writing Launch is an incredible opportunity to learn the skills to become a freelance writer. If this is your dream, give Writing Launch a chance. You won't be sorry."
- Marissa Tims
"Ian and Jacob have developed a comprehensive, step-by-step, hands-on approach to freelance writing. Their courses are interesting and effective at covering all aspects. They are consummate professionals offering great value within their platform. I highly recommend Writing Launch."
- Asra Jawaid
"Even as a seasoned freelancer, I was able to learn a lot from the course. Great actionable tips and tricks in every lesson."
"I recommended Writing Launch to a new writer who asked for help on LinkedIn. I'll keep doing that because Ian and Jacob understand what writers need help with. Send them an e-mail, and you'll know how dedicated they are. I learned all about niche, the art of pitching, how to get clients, and much more in less than a month. Publishers directory is a powerful resource, and I watch the webinars multiple times for motivation."
- Anuj Jindal
"I found the courses extremely valuable. The database of blog and magazines to pitch to is incredible. What I loved the most for the simplicity of everything. There was no overtly enthusiastic videos claiming to change my life yet every page, every day's of course material was full of useful information. I recommend the course to everyone starting out or even the ones who are seeing slow progress on their writing journey. Thank you so very much Ian and Jacob."
- Manisha Singh
"Writing Launch provided the answers to a lot of questions I'd been toying with as I considered becoming a full-time freelancer, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it also offered encouragement and, even better, fodder for the imagination. The possibilities seem endless now."
