I took the last decade of knowledge, failure, wins, consistency and intentionality to package my newest book titled, Fundamentals of Freelance Writing.
The book is a product of my self-education and research work on freelance writing and journalism.
In the course of training people on freelance writing, I have been asked by participants on how to leverage on freelance writing. I have also received calls and “you can do it signals” from different quarters on the need to put some of my freelance writing experiences in a compiled book for the benefit of aspiring freelance writers who might never have the opportunity of hearing me facilitate face-to-face training on freelance writing.
In response to the calls and signals, this book is birthed. The book represents the summary of most of the training paper presentations I have facilitated on different platforms and feedback I have received so far.
The book provides step-by-step approach on how freelance writers can develop ideas in coherent paragraphs; express themselves clearly, correctly and concisely.
It also contains ideas on how writers can market themselves and use storytelling as a secret tool to give their clients and content consumers moments they will hold dear for a long time.
Kindly spare few minutes to read few reviews and learn more about my book:
“The book is a ready tool for writers. It’s a guide to structured and strategic writing that will attract publishing. I recommend it for persons with a desire to take their writing passion and skills to a career level of self-reliance, working remotely especially in this new normal and monetizing of skill and talent. The more diverse a writer can be, the more likely they are to be published and paid for their works.” – Mrs. Dideolu Adekogbe, Education Consultant and author, A Handbook of School Administration Practice

“Many aspiring and already established freelancers have continued to remain in the shadows, not on account that they are less qualified; the reasons being that some lack the ability to first present themselves, their to present their works and create an impressive lasting impression in the minds of their clients. So, Fundamentals of Freelance Writing written by Kayode Adeogun not only captures the art, craft and science of freelance writing; the book is handy as a guide for these reasons: its simplicity and style that make anyone resonate with everyday reality and dynamics of writing; the incorporation of exercises and assignments, glossary and bibliography sections and an in-depth referencing for further studies. Perhaps, one underlying secret in the book is that freelancing can and will pay your bills and more. How? Simply put, when you get the book by the coach of content writing himself – Adeogun. Without any reservations, I therefore recommend this book for every aspiring freelancer and those already in the game for the aforementioned reason and more.” – Elizabeth Osayande, Freelance Writer, Vanguard Newspaper; Correspondent, Newsbeat Online Newspaper.
