If you have an opportunity to take a writing workshop from Kristin Owens, DO IT! I attended her “Freelancing 101” workshop. The experience far exceeded my expectations. She is a full-time writer who is encouraging and doesn’t waste one moment on vague or fluffy stuff. Throughout the workshop, she shared tangible lessons for navigating the freelance journey, from developing ideas to submitting pitches and managing the business side of things. At each stage, she provided concrete examples and templates that have been instrumental to her success. Kristin’s facilitation style is also top-notch, incorporating real-world activities to help attendees adapt and apply her tools to their own writing needs. By the end of the session, I had greater confidence, plus drafts of two pitch letters that I didn’t even know I had in me. Kristin’s workshop was a life-changing experience in terms of how I see myself as a writer. That’s saying a lot, given that I have an MA in English, have attended international writers’ conferences, and have my own non-fiction book on the market. Taking a workshop from Kristin Owens will help you “level up,” regardless of where you are today.
