About Linda Formichelli
I’ve been a full-time freelancer since 1997 and have written for more than 130 magazines and websites, including USA Weekend, Inc., Health, Redbook, WebMD, Cleveland Clinic Magazine, Pizza Today, Women’s Health, Family Circle, and Writer’s Digest (where I’m a contributing editor). I support my family with my freelancing (my husband is a part-time freelance writer), and earn a full-time income working part-time hours using methods you’ll read about in this blog. In addition, I’ve co-authored eight books, have done copywriting for companies like OnStar and Pizzeria Uno, and have blogged professionally.
In addition to writing for magazines, writing books, and running this blog, I offer phone mentoring for writers and teach an e-course on how to create a kick-ass article query. I also offer cool freebies like teleclasses for writers and a packet of 10 query letters that worked. Please do poke around the site to take advantage of all these offerings.
About Diana Burrell
I’m a Boston-based freelance writer and author who has written for top publications like Parenting, Family Circle, Self, Psychology Today, Writer’s Digest, Oxygen, The Writer, the Boston Globe, Cook’s Illustrated, and more. My book authoring credits include Psychology Today’s Secrets of Successful Weight Loss (Alpha/Penguin), The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success, The Renegade Writer’s Query Letters That Rock, and Rock-Solid Queries. Later this spring, look out for The Writer’s Guide to Pseudonyms, which will be released through Renegade Writer Press. Which reminds me: I write and publish fiction under a pseudonym. My lips are sealed, so don’t ask.
I’m also a popular (and some say entertaining) speaker at writing conferences. I’ve spoken about my research secrets to my query letter marketing tips at conferences such as the American Society of Journalists and Authors, Chicago Magazine Writers & Editors One-on-One, the Editorial Freelancers Association, and the Rhode Island Library Association. I’ve taught freelance writing classes through community colleges, adult education centers, and the Renegade Writer website.
