Earn a great living as a freelance medical writer without spending all your time marketing
You love writing, and you love science and medicine. You also love the freedom to work from anywhere, to spend time with your kids, to be the boss of your time.
That’s why a freelance medical writing business makes so much sense for you.
The only problem is that you don’t love marketing. And you’re not sure where the clients are hiding, or how to turn a one-off client into a fan who becomes a source of steady work. It’s frustrating and difficult, and sometimes it feels like you’ll never make enough to cover the mortgage if you don’t get a “real” job.
But with well-defined goals and vision, and with a proven process, a successful freelancing medical writing business IS possible. And with less struggle than you think.
And we're here to help you every step of the way.

There's a few things that we've learned over the years as freelance writers, and one of them is that clients want more than just accurate content. Substance matters in writing, but clarity, logic, and flow matter even more.
Yes, getting the facts straight and being accurate is incredibly important. But learning to communicate all of that information in a way that is easy to follow and easy to digest is paramount.
Without a doubt, the clarity of your writing will bring you more steady clients and income than any marketing campaign that you could put together.

Have you ever thought back to a time and said to yourself, “Geez, I wish I knew then what I know now”? Yep, that’s me when I think back to when I started my freelance medical writing business. Lots of uncertainty and lots of self-doubt.
Trust me, I wasted a lot of time and energy on things that just simply didn’t matter.
But little by little, I figured things out. From both a business perspective and from a writing perspective. That’s why I’m here to help you cut through the clutter of what works and what doesn’t to build a profitable freelance business.
Hey there, I’m Jenn, and I’ve built a successful freelance medical writing business without ever spending a dollar on marketing. I still have 75% of the clients that I started with in the beginning, and I really believe that keeping those "sticky" clients is soooo much easier than finding new ones.
My clients have dubbed me a "wordsmith", a compliment that I take seriously since I’ve helped them win hundreds of thousands of dollars in CME funding with a proposal funding rate of 70%. (Take that, academia!)
I love to geek out on all things writing, especially when it comes to figuring out how to make your writing easier to understand and how to make your audience follow your content effortlessly.
I live just outside of Pittsburgh, PA (yinz better check it out some time) with my husband and two rambunctious sons. When I’m not writing, I’m eating lots of Mexican food and binge watching Netflix when I can.
It's hard to leave the career you've been pursuing for a long time, where you've become an expert, and where the path is well-trodden and well-defined. It's even harder to embark on something as adventurous as freelance writing, isn't it?
If only someone had a roadmap and a formula for how to make sure that it all worked out...
Hi, I'm Maria, and I'm very familiar with this scenario. I've switched careers twice (once from genetics to law; then from law to freelance writing and consulting). Along the way, I learned a lot about marketing and business development, got to know the ins and outs of LinkedIn and Twitter for building relationships and getting clients, and wrote my way to a solid income.
My clients think I'm "a wizard with words" and a "lifesaver," and they trust me to write materials that connect and impact their intended audience. It is incredibly gratifying to have your writing acknowledged by thrilled clients. And over the years, I've found that all it takes to satisfy clients is clear writing and flowing content, and paying attention to client relationships.
I live just outside of D.C. (If yinz don't want to visit Jenn in Pittsburgh, you're very welcome to come on down and visit with me in Virginia instead!) In my spare time, I procrastinate about writing fiction (I wrote a novel, and I've been futzing with the sequel since its publication), grow vegetables on my balcony, and travel.
