A professional writer publishes frequently, is read widely, and benefits from their work financially.
Write Like A Pro will teach you how to finally establish
a consistent writing practice, reach a wide audience,
and monetize your work in different ways.
Every failed writer has failed for the exact, same reason: they stopped writing.
With this course, that won't happen to you.
This program is perfect for frustrated writers, who really want to make writing their career, but somehow got stuck or even quit along the way.
It is optimized for non-fiction writing, but works for fiction too.
In Write Like A Pro, you will learn:
...and a whole lot more!
If you want writing to be your career,
the only thing that matters is consistency.
When I first started writing, I didn't know what professional writers know: the only thing that matters is being consistent.
That's the "big secret" of writing. You have to find a way to sit down in your chair over, and over, and over again. That's it.
But amateurs don't know that. I didn't know that. And so I wasn't consistent.
I would have three great ideas and write about them three weeks in a row. Then, I'd hit a snag and not publish anything for a month.
It was only when I made a conscious effort at building a real writing habit that failure started to faze me less and less.
But when I think back to all my lowest points, my worst moments, the last thing I would have wanted to hear is "try harder." I honestly believe it would've made me quit.
Because here's another truth about writing:
If you've picked up a pen already, even just once, and loved it, consistency will come naturally once your frustrations wash away.
That's why you have to keep playing around with different things. Eventually, stuff will click into place. But to do that, you must find a practice that lets you enjoy the process itself.
This course is designed to help you develop that practice. It is two parts strategy and one part tactics.
I want to share all of my experiences, my frustrations, my highs and lows with you. All while giving you actionable marketing tactics, timeless writing techniques, and creative ways to financially benefit from your work.
These are the tight ropes and loose ends I wish I had to guide and inspire me way back when.
By the end of this course, you will have:
...and an understanding of everything that separates amateur writers from the pros.
"Having gotten to know Nik over the last few months and learning his process, I can say without hesitation that if you want to learn how to turn your writing into a full time income - there is no one better to learn from.
Plus, the guy is cool."
- Michael Thompson, Top Writer on Medium with over 5,000 followers
Alright, so who are you?
What qualifies you to teach me?
Hi, my name is Nik. I'm a professional writer. After four years of struggling, failing, experimenting, and learning, I now earn a full-time income writing about whatever I want.
Every month, hundreds of thousands of people read my work.
They do so on places like Medium...
...through my book summaries on Four Minute Books...
...and even Quora, where I've amassed over 17 million views:
I started writing in 2014, but it was only once I got a consistent writing schedule going that I managed to build a name for myself.
Now, I make a living doing what I love. Here's how much I made from one of my several income sources, the Medium Partner Program, in just one month:
It's so cliché I almost hate to say it, but I'm not showing you these things to brag. I share these details to give you an idea of what's possible when you put in real blood, sweat, and tears.
I have 25,000 followers on Medium, 41,000 on Quora, and 23,000 email subscribers.
My work has been featured on Medium, Pocket, Lifehacker, CNBC, The Muse, Thought Catalog, and many more reputable publications.
I've been a Top Writer on Quora for the past two years in a row.
Now, I want to share everything I've learned along the way with you.
