Freelance Journalism is about writing non-fiction. When you’re a trained non-fiction writer and you want extra cash, you simply write something informative (we show you how) and send it to a newspaper, magazine, website or blog (… maybe even start your own blog), and uploading your ebooks on Amazon is the ultimate path to earning a passive income!
