Today I’m pumped to share my interview with Karen Marston. Karen is a full time freelance writer and also runs a popular site Untamed Writing, where she shares honest and “bullshit free” advice on getting paid to write. After randomly landing on her site one day, I immediately wanted to interview Karen because of her honest writing style and advice – which for me was very refreshing to see.
So let’s get started…
Tell us a little bit about yourself, where are you from, what did you do in your previous life?
I’m Karen, 30, living in Edinburgh, Scotland (though I’m English, lest you be shocked at my lack of Scottish accent should we ever talk). I run Untamed Writing, a blog where I dish out bullshit-free advice on getting paid to write, and teach courses on how to get started with freelance writing.
Oh, I guess I should also mention the fact that I’m a copywriter. Duh. I write copy for businesses that want to give their websites a personality. Before that, I worked in bars. Yup — no corporate history to speak of here (which may explain a few things).
