Freelancing can send you a bit trumpet.

Wait. What?

This is my point: I wrote ‘trumpet’ there because freelancing has sent me mad.

It’s too late for me, but maybe not for you.

You see, freelance copywriter Sarah Townsend has written a book to help prevent freelancers from going mad and substituting words with ‘trumpet’.

It’s called, appropriately enough, Survival Skills for Freelancers.

So, for EP.36 of the All Good Copy podcast, I spoke to Sarah about the book, about how she got into copywriting, and about the different challenges freelancers face.

It all makes for a lovely chat, which you should play in the general vicinity of your ears.
