“As a 12-year-old black kid in the Mississippi Delta, I chopped cotton, raised hogs and plowed fields to help support my family of 11. Today, I’m an award-winning journalist, and former columnist for two national publications. I’m also a freelance copywriter whose words are used each day to sell millions of dollars worth of products and services. Simply stated, I wrote my way to the top using strategies that guarantee success.”
Secrets of a Writing Hustler is Confessions of an Advertising Man meets On Writing Well. It’s part memoir and part how-to — a “one-stop shop” for freelance writers, journalists, copywriters, and entrepreneurs. It provides practical, easy-to-follow ideas and instructions on how to slip through barriers, beat rejection, weave killer copy, crack multiple markets and succeed as a writer.
Throughout these pages, Roscoe Barnes III shares every tip, strategy, and technique he’s perfected to create words that not only change lives, but generate an income that few writers experience.
