Welcome to Savvy Writing Careers!
I’m Amandah T. Blackwell, owner of Savvy Writing Careers. The website is dedicated to authors, creative writers, freelance writers, fiction writers, non-fiction writers, business writers, and anyone else who would like to learn the ‘ins and outs’ of writing and more importantly writing as a business.
I’ve been a freelance writer, ghost writer, and creative writer the past four years. I began my writing career by falling into it. I was living in Arizona and answered an advertisement for a marketing assistant and noticed the company had another advertisement for a travel blogger. I took a chance and applied for both. I was lucky enough to get an interview and the job!
Since that time I’ve worked with various companies such as a television network, catalog company, interior designer, a wealth management coach, various magazines, and much more. I also guest blogged for a couple of websites writing on various topics such as freelance writing, parenting, teens, and pets. Visit Savvy-Writer, my writer’s website, to check out samples of writing.

Like you, I found it challenging to build my writing business in the beginning. When you’re starting a new career and have no one to ‘show’ you what to do, it can be pretty darn scary. I’d like to get “to the point” and provide you with solid strategies and techniques along with inspiration for those days when you want to throw in the towel. Believe me, I understand. But there’s that little small voice inside your head that convinces you to stick with it. Listen to the voice!
