Congratulations to Susan Jaeger – Winner of the April Professional Writers’ Alliance Writing Challenge

It took three lay offs to get Susan Jaeger to the point where she was ready to open her freelance copywriting business.

But, within two weeks of making that commitment to herself and her career, she signed her first client.

In her winning PWA Writing Challenge essay, Susan shares three important lessons she’s learned on her journey toward the writer’s life.

You can read Susan’s essay here.

Susan will receive a $100 AMEX gift card for her winning effort.
