Writers Paying The Rent

Article in The Irish TimesFor anyone thinking of paying the bills by arranging words into sentences, take a look at this article in The Irish Times.

This piece, in no way discourages anybody who wants to write, but instead looks at the creative ways that both aspiring and established authors make money.

The publishing industry is at the vanguard of our increasingly gig-like economy. Writers have had to diversify their income streams for years with teaching gigs and side-hustles. Rather than framing this as a negative, this article looks at the positive ways in which jobs both related and unrelated to writing can impact the writing life. Like getting you away from the blank page.

Warning: This article actively encourages the art of the hustle.
