January 10, 2022 [ALBUQUERQUE]—RN2writerDaily.com launches today as the first digital publication devoted to covering freelance writing business news for nurses and other clinicians. The publication is a project of RN2writer, the leading online destination for nurses who want to become freelance writers. RN2writer offers coaching programs and courses in health journalism, content marketing writing and (soon) medical editing and essay.
“RN2writer Daily supports our mission to help as many nurses as possible become freelance writers so that nurses can ‘own’ the healthcare communications space,” said publisher and editor Elizabeth Hanes BSN RN. “We are thrilled to offer this new, free resource to support nurses – and all clinicians – seeking a new, creative way to use their clinical knowledge and expertise away from the bedside by starting their own freelance writing businesses.”
In addition to publishing news and information across more than 40 categories, RN2writer Daily aims to give novice nurse writers an opportunity to be paid to write.
“As this publication becomes self-sustaining, we will invite article pitches from nurses who have only a few writing samples in order to provide them with real-world experience in the reporting and editorial process,” Hanes said. “Initially we’re contracting with two established nurse writers who are alumnae of our health journalism course to produce content, along with one staff writer and myself. I can’t wait for the day when we can throw open the doors to pitches from all nurse writers.”
The digital publication will make money from advertising revenue in the form of banner ads, affiliate links, and sponsored content. Hanes says a significant portion of the publication’s revenue will be allocated to contracting with more nurse writers to produce content for the site. “I’m very excited to be able to offer opportunities for nurse writers to gain reporting experience by writing for RN2writer Daily, and the more money the site makes, the more writers we’ll be able to contract with,” she said.
The publication is launching with a catalog of nearly 100 articles plus a feed containing the most recent episodes of The RN2writer Show on YouTube. Readers can expect new content at least three times a week at first. As the publication’s name implies, it ultimately intends to publish daily content across a broad cross-section of topics, ranging from the business of freelance writing to grammar and punctuation to essay and fiction. Readers can subscribe to a periodic email newsletter containing the most recent articles published at the site. Nurses who previously purchased any RN2writer products will automatically be subscribed to the newsletter.
Nurses and other clinicians who are interested in becoming a professional writer can learn more by reading the ebook Design Your Dream Career as a Nurse Writer, in which Hanes lays out a simple strategy for launching a writing business. The ebook purchase includes a complimentary subscription to RN2writer Daily. RN2writer also offers coaching programs and courses for nurses at all stages of writing career development, from novice to expert.
