My name is Lauren Tharp. I started my freelance writing career as a teenager (over 15 years ago) and never stopped. On August 17th of 2010, I opened up LittleZotz Writing and I made freelance writing + editing my sole source of income.
Through LittleZotz Writing I’ve worked in the writing and marketing departments of a television mini-series, an online radio station, a designer headphone company, and countless small businesses around the world.
My blog for writers has won multiple awards and was named one of the best in the business by The Write Life, Positive Writer, and others.
I’m also the Managing Editor for Be A Freelance Blogger and the Editorial Assistant for Copyblogger — two of the largest blogs for content creators in the world!
As a freelance writer myself, I know the struggles that writers go through. As an Editor, I know what goes on behind-the-scenes in the blogging world and what it takes to get your pitches read — and your posts published.
