Freelance writing is a classic side hustle, and one of the first to be widely available on a remote basis. There are dozens of types of writing jobs, including blog content writing, academic writing, technical writing, and ghostwriting (both fiction and nonfiction). Writing is a competitive field to break into, but it can be very lucrative for people with a knack for the written word.
The vast majority of freelance writing jobs can be done from anywhere. Some specialties, such as medical or finance writing, may require a degree in a relevant field, but in most cases, your portfolio matters more than your formal qualifications (or lack thereof).
As you'd expect, to succeed in this space, you'll need excellent writing skills. You'll also need to be organized and a good communicator, since freelance writing often requires managing your own schedule and dealing with clients.
