Roving Report: Sponsored Content Practice Assignment Live Review

We are what we do - Aristotle quote on a slate blackboard agains

Most months on Wealthy Web Writer, you have the opportunity to hone your writing skills and receive expert feedback.

It starts with a realistic brief for a Practice Assignment with instructions on how and when members should submit their assignments. Then Managing Editor, Heather Robson, randomly chooses a few to review live.

When you participate, you’re exposed to a new type of assignment and you see the kind of information a client might provide for that assignment. Then you get to try your hand at writing it, in a low-stakes environment.

Once you’ve written the Practice Assignment, you can submit it to Heather, share it with a writing group you’re part of, or post it on Facebook for review in the Online Copywriters group. Whatever the source, feedback will help you to improve your writing.

If Heather reviews your assignment, you’ll have a professional review of your work. Even if yours isn’t picked, you can learn a lot from her other reviews and see how other writers approach the same assignment.

In this Roving Report, I cover Heather’s review of Sponsored Content posts. Heather selected three assignments to review live — you can watch the entire webinar HERE.

The Brief

Here’s the assignment brief.

If you’re not familiar with Sponsored Content, that’s because it’s a fairly new type of writing. It’s becoming more popular, so this is a good time to get acquainted with what Sponsored Content is — and what it isn’t.

Susanna Perkins

Susanna was dragged back, kicking and screaming, into freelancing after losing her job in the banking meltdown in March, '09. One 3-month stint in an appalling temp job persuaded her to get serious about establishing herself as web writer. In March, 2012, she moved to a small town in Panama with her husband and three small dogs. After enjoying the writer's life in the culture of "buenas" and "mañana" for 2-1/2 years, she's returned to the US. At least for now.

  • I am currently composing a social media plan using the proposal template within the AWAI library. When completed may I send it for a review. Never having wrote one before I would appreciate the feedback. (Where do I send it for review.)
