First, you must decide what type of vegan writer you want to be.
If you haven’t already figured this out, you should be asking yourself some questions, such as:
Do I want to earn money as a vegan writer?
Would I enjoy helping ethical and sustainable businesses grow?
Does plant-based news appeal to me more?
Do I want to write for myself or for others?
Is my writing style casual or formal? Opinion piece or interview? Fact or fiction?
Figuring out your preferences will help you decide your next steps to becoming a vegan writer.
Whichever route you choose, you’ll be contributing your voice towards the vegan cause so we urge you to give it a go no matter what!
Hey gorgeous, you’ve got this!
Your story is worth telling.
At Vegan Sisters, we believe that promoting diversity is the key to shaping a more positive future and what better way to empower people than by giving them the opportunity to contribute their voices and be heard?
Or in this case, be read.
More vegan voices means higher representation and that can only spell good news for the animals and the environment.
Every voice deserves to be heard, you just have to find the right platform for your style of writing.

Yes, yes, yes! It’s entirely possibly to make money as a vegan writer.
There are so many ways to earn an income, including journalism, printed literature, and content creation for ethical businesses.
So how you can align your career with your values and earn enough money to live a life of luxury?
Well, let me tell you how I did it…
How I did it
Trying and failing (at first)
When I quit my job to travel the world in 2017, I desperately tried to find work as a remote writer but it was a struggle to find any paid work at all, let alone jobs suitable for a vegan.
I thought that finding work would be a piece of plant-based carrot cake; I was a decent writer and I’d had plenty of work experience in communications and journalism.
Silly me for being so naive.
I rarely got a reply to my job applications and competing against other writers on Fiverr and Upwork was incredibly draining.
I mean, who offers their writing services for 0.01 cent a word?! How can I compete with such low fees when I need to earn a sustainable income?
Besides, I knew I was worth more than that.
I realised that I needed to take matters into my own hands and find another way into freelance writing.
It took a while but I eventually found my path and now I have more work than I need! Plus, I get to work entirely for vegan businesses.
Ok, you can stop bragging now Alice, how did you do it?
With a lot of blood, sweat, and tears…well, minus the blood.
It was hard work because I was entirely self-taught and, in the beginning, had no idea what I was doing.
But after a lot of graft, Lucy and I developed a tried and tested technique that has successfully found us our ideal vegan clients.
And now we want to share it with you.
Why? Because we want to empower more vegans to help change the world.
Plus, vegan businesses are popping up everywhere and Lucy and I can’t write for them all!
These businesses need YOUR help to make them grow their online presence and to connect with more vegans across the world.

There’s no right or wrong answer to this but our advice would be to just start writing so you can build up a portfolio.
After that, learn everything you can.
