Welcome to our community of ethical writers!
Here you’ll be able to learn how to become a vegan content writer, how to hire our writing services and how to get your work published on our vegan editorial.
So you want a career that reflects your values and the freedom to choose where and when you work?
That’s fantastic! Lucy and I can both personally vouch for vegan content writing as a fulfilling career and we’ve helped plenty of vegans achieve their dreams of becoming professionals in the industry.
With over 16 years of combined experience in communications, Lucy and I have applied our knowledge to benefit ethical businesses since going vegan in 2015. Nowadays, we both work nomadically, travelling the world whilst working online. We’ve seen first-hand the rapidly growing demand for vegan content writers; it’s never been a better time to get started!
We’ll start by exploring the role of a content writer and examining the different types of content you might wish to produce. After that, we will demonstrate how to research, plan and write content, before examining the best ways to find work as a vegan writer.
Let’s get your voice out there!
The role of a content writer can vary significantly; whether freelance or working in-house, your responsibilities could include anything from composing social media posts to attending events and writing up reviews. Whilst you don’t necessarily need academic qualifications to find content writing jobs, you will have to demonstrate your abilities, often via the production of an online portfolio. Thankfully, getting your work published online is relatively easy to do nowadays.

But what about vegan content writers? Well, a vegan writer is a creative professional who has aligned their career with their values. Not only does this provide a higher sense of purpose, but it also helps to build great functional relationships when working with ethical businesses because they’ll share the same goals and passions. By becoming a vegan content writer, you’ll experience more fulfilment and satisfaction in your career and you’ll benefit veganism as a whole by working for and promoting brands that support the cause.
In order to establish which writing services you will offer, you must first decide the style of writing you prefer. There are endless types of content you could choose to write, including:
Figuring out your preferences will help you decide your next steps to becoming a vegan writer. Sometimes this means trying out a few options until you decide upon what you really enjoy. Whichever route you choose, you’ll be contributing your voice toward the vegan cause but we recommend keeping your service offerings to a minimum so you can focus on what you do best.
Whichever style of writing you choose to focus on, your first step to becoming a vegan content writer is to learn how to research. From brand discovery to finding statistics to back up your work, research is key to successful content.
Discover how to build the foundations of great copy whilst ensuring you follow best practices for SEO, your client and your readers:
Understanding the brief, target audience and objectives will help you to write valuable and relevant content to achieve desired results. This can be accomplished through the creation of content writing strategies.
Planning and structuring your vegan content will enable you to track and analyse its effectiveness. Furthermore, since content marketing often forms part of a wider strategy, appropriate planning will ensure your work facilitates this.
You’ve researched and made a plan, but now you have a blank page staring at you. Writing the content will probably take up the majority of your time, although the volume of content will vary depending on your assignment. But don’t be fooled into thinking that the shorter the copy, the shorter the time spent writing; carefully crafted ad copy can sometimes take longer to compose than a long-form blog! Nevertheless, blogs can be a daunting task when you’re faced with a blank page and a 1000-word count target, not to mention the editing and approval process you will likely face.
Once you know how to research, plan and write like a boss, you’ll need to find some clients with whom to showcase your skills. This can be challenging, particularly when you’re only just starting out as a vegan writer. We know because we’ve been there. And we want you to know that you’re worth SO MUCH MORE than 5p a word! Seriously. Trust us when we say you don’t need to waste time hustling on Fiverr and Upwork. You don’t have to compete with other freelance writers to write 2,000 words of boring copy for $50. You are worth more than that and it is entirely possible to find clients that value you and your work.
