I have learned more from Susan in the last 10 days than in all the tortured hours I groped alone trying to “get it.” Above and beyond the modules, she has had held my hand and guided me through endless email conversations. (Delete this part Susan if you don’t want people to know you baby your clients!). I can not recommend Submission Savvy enough. She could re-name it, “Sanity Saver!”LESLIE BLANCHARD OF A GINGER SNAPPED


“Susan presented an online program on blogging for the Write Like You Mean It group at Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. The presentation covered (in just the right amount of detail) writing online and finding an audience. Attendees were thrilled with the notes they took and empowered to pursue their blogging dreams. Her reflection on personal experiences with blogging were especially relevant, sharing challenges and successes.”PAM TURNER, SR. LIBRARY ASST. – CHARLOTTE MECKLENBERG LIBRARY


“Susan’s course helped me develop an achievable strategy for my growth as a writer. Through setting realistic goals, exploring different publishing opportunities, fostering existing relationships with editors, how to promote my work once it is published, and how to layout my featured writing page. The submission tracker spreadsheet is an invaluable tool—that has helped me stay organized, focused, and on track for my next projects. The submission savvy course streamlines the whole submission process for you and makes you excited to start submitting your work!

Beyond Your Blog provided an invaluable service, which I fully credit for not only my first feature, but my first viral post. 20,000 shares and counting. Thanks BYB!MARY KATHERINE BACKSTROM of MOM BABBLE


I just want to give you a BIG thank you for all you do. Thanks to Beyond Your Blog & the incredibly helpful FB community you created, I wrote, submitted and got paid for my first piece of writing in about 10 years. (I recently jumped back into freelance writing after a 10-year hiatus to raise & homeschool my kids.) I forgot how great and empowering it feels to write and get paid. And I never would have found these online markets if it weren’t for Beyond Your Blog. So thank you, from the bottom of my writer’s heart.


“Susan, your resource and podcasts have paid off in a short space of time. This weekend, I had two pieces accepted for publication! A huge ‘Thank you’ is in order as yours was the resource from which I launched as a serious freelance writer. The advice on when you get your first rejection was invaluable as I immediately got past it and headed straight for Plan B.”MELINDA FARGO OF WHAT MEL DID
