Back when I first launched 30 Days, 30 Queries, the thing I heard most from people over and over was, “I don’t think I’m ready to pitch national $1-a-word magazines.” It felt scary to many writers.
Some, nay most, writers choose to wait until they are “ready.”
But many writers in 30 Days, 30 Queries decided to BE ready. And then take the actions that would get their pitches seen, read, and ASSIGNED.
Those latter freelance writers?
They’re not playing small anymore.
If you Google them, you’ll see their names in The New York Times, TIME, BBC, The Guardian, National Geographic, NPR, Forbes, Inc., Vogue, Vice, Medium, and more.
They’re making tens of thousands of dollars telling stories for national and international magazines.
What’s more, they didn’t have to SLOG to do it—sending pitch after pitch that no one is reading, writing $50 blog posts for small blogs that adds nothing to your portfolio, and writing stories that you can’t even bring yourself to care about, let alone actual readers.
30 Days, 30 Queries works.
30 Days, 30 Queries is basically the best investment you’ll make in yourself and your writing career all year long.
Yep, the same system that has helped our students write and sell stories that have helped them break into dream publications, win awards, and create six-figure incomes.
So, you decide. Do you want to go through life wondering whether you’re able to invest in yourself or would you like a proven system that will help you stand out from the crowd in a way that gets you ASSIGNMENTS (and turns those assignments into REGULAR WORK)?
Which group do you want to be in a year from now—the success stories or the “if onlys”?
No one ever built a thriving freelance writing career by sitting on their hands.
30 Days, 30 Queries helped me build up editor contacts and confidence—and get out of my own way. Mridu is excellent at explaining pitching concepts and I really felt inspired to send out pitches. The volume and speed at which you’re taught to pitch is invaluable, and it’s something that I’ve found to be lacking with other pitch courses.

I loved this course! I love Mridu’s blog so when I saw that she was offering the 30 Days, 30 Queries course, I knew I had to signn up. It has been totally worth it. I’ve been freelancing full-time for almost six years now, but I still learned something new every single day of the course. I eagerly looked forward to each new lesson and learned so much about how to query not only more, but better… Thank you so much for your personalized help and guidance. In my opinion, that is what makes your course truly shine.

I am a former reporter who entered freelancing with mixed success a few years ago. I have taken MediaBistro courses and read widely about the profession, and nowhere have I come across the tools, strategies, support, and community that Mridu offers in her course. It’s a detailed template for success backed by sharp insights into how the business works and how human beings in the business work. All of this is delivered with incredible humor, humanity and the wisdom of years as a freelancer. Freelancing is no easy feat and it’s up to the writer to put in the work, but this is one teacher who is invested in her students’ success. I can’t recommend this course enough.

I loved this course. It’s thorough, carefully prepared and covers most of the topics one needs to get a foot into the world of international bylines. What I like best is how you share actual experiences and bylines rather than didactic texts. Experience replaces almost everything else. You have this.
