Problems Freelance Writers Face

Hi, I'm Issa Bacsa,
owner of Isang Manunulat

I am a former registered medical technologist and nurse before becoming a creative writer in 1999. I started freelance writing in 2001 but with a few corporate employments in between. Experience has been a good teacher because it gave the tests first and the lessons afterward. 

I will help you navigate your freelance writing path by sharing with you my knowledge, my resources, and my experiences. 


Truly, the best teacher there is.
