My 18 year-old son, who still has not been able to get hired for his first job ever, started freelance writing recently. He's more up-to-date on current events, video games, movies and topics such as that, and he is earning money already. He's had journalism classes, and photo journalism type courses, at his career center school. He's not new at writing or journalism and it has been a positive influence on him while applying for job positions. I don't recommend this for kids who have zero experience at writing. However, if one is interested I suggest joining a free writing group or taking any classes on writing before doing this. There's more to it than just typing out a story or article.
