I received an email for this today. First of all, is it legit or is it a scam of some kind? How does it work? That is, what are you writing for - a web site, a paper publication? Who decides what you'll write?
From what I can see, you spend money to join a "club" that provides help for your writing (including a magazine).
Here are several problems with the company:
First, there's the fact that the website has this extreme emphasis on the words FREE, RICH, and MONEY (emphasis not added).
Second, this article goes on a long rant against the website.
Third, the emphasis on secrecy is another flag.
Fourth, I highly doubt that the company cares about your writing and only cares about your money being in their pocket.
Fifth, check out the suspicion sign up page.
I would stay away from The Barefoot Writer. They might be helpful, but you can probably find better material at a better price without all the constant badgering for money. I think it is a perfectly legal scam. As in they aren't breaking the law, but they are basically cheating you.
