Things you need to know before you sign up
While this online workshop is spread out over 12 weeks, you will be able to set your own pace (to fit in with your busy schedule).
We do check in with you to keep you accountable to your own writing goals.
In the past 15+ years we have managed to write and publish thousands of books, both fiction and non-fiction.
In doing so we have learned how to successfully manage running a business AND write and publish a book. We want to share this experience with you - the author.
Our next class starts in 2 months: on the 1st of April.
As the author of your book, you need to plan and schedule the time you need to finish this project.
We actively check in with you every week asking you to show what you've written and to give feedback on your progress.
The online workshop goes for 12 weeks, but your course access is valid for 365 days to give you time to finish your book at your own pace.
