About the Course


Beginners or part-time writers, anyone writing for personal satisfaction but also for greater success – this is for you:


The writing course with a difference, packed with professional advice on how to complete your work, market it and get published. Discover outlets likely to take your work, learn professional techniques to impress editors and increase your chances of receiving cheques rather than rejection slips. Learn how to banish the dreaded ‘writer’s block’ (it really works!) and how to turn dreams of writing into a completed first draft. It also provides practical help on the ‘business side’ of being a writer and advises on the best path to publication.
