FREE online creative writing course on How to Write a Book

Turn your budding idea into a bestselling story with our FREE book writing course

When it comes to getting your book published, a good story is just the beginning. Publishers use a proven formula to decide whether a script can become a successful book or not, and if you don’t nail that formula, it doesn’t matter how great your book idea is – your script is out the door.

You’ve got to pick the right idea, understand your genre and target a flourishing market. You’ve got to connect with your target audience, create life-like characters and structure your story in a way that keeps readers turning page after page.

This course bundle is designed to empower you to do it all – and get it right the first time. Each lesson covers core skills and concepts involved in the creative writing process, so you can avoid costly writing mistakes and create a practical roadmap for completing your manuscript.

In other words, if you want to learn how to write a book like a professional – and do it on your own terms – this course is for you!

What other people say about us


Mary Allen

Children's Author

These courses offer a comprehensive and engaging path for the journey of a writer from the conception of an idea to the publishing of a book. It is very useful to have all aspects tied together. Both fiction and non-fiction are examined, which is effective as there can be an emphasis on fiction alone. The explanations and examples would engender confidence in those who might feel strongly about writing but hesitate to start.


Great content. I'm loving the quality of information and finding myself much more inspired. The range of tools are fantastic and the handouts alone would be great value at the price. After going through the planning phase I have at least 10 more ideas, plus I now have an understanding of effective outlining. Highly recommend this to anyone.
