See What Students Say

“I derive a great enjoyment from my steady, weekly job as Editor of The Woman’s Page for the Jewish Tribune. I definitely credit my success to this course – not only because it accommodated my specific writing needs, but because of the constant encouragement to write and sell my work.”
D Deutsch


“The course has helped me immensely, both in raising my confidence and in teaching the essential skills of marketing and layout. Now half way through my course I have earned around £500 and I’m in negotiation with Sheldon Press about a possible acceptance of a non-fiction book on adoption.”
K Robinson


“I think one of the best things about this course is that it takes the mystery out of getting published. Up until this course I thought that those people getting published were somehow ‘in the know’. But this course has shown that successful writing can be quite a forensic exercise – accurate market research, a professional approach to editors, hard work and some inspiration.”
K Knight


“I signed up for this course looking for a hobby for my retirement, but it has become a most enjoyable and profitable occupation.”
R White


“I would definitely recommend this course to other people, as I have enjoyed my experience. I have now turned my writing from a hobby into something I can earn money from.”
K Griffin


“This course is very informative and I’m so glad I decided to enrol. It has made all the difference to my aspirations as a writer. Quite simply, I failed miserably in the past. Since studying the course I have had many successes.”
D Cullen
