GRAB YOURSELF A COFFEE, AND TAKE A LOOK AT OUR WORK

We offer ground breaking, practical training in small groups, which focuses on the real day-to-day demands of being a successful author, artist or vlogger. The aim is to help creative individuals – working in partnership with publishers and agents – to shape their careers more proactively than ever before.

We are not offering the old “hit and run” style of training. All our courses offer a high level of interaction between trainer and author, with every activity leading to the author walking away with a ready-to-implement action-plan.
