Online Creative Writing Courses from Industry Experts

Empower yourself with the knowledge and tools you need to write a book and become a published author

Aspiring authors, we’ll let you in on a secret. In the publishing industry, knowledge is power. 

It can feel impossible to turn your idea into a story without someone who has it in your corner. From effective time management strategies for meeting manuscript deadlines to tips for negotiating with editors, agents, and publishers, an insider’s knowledge and experience can help you write better, work smarter and reach your publishing goals faster. Writing skills aside, you’re up against the industry’s many idiosyncrasies and traps, which can only be learned through experience – and too often hold new entrants back from publishing successfully.

Insider knowledge is one of the last things you’ll never find on Google. But you can find it here.

Our mission is to bridge the knowledge gaps between great ideas and incredible books that have long held aspiring authors back

Why take an Insider Experts creative writing course?

Become a Better Writer

Creativity is often considered a ‘blessing’ that we’re lucky to have. But while creative writers might be ‘gifted’ with lots of ideas, turning those into meaningful, marketable and profitable works of literature is a hard-earned skill. Our online creative courses will help you master it, including understanding theme and genre, using narrative structure, and creating life-like characters.

An Expert in Your Corner

Whether you’re at square one or a published author already, this industry is complex and producing a manuscript – let alone getting it published – is daunting. We’ll guide you through every step of the process from idea to promotion, so you can avoid costly mistakes, make better decisions and gain better opportunities for your book.

Better Outcomes for Your Book

Knowing your rights and being confident in negotiations with publishers and agents make a huge difference to your outcomes. Authors get better terms and conditions and better royalty payments when they do. Our courses deep-dive into these publishing industry pain points to help you navigate them with ease, from negotiating a great deal to marketing to reach your target audience.
