THE WTA self-publishing
WHY SHOULD I ENROL IN THE SELF-PUBLISHING COURSE?
I'm glad you asked!
If you've already written your book (or are confident about getting it finished) but need some help with actually getting your manuscript uploaded and out into the world, then this is the course for you.
This course gets straight to the self-publishing side of things, covering everything from formatting your book to getting the perfect cover, writing an amazing blurb and description, and uploading your book onto the self-publishing platform of your choice (we cover Amazon KDP and Smashwords, which publishes ebooks on the Nook, Kobo, and iBooks).
Watch my computer screen in real time as I take you through the whole self-publishing process, assuming you have a book ready to actually publish – if not, you might want to check out the Full Novel Writing Course.
You will come away with knowledge, skills, and detailed resources (including worksheets for every module) – everything you need to get your book self-published now. No more waiting!
And, most importantly, you'll have fun – because that's what self-publishing is all about (I promise!).
If you're not sure whether the Full Novel Writing Course or the Extensive Virtual Internship are the right courses for you, you can purchase this Self-publishing course to see what it's like. Then, if you want to upgrade to the main course, we'll give you £99 off the price of the Full Novel Writing Course or the Extensive Virtual Internship – essentially giving you this course for free. Not bad, right?
WHAT MAKES THIS COURSE DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?
Many online novel writing courses consist of a few videos or slideshows, some worksheets, and some quizzes. They include a lot of helpful information, and if you're able to learn that way, they're a great way of finding out how to write a book. If you're not into learning that way (if it reminds you of boardroom meeting presentations and revising for school exams, for instance), they might not be worth your time. In fact, you might need a different approach entirely.
A lot of us don't learn anything by simply reading something and taking notes – myself included. A lot of us learn by doing, by actually watching someone do something and then following suit. That's what I had in mind when I was creating this course. I was actually thinking of when you start a new job or go on a work placement, and you spend the first few days following people around and watching them do their jobs – shadowing them. If someone were to just hand you a long, boring manual, telling you to memorise it and get on with the job, you'd likely have a breakdown on the spot (at least, I would). Having someone physically show you how to do things is so much more effective.
It’s the same with writing and self-publishing a book. It suddenly becomes a hell of a lot less daunting if you can actually watch someone carrying out the whole process on video, with access to their computer screen, and with them explaining what they’re doing every step of the way.
Finally, as with all our courses, 5% of the profits that the WTA makes from this course will be donated to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library – which, every month, sends out free books to children aged 0-5 in the US, the UK, and several other countries.
SO, WHAT EXACTLY IS INCLUDED IN THIS COURSE?

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
The modules featured in this course are the same ones that are taught in the Full Novel Writing Course and the Extensive Novel Writing Virtual Internship – if you've already purchased either of these courses, do not enrol in this Self-publishing Course.
HOW IS THIS COURSE TAUGHT?
All Write Together Academy courses are housed over at our Teachable HQ. There you'll be able to access every one of our courses, as well as seeing all available modules for each course (and previewing some of them for free). All courses come in the form of pre-recorded videos, and each module comes with its own course notes or resources – usually PDF files. You get lifetime access to any course you purchase, and you can take the courses at your own pace, as none of it is live. While some modules include slideshows or other teaching aids, the majority of these modules feature videos of my (Jessica Grace Coleman's) computer screen – with my face in the corner – so you can follow everything I do. That way, I can show you what I mean rather than simply telling you, which I believe is far more effective.
WHAT'S THE PRICE?
The cost for this course is £99 – and remember, that includes lifetime access, all the worksheets and resources, an invitation to the private Write Together Academy Facebook group, and a Certificate of Completion. To purchase, just press the red button below or head over to the Write Together Academy Course HQ at Teachable!
WHAT IF I WANT TO LEARN MORE?
If you like the look of this course but feel you want to learn more, we also offer our Full Novel Writing Course for £1,499 or our Extensive Novel Writing Virtual Internship for £3,999. These involve far more modules, far more hours of content, and far more goodies!
If you do purchase the Self-publishing course and then decide you want to go ahead and do either the Full Course or the Extensive Virtual Internship, let us know and we'll give you £99 off whichever course you choose – essentially giving you the Self-publishing course for free.
I'M IN! WHAT DO I DO NOW?
