Learn to Create and Publish your Own Work

Do You Want to Publish A Book?

Electronic or Print

The world of publishing has changed over the past few years – self publishing is now a respected way to publish that book or other work you have hidden in the bottom of your desk drawer.

It is difficult to make publishers sit up and notice you – even if your work is good and unsolicited manuscripts are often just left on the reject pile without so much as a glance. Self-publishing not only assures that your work is out in reader-land it is also quite cheap to do especially if you decide to just publish as an ebook. It is also quite easy, once you know how, to publish your work as a hard cover book – this is a more expensive option but some writers like to see that book in their hand.

If you would love to publish your own work but lack the confidence, insights and experience, join us and learn from us with this Certificate in Publishing. Learn all about the publishing world and how to go about publishing your own work.
