Working with Indie Authors

Find Clients. Understand Their Needs. Work Better Together.

You’ll come out of this interactive course with an understanding of what indie authors need from you, some new ideas for business practices and marketing, and a bunch of templates you can use to make your work even more efficient.

This course is always available as a self-paced course, and it’s also run periodically with instructor-led cohorts.

Editing Memoir

Dive deep into the genre in this interactive course.

This four-week course will help you better understand memoir and its readers’ expectations. It will give you tools and techniques to help you figure out what a specific manuscript needs, and how you can address those needs to make it even more compelling to its readers.

This course is run periodically with instructor-led cohorts.

Exploring “Passive” Income

We’ll discuss what “passive” means in this context, consider some different aspects of production and marketing, and go through a series of exercises that can help you come up with ideas for what you could create.
