WPGA - WRITE OF PASSAGE GROWTH ACADEMY

With over 20 years experience teaching literacy and eight published books to date, I am so looking forward to sharing some of my knowledge with you and helping you to really develop your own writing skills. I have written for numerous business and educational organisations, including internationally... as far afield as China!

I aim to give you a really personal service and am always on-hand to answer any questions you may have throughout your writing journey. However, I must warn you that writing a book takes commitment. There is no magic wand (despite what some may claim) and it is highly unlikely that you will write your book in a weekend (as others have claimed!) but, if you are prepared to put in the time and effort, holding your first published book in your hand really is the most wonderful feeling and will give you a sense of achievement like no other.

Choose the course that best suits your needs - I am always happy to answer any queries.

To enrol on any of the courses send me a 

DM on FB @karenstanleyauthor or 

email to [email protected] 

so that we can discuss the best way forward for you and your work....
