We’re back. You know the saying, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder?” You must be very fond of us right now! Not really funny, but we’ve been busy working on Your Literary Prose and during the past several months we have been busy launching a new joint venture program to assist writers, authors, and speakers along their journey of publishing their book. Your Literary Prose has teamed up with Joyce Glass, The Write Coach, to bring to you The Write Academy.
What is The Write Academy?
About 15 months ago, Colleen and Joyce met each other through SPEAK, a professional speaking program. After the gals met they decided to connect via internet and learn about each other. After speaking a few times and learning about one another, they clicked and knew each of us could bring different things to the table and something great could come from working together to offer writers. That’s how The Write Academy was formed.
But what is The Write Academy?
The Write Academy is a subscription-based program guiding writers through the entire process of publishing. During the past year Colleen, Joyce, and I put our heads together and used our 25-plus years of business experience working with authors, speakers, writers, and business owners and came up with a way to help people write their book in their own time with the tools to do it correctly with guidance from us. What came out of these many meetings is The Write Academy Success Path. The Success Path divides the process of writing a book into four systems: Clarify, Create, Complete, and Connect. Every step of the publishing process can be placed into one of these four areas.
The Write Academy Has It All
The Write Academy includes monthly training from the team, your experts. Each month focuses on one area of the Success Path and goes deeper into the steps included in that area. For example, we teach our members how to develop their voice, how to self-edit and the difference between self-editing and professional editing, how you can organize your book and its chapters, and more.
How’s your grammar? Each month we add a Grammar Time lesson. For those who haven’t paid attention to grammar in a few years, this is a refresher in the details we may have forgotten or don’t think about so we shed a little light to help improve writing skills. .
In addition to our training, members of The Write Academy receive an hour-long call with the whole team.It’s your time! Join our Zoom call and ask questions, share successes and concerns. The Write Academy Team, Peter, Colleen, and Joyce, are experts at what they do; ask away. Our goal is to help you meet your dream of published author.
Looking for a community of like-minded people? In our Facebook community members have the opportunity to share their work with each other, develop relationships, ask questions, and much more. You never know what can happen.
