You have a book you want to write . . . what happens now?

Writing, however, is one of those things that looks and sounds easier than it is. It can be overwhelming just thinking about where to start.  Once you start, what happens next? How can you become the author you want to be on top of everything else?

What you are struggling with is exactly why we created this course. There are plenty of writing courses that will get you writing a book quickly.  We help you create the framework to write your best book, not just any book.  This course is about how to write.

Here’s how one of our authors put it:

“The Journey Institute Writer’s Bootcamp gave me a highly flexible, reusable scaffolding for moving from ideas to completed chapters. Never cumbersome or overly rigid, each step built on the last until my own experience showed me I could do this after all!”

– Peggy
