Do you need to write or compile content regularly?
Perhaps you send out regular newsletters or mailshots, run an eZine, or produce a newsletter, or publish a blog.
Whatever the reason for needing to write content on a regular basis, many people find it daunting. We are here to help you master this problem.
This workshop will show you how to:
During the workshop we’ll be doing practical exercises which will enable you to write real content that you can use the very same day. Regardless of the purpose you write for this workshop will give you the tools to create content.
You will leave with a practical handbook that will act as a refresher for the techniques we use on the day, and as a blueprint for further methods you can explore after the workshop is over.
This course isn’t about turning you into a full-time professional copywriter, it’s about helping you to manage the business writing that’s essential in our modern information-driven age, and to make it easy to write large amounts of quality content in focussed sessions. Get a lot done in a short space of time, so you can get on with the many other aspects of your work, and life.
This highly practical, hands on, 2-hour course is suitable for:
Courses run regularly, and if you buy now but you can’t see a date, we’ll arrange a convenient date in the next 6 weeks – even if it’s only you, we’ll still run the workshop!
Includes a copy of Build Your Own Idea Factory by David Norrington – a reference source for idea generation that you can dip into any time you like.
We have various dates, just buy now, and we will arrange a date to suit you.
Our standard book cover package includes the use of stock images from an extensive library containing millions of images. However, there will be times when we simply can’t find an image that meets the needs of your cover. This is especially the case for children’s books and YA titles where you may be looking for images of your characters and settings that are unique. It may also be the case for business books where you have a model to explain, or you require specific diagrams.
We have a bank of talented professional illustrators who can offer bespoke illustrations for your cover. We complete a specification and design, and offer it to appropriate illustrators to see if they are available, can deliver the images on time, and are able to create the image you imagine.
Copyright of the image belongs to the author, although some artists may request a credit in the book, and the right to use the image for non-commercial portfolio purposes. They may require a financial consideration if you don’t want to allow this. We can help you, if you find copyright confusing or you are unfamiliar with the subject. It need not be daunting once it’s explained.
This service includes advice, guidance, and liaison with the illustrator of your choice to ensure that the work produced is suitable for your book cover design.
We have spoken to authors at all stages in the book writing process. We know what it’s like to be on your journey – all of our coaches and mentors are published authors with experience of the process of getting from an idea to a finished book.
This initial consultation session can be undertaken over the phone, on Skype, or in person at our offices in Cardiff. In it you can talk with someone who is knowledgeable, approachable, and understanding of your situation.
The process is as follows:
What happens next?
For some people this one-off consultation is enough to answer your questions, or to develop an idea.
For others more coaching may be requested, or there may be a need for additional training or information. If your coach or mentor is unable to immediately answer a question they will follow up with the information you want.
We can offer you a one-time setup on more than 250 platforms. This is not an annual charge, it’s a one-time setup fee.
We feed your book and the relevant metadata to the following sites (many of which push your book out to further sites).
We will take your formatted ePUB file, and ensure that we collect all of the metadata required to distribute your book worldwide.
