“This course exceeded my expectations. It was very in depth, which is great and there is so much information.
I will need to keep re-visiting the material when I am in the position of dealing with the actual publishing process of
my book. I do believe the advice and expertise will be very valuable. I appreciate all this course has to offer.”

If you want to submit your novel or memoir or non-fiction book to a publisher, or to self-publish as an indie author, it pays to know how the business works.
Do you know:
This self-paced course consists of five modules. It’s ideal if you spread your learning over five weeks – digesting one module per week. Or you can power through it all in one go – that’s the beauty of a self-paced course!
In each module – mainly through audio and some handouts, as well as links to resources – you will learn about a different part of the publishing business, from the overall legal framework to the nitty-gritty of negotiating with a publisher.
Inside Publishing: What You Need to Know to Get Published concentrates on helping you understand how publishing works, and how to get your book published.
It doesn’t go into detail about how to prepare a submission or how to pitch your novel – or how to write. If you are confident that you understand how publishing works, you’ve finished your umpteenth draft and you just want to know how to get a publisher to read your manuscript, then you may prefer these courses:
“If you're serious about publishing, do the course, particularly as you can go back and access
the more technical aspects at the appropriate time. Thank you Australian Writers' Centre.”
