Who should take this course?

If you’re currently writing a novel or memoir and want to be ready for the next step, then this course is for you. Or, perhaps you’ve finished your book and need guidance in pitching to agents and publishers. It’s for you too. Author Natasha Lester is standing by right NOW to walk you through a 10-step process to successfully pitch your book to agents and publishers. These steps have been developed from Natasha’s own experiences in successfully pitching to and working with agents and publishers over the last five years. It’s good stuff. Natasha is author of three books, the most recent of which resulted in a bidding frenzy between four major publishers. (Note: This course focuses on pitching fiction and memoir – authors of self-help, how-to or business books may find this course unsuitable.)
“It was one of the most valuable courses I have done. I have found all four writing courses I have done with the AWC absolutely amazing and worthwhile, and wish I had invested in them earlier.”

– Ben Princi
