So if you've always wanted to get published, now is the time to realise that goal. This is especially true since we offer the program as an online writing course, which makes life convenient for you.
Just look at the subjects we cover: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, autobiography (and biography). Plus you can study screenplays/screenwriting, and the genres of your choice, such as crime, horror or science fiction. What a great range!
It could be the start of a whole new career - and certainly
the start of a new and different life for you. Once you've
got published, it's easier to get other work into print.
Publishers look at your proposals with more interest.
Plus you get more self-respect, and the admiration of others who would like to be in your position.
|What could be more exciting than opening a letter from a publisher, and reading the amazing news - that your work has been accepted, and will appear in print?
But how easy is it to get published? And will the creative writing course help?
Well, there are more books and publications being published all the time - so there is a demand for your writing. But on the other hand, there is more competition from other would-be writers.
Also, you have to know how to present material that will attract the publishers' eye. Few writers have that instinct - and we at the Blackford Centre can teach it.
So, enrolling on the course gives you a real advantage over other creative writers.
We reveal how to find out what publishers want. And we show you how to set out your proposal in such a beguiling manner that the publisher is virtually forced to say 'Yes' to you.
