“The feedback has been wonderful. I am receiving messages from people on my Instagram telling me they bought my book and their child loves it. Even a therapeutic coach bought one for a girl she was working with! It’s so amazing seeing young children holding my book and knowing they have enjoyed it.”

Abigail Groves

Author of Abigail’s World

“What an amazing feeling to hold my first published book in my hands!

There is no way I would have made it this far without the industry knowledge and writing tips I learned in the ‘Write Storybooks for Children’ course.

I am so grateful for this experience!”

Kimberly Waltman

Author of 'Bright or Blue'

“Write Story Books For Children was a huge help and inspiration when I first started writing.

I thought the course was so well constructed and so easy to take in. I had done some writing courses prior to this one and they left me feeling a little deflated. None were as informative or as easy to digest as this one.

This course was surprising. It was beautifully designed, simple just very well put together. It was insightful and to-the-point, no jargon, honestly-written, and above all, very, very helpful! I went back to the course modules several times over the years as a source of support.”

Johanna Handley

Author of 'The Burning of Juniper Slaide'

“The course was set out into modules, which helped you feel like you were achieving throughout the course. The content was clearly written and provided useful tips without patronising. Having worked in on-line education and training for a number of years, I would definitely recommend the course.”
