Are you READY to take your shot?


Join our 2022 cohort of career-driven writers working towards professional publishing goals. By the end of this ten-month program, each writer will have received training and tools to prepare their ready and tested manuscripts for submission to decision makers in the publishing industry. In order to best serve our students, we are limiting enrollment on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the cohort is full, waitlisted students may opt for our video-only access class and will receive priority for the following cohort.

Take Advantage of First Year Pricing


Every member of our Faculty and Administration is a publishing industry veteran. But since this is our first year launching a complete academy, we're offering a pricing structure well below market value. Prices will go up next year.
