Writing for Profit

Do you have a flair for writing and want to use your talent to earn an income? Award-winning author of both fiction and non-fiction, Stella, will help you discover how to turn your dreams into money-making reality. We will examine many avenues, some you might not have considered including blogging, magazine articles, novels and non-fiction books! We also look at selling your work and entering into contracts with publishers.

Agenda:

Week 1:

  • Blogging – setting up a blog, how to make money from blogging.
  • Social platforms (e.g. blogs, facebook and twitter) – why they matter so much.
  • Writing for magazines and ezines – how to write articles that fit the market, and how to pitch your idea to a publisher.
  • The business side of getting published – tax invoices, ABNs and GST.

Week 2:

  • Novels – writing tips, finding a publisher, writing an eye-catching synopsis.
  • Non-fiction books – studying the market, writing an effective proposal.
  • Publishing contracts – what can you expect?
  • The publishing process – what happens after you sign that book deal?
  • Self-publishing (printed books and ebooks) – what you need to consider

If there is a particular magazine you would like to write for, please bring a copy with you.

About the Tutor:

"My workshops differ from most writing classes as I don’t just teach you how to write, I also like to explain what comes next... Which publisher should you approach? How do you go about it? What happens when you’re offered a contract?

As an author of more than 40 books, and having written for both adults and young people, I have also been running classes at SGSCC for over 7 years. More recently I have also written a new 10-book children’s fiction series – Hopeless Heroes – a humorous take on Greek mythology, and book 1 “Tim Baker and the Ancient Curse” was recently launched in London."
