During the first lockdown of 2020, I happened to come across an advert via Facebook which was advertising courses at a discounted price. A particular subject caught my eye – Writing Books for Children Diploma and the price had been reduced from £199 to just £25, which I thought was too good of an opportunity to miss, as I was then in the process of writing a childrens book, so I immediately signed up. The company was the Centre of Excellence and they have courses for a wide range of subjects and they still have many courses at a discounted price!
The process was very straight forward and before long I was able to start with this course. So I thought it might be a good idea to share my experience with you, which means that I will be sharing my work and the feedback that I receive with the hope that it will inspire any would-be writers out there to have a go themselves.
I have to admit that whilst I started during the first lockdown, I didn’t get very far as, ironically, I was working on my first children’s book (which is due to be published this year), but now we are in lockdown three, I am hoping to finish this course.
So come along on this journey with me, we can all learn together and you never know, you could be the next Enid Blyton or J. K. Rowling!
