Writing is the perfect portable career. It is an invaluable skill for anyone who requires an extra source of income or a hobby with earning potential. Today so many people move around the country or the world. Their experiences make great reading and are a constant source of inspiration.

This eight part course will give you hands-on learning about far more than just the mechanics of writing. You will also learn how to find the markets that are out there and how to make the editors say ‘yes’.


  • How to find inspiration for your articles and writing
  • How to write something that editors want
  • The key to overcoming writer’s block
  • Where to look for opportunities and how to approach marketing
  • What to do when faced with rejection
  • What to do once you’re established
  • Discover these secrets and more from a wordsmith who has been a poet, short story writer, student, teacher, journalist, publisher, editor, presenter and copywriter.

Author: Jo Parfitt

I have run my own business since I was 25, largely because I am a serial entrepreneur and cannot survive without the variety provided by being self-employed. After 10 years living and working abroad, we returned to England in 1997 and Summertime Publishing was born. In 2005 we moved to The Hague, then to Malaysia in 2014 and now back in the Netherlands. I have developed a business based on writing, publishing, mentoring and teaching what I know. I know how to write, how to publish, how to run a business despite international moves, how to network and how to live abroad. I find countless opportunities to change lives through my writing, teaching, speaking and mentoring and love nothing more than to 'share what I know to help others to grow'.
