Getting published today is hard.
Writing is hard enough. But now, even if you publish with a major publisher, you’re still expected to market your books, too.
It’s exhausting to even think about.
On top of that, there are so many books being published that it’s easy for your writing to get lost in the noise.
How do you get publishers to take notice?
How do you get people to actually read your book when it comes out?
Is it really possible to make it as a writer today?
Here’s How It Works
We'll Show the Ins and Outs of Publishing
Whether you want to go with traditional publishing or self-publishing, we’ll show you what it takes to get your best writing out into the world.
Write Something You Love
Writers today can’t just focus on writing OR publishing. We have to focus on BOTH. That’s why we’ll start by writing something you can be proud of.
Get the Feedback to Make Your Writing PUBLISHABLE
Everyone needs feedback on their writing, whether you’re Stephen King or Joe Bunting, and the first place to get feedback is among your fellow writers.

What Our Students Are Saying
A proven track record of writers succeeding.
“I used to dream of being the next J. K. Rowling. Reality check—the fiction business isn’t magical; it’s hard work. Foundations of Publishing makes it easier. In addition to the rich course material, I had the support of a network of my fellow students, or the Cartel, and my strongest supporter was founder Joe Bunting.”
“Foundations of Publishing helped me build upon what I had already started with the publication of my memoir. I was able to access the course material and forum activities in my own time. I also feel I have made enough meaningful connections with classmates to hop on board at any time. I am very happy I took the plunge when reason would have cautioned me to not take on one more thing.”

Frequently Asked Questions
When does the program begin?
Foundations of Publishing is a self-guided course, and you can start it as soon as you sign up. One of the best parts of this program is that you will be building connections with other writers as you go through the program with them.
How many hours per week does the program require?
Since this program is self-guided, how much time you spend a week is up to you. You have a year’s worth of access to the course lessons and The Write Practice Pro workshops.
