Being a writer today is hard.
You not only have to write, but you have to do everything related to publishing, too. You have to write book proposals and synopses. You have to build your platform and network. You have to find an agent and then a publisher. Then, when your book finally is published, you have to do marketing and P.R.
And that’s just if you go the traditional publishing route. If you self-publish, it’s even more work.
How do you make it as a writer? How do you write the things you want, make the living you want, and manage the chaos of the publish industry at the same time?
Here’s How It Works
Start by Getting the Structure to Write Something You Love
This isn’t just theory. You’ll start right at the beginning, writing a new short story, creative essay, or article.
Then, Get the Feedback to Make it Better
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.
Next Gather Your Cartel
A Cartel is an agreement among competitors. Instead of fighting with other writers over an audience, a Cartel helps its members create an even larger audience. In other words, your Cartel becomes your team.
We'll Show You How to Publish
Learn what it takes to send your best writing out into the world so that it can connect with your ideal readers.
Finally, Launch It With Your New Cartel
We’ll show you the process to Launch your writing successfully into the world again and again, so that when you’re ready to publish a novel or nonfiction book, you’re ready!

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. Write to Publish 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.”Staci Trolio, Bestselling Author
“Write to Publish 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.”Kathy Pooler, Memoirist

Frequently Asked Questions
When does the program begin?
Unlike many online courses, Write to Publish has an official start and end date so that we can all stay together as we go through the process of learning, writing, and publishing together. 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.
This semester officially begins on April 8 and ends with your published writing piece on June 3! However, as soon as you sign up, we’ll guide you through the preparation process, helping you build the foundation of your publishing success.
How many hours per week does the program require?
Writers usually spend between three to six hours per week going through the course material, completing assignments, and connecting with their fellow writers. Compared to our 100 Day Book Program, that’s less than half of the time requirement.
Every Monday, you’ll receive a set of lessons and an assignment. You’ll spend about four to six hours throughout the week reviewing the lessons and completing the assignment. After eight weeks at this pace, you’ll have published your writing.
I haven't finished a book yet. Is this course open to people who are just getting started?
If you’re in the middle of a book—or even still at the beginning—that’s great! You are the perfect person to join this program and get the tools you need to be successful as a writer.
What if I write nonfiction?
This program is available to both fiction AND nonfiction writers. We’ve helped thousands of authors of both fiction and nonfiction publish their writing. We would love to help you too!
What if don't live in the United States?
When do the payments end?
We’ve tried to make this program affordable by breaking up the full price of the program into 12 payments that you pay once a month over 12 months.
You can also choose to save 20 percent by paying for the program in full. See the pricing section above for details.
