It was very clear to follow and provided the right amount of information without being overwhelming or confusing. It answered a lot of questions I had on how to get started and how to promote my writing once I start. It also made the whole idea of writing for profit seem a lot less daunting than I originally thought. Excellent course for beginner writers!

I have paid for the course and have received the payment confirmation, but I have not received an email giving me all the course information.  What should I do?

The course information email often takes up to ten minutes to be sent through.  If it has taken longer than ten minutes, check your spam folder. 

If the course information isn’t in your spam folder, did you uncheck the ‘keep me up to date with news and offers when you went through the checkout? If you did uncheck this box – it stops the automatic email being sent to your inbox.  Legally, we can’t send you emails unless you are one of our subscribers. Don’t worry, this can be easily fixed – just email with the subject line: ADD ME AS COPY THAT SUBSCRIBER.  We will then add you manually so you can receive the course welcome email.  You can unsubscribe any time after that.
