You now have an amazing blog – packed full of interesting travel articles, beautiful photography and videos that transport your readers around the globe. But where are you getting your readers from? Social media is an incredibly powerful tool in exposing your work to an interested audience but how do you get your blog in front of them? The Travel Blogging Course guides you through the importance of social media, how to create a strategy that fits your needs, outlines the social networking platforms so that you can make an informed decision on the ones to concentrate on, and how to go about using social bookmarking sites.

The Travel Blogging Course makes it easy with lists of all the essentials to take, whether you’re travelling alone or with children. Listing clothes, medical supplies, items for children or babies, and any tech you’ll need. If it’s on the list – take it. If it’s not – do you REALLY need to bring it?

3. Creative Writing: Test Your Imagination and Stretch Your Writing Skills

Creative writing covers a wide variety of forms; simply, its purpose is to enable you to express, emotions, thoughts and feelings using the written word. If you would like to improve your writing skills, to try out new techniques in a variety of writing styles and to be able to create compelling works of fiction, then this course will enable you to do just that.

There are so many opportunities for writers in this digital age and the world of publishing has evolved greatly over the last few years. Publishing is now accessible to all who have a good grasp of the English language and because the world is now a predominantly much smaller place through the rise of the digital era, it is possible to become published in many English speaking countries.

This course however does not just concentrate on publishing but on the skills required that will elevate your writing abilities to the dizzy heights of professionalism. There is pleasure in the written word, creating imaginary plots and forming descriptive scenes filled with vibrancy and colour will satisfy the need to create. The knowledge of how to craft a captivating short story and to possess the ability to craft larger than life characters will stimulate those creative juices.

If you choose the road towards publication, understand that it can be a long but enjoyable route towards success, while you absorb the craft and incorporate it into your own writing studies. Think of this learning curve as an apprenticeship as you polish and hone the skills that will provide an outlet for your creative thoughts and that could provide you with the skills to become a published writer.

While the emphasis is on enjoyment, the projects within will test your imagination and stretch your writing skills, so that you learn steadily and consistently throughout.

4. Travel Writing Business: Learn The Different Aspects Travel Writing

The course starts you off with the basics and progresses you to the point at which you are capable of creating work of your own in this genre. You will be introduced to travel writing, guided you through the different aspects involved, and all the questions you have will be answered along the way.

Following an introduction to the course, and what to expect from it, the Travel Writing Business Course begins by explaining what travel writing really is (such as books, guides, brochures and more) and providing examples of some famous writers. This module then moves onto explain the necessary skills needed to succeed and how this course will help you to get there.

To increase your self-awareness and know your travel personality, which in turn will help your writing, the second module provides a short quiz. Here you will also be exposed to the different specialisms of travel writing, so you can understand which market you are planning to cater for, and the importance of knowing this.

Module 3 of the Travel Writing Business Course discusses how travel magazines function and operate and then moves on to the importance of researching the area you intend to travel to and write about, including any special features of your destination. It is likely that you will take photographs as a visual aid to your travel literature, so the basic knowhow of photography is covered here also.

To get the most from your trips, becoming an expert traveller is important to this career choice. Module 4 talks you through everything that you need in order to travel to different places: financial resources, bookings at motels and hotels, food, clothing, any special equipment and more. Also included here is the way in which you travel, such as how to create a detailed itinerary and the pros and cons of both group and solo travel. Without funding, you aren’t going anywhere, so this module also discusses the various ways in which you can acquire funding, if your personal resources will not cover the expense.

The fifth module is all about writing. Along with discussing the importance of strong writing skills, students are informed of several drills and skills pertaining to travel writing. Also here students learn about several basic rules of writing travel literature, such as ‘show but don’t tell’, knowing one’s transitions, knowing the characters, and having something to set them apart from the rest.

Once you have finished your travels and written some interesting and insightful work, module 6 of the Travel Writing Business Course will guide you in how to share and sell your work. It also advises you on how to get to know the editors whom you’re going to be working with to publish the travel literature.

The final module of the course aims to leave you with some inspiration for your own work, in the form of samples of important travel literature, which are discussed and dissected, to understand just what makes them stand out. Also discussed here is how and why the experiences of travel writers are usually very different from the experiences of an average individual.

Who would benefit from the course?

Designed for those interested in the field of professional travel writing or even those who would just like to write better journals of their travels for themselves, friends, and family, the Travel Writing Business Course will give you everything you need to produce interesting and entertaining writing.

This said, anyone who is going travelling and wishes to improve their journal or blog entries, and also get more from their trip, will find a lot of useful and inspiring information here.

5. Successful Self-Publishing: Learn The Basics Of Self-Publishing

You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.

The Successful Self-Publishing Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.

With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.

Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered.

We are taught the metaphor ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but when it comes to books – we do. When confronted by a wall or screen of book covers and all you have to go off, as a customer, is a title and a cover, you will find yourself quickly judging covers and titles – giving just seconds to each. From this course, you will learn the do’s and don’ts of book cover design, from colour theory, graphics and images to fonts, copy placement, formatting and reproduction, to ensure yours is the cover that stands out and the book that gets bought. Even if you intend to commission a designer to do the work for you this essential knowledge will give you everything you need to understand what is needed and to get the cover you want.

With your files ready and book complete you need to understand the process of printing the finished work. The Successful Self-Publishing Course walks you through production, including the different printing methods available and how to convert your book into an eBook. It also stresses the importance of proofreading, how to proofread, and the common conventions used by proofreaders, should you choose to hire one.

Where many self-publishers fail is through not fully understanding distribution, because it doesn’t matter how good your book is, if no one can buy it you’re not going to make any money and it’ll be back to the 9-5. This course provides the knowledge you need to successfully get your book into bookshops, work with distributors and wholesalers, and price your book effectively for both printed and eBook versions.

You’ve published a book – don’t forget to tell people about it! Though before you publish, you need to have a marketing plan in place that will fit the content of your book. You’ll learn how to make sure your book is accurately represented in online bookstores and how to use tools such as social media, YouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book. You’ll also discover how to carry your marketing efforts on after publishing and through to your second book.

Who would benefit from this course?

You’ve written, or are in the process of writing, a book and want to publish it yourself, rather than work rely on a publisher, what do you do? This course outlines all the tasks involved and the skills needed to succeed in self-publishing a book.

If you’re intending on becoming a publisher yourself, the Successful Self-Publishing Course provides a comprehensive overview of the entire process – giving you a great foundational knowledge to build upon with further, degree-level education.

You now have an amazing blog – packed full of interesting travel articles, beautiful photography and videos that transport your readers around the globe. But where are you getting your readers from? Social media is an incredibly powerful tool in exposing your work to an interested audience but how do you get your blog in front of them? The Travel Blogging Course guides you through the importance of social media, how to create a strategy that fits your needs, outlines the social networking platforms so that you can make an informed decision on the ones to concentrate on, and how to go about using social bookmarking sites.

Maybe your wish in taking this course is to document your travels for yourself but you may want to turn it into a business – producing an additional or sole income. This course will help you to do that.

Listing clothes, medical supplies, items for children or babies, and any tech you’ll need. If it’s on the list – take it. If it’s not – do you REALLY need to bring it?

3. Creative Writing: Test Your Imagination and Stretch Your Writing Skills

Creative writing covers a wide variety of forms; simply, its purpose is to enable you to express, emotions, thoughts and feelings using the written word. If you would like to improve your writing skills, to try out new techniques in a variety of writing styles and to be able to create compelling works of fiction, then this course will enable you to do just that.

There are so many opportunities for writers in this digital age and the world of publishing has evolved greatly over the last few years. Publishing is now accessible to all who have a good grasp of the English language and because the world is now a predominantly much smaller place through the rise of the digital era, it is possible to become published in many English speaking countries.

This course however does not just concentrate on publishing but on the skills required that will elevate your writing abilities to the dizzy heights of professionalism. There is pleasure in the written word, creating imaginary plots and forming descriptive scenes filled with vibrancy and colour will satisfy the need to create. The knowledge of how to craft a captivating short story and to possess the ability to craft larger than life characters will stimulate those creative juices.

If you choose the road towards publication, understand that it can be a long but enjoyable route towards success, while you absorb the craft and incorporate it into your own writing studies. Think of this learning curve as an apprenticeship as you polish and hone the skills that will provide an outlet for your creative thoughts and that could provide you with the skills to become a published writer.

While the emphasis is on enjoyment, the projects within will test your imagination and stretch your writing skills, so that you learn steadily and consistently throughout.

4. Travel Writing Business: Learn The Different Aspects Travel Writing

The course starts you off with the basics and progresses you to the point at which you are capable of creating work of your own in this genre. You will be introduced to travel writing, guided you through the different aspects involved, and all the questions you have will be answered along the way.

Following an introduction to the course, and what to expect from it, the Travel Writing Business Course begins by explaining what travel writing really is (such as books, guides, brochures and more) and providing examples of some famous writers. This module then moves onto explain the necessary skills needed to succeed and how this course will help you to get there.

To increase your self-awareness and know your travel personality, which in turn will help your writing, the second module provides a short quiz. Here you will also be exposed to the different specialisms of travel writing, so you can understand which market you are planning to cater for, and the importance of knowing this.

Module 3 of the Travel Writing Business Course discusses how travel magazines function and operate and then moves on to the importance of researching the area you intend to travel to and write about, including any special features of your destination. It is likely that you will take photographs as a visual aid to your travel literature, so the basic knowhow of photography is covered here also.

To get the most from your trips, becoming an expert traveller is important to this career choice. Module 4 talks you through everything that you need in order to travel to different places: financial resources, bookings at motels and hotels, food, clothing, any special equipment and more. Also included here is the way in which you travel, such as how to create a detailed itinerary and the pros and cons of both group and solo travel. Without funding, you aren’t going anywhere, so this module also discusses the various ways in which you can acquire funding, if your personal resources will not cover the expense.

The fifth module is all about writing. Along with discussing the importance of strong writing skills, students are informed of several drills and skills pertaining to travel writing. Also here students learn about several basic rules of writing travel literature, such as ‘show but don’t tell’, knowing one’s transitions, knowing the characters, and having something to set them apart from the rest.

Once you have finished your travels and written some interesting and insightful work, module 6 of the Travel Writing Business Course will guide you in how to share and sell your work. It also advises you on how to get to know the editors whom you’re going to be working with to publish the travel literature.

The final module of the course aims to leave you with some inspiration for your own work, in the form of samples of important travel literature, which are discussed and dissected, to understand just what makes them stand out. Also discussed here is how and why the experiences of travel writers are usually very different from the experiences of an average individual.

Who would benefit from the course?

Designed for those interested in the field of professional travel writing or even those who would just like to write better journals of their travels for themselves, friends, and family, the Travel Writing Business Course will give you everything you need to produce interesting and entertaining writing.

This said, anyone who is going travelling and wishes to improve their journal or blog entries, and also get more from their trip, will find a lot of useful and inspiring information here.

5. Successful Self-Publishing: Learn The Basics Of Self-Publishing

You’ve got a great idea for a book and you’ve started putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys) or you may have already finished it! How will you get it out into the world? You could hire a traditional publisher but you’ll lose creative control and royalties can be 7-25% per book sold (with 25% being on the incredibly generous end) or you can self-publish, keep total creative control and earn up to 70% of the royalties of each book. Tempted? Take this course and you’ll learn the skills needed in self-publishing your book – cover design and layout, proofing, publishing, distributing, and marketing.

The Successful Self-Publishing Course begins by guiding you through the basics of self-publishing. You’ll quickly get answers to the big questions, such as why you should self- publish and the benefits of doing so and, conversely, reasons self-publishing may not be for you. There are legal obligations you need to fulfil and to self-publish requires money, the course will talk you through what to expect in both these areas.

With your book written and your working title in place. This course will show you the process of finessing the details, large and small, to get your text ready for publication. You’ll learn the dos and don’ts of titling your book and what to include in your cover text, how to self-edit or hire and work with an editor, how to prepare your text for the layout process, and what the established conventions that you should use in book anatomy, are.

Formatting should be invisible, unnoticed by the reader, but done poorly and inconsistently and the smallest of errors will pull your readers from the story, ruining the content of your work. You’ll learn how to use layout to enable your content to flow – with proper use of book sizing, page layout, fonts, spacing and alignment of text. Formatting for eBooks is also covered.

We are taught the metaphor ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but when it comes to books – we do. When confronted by a wall or screen of book covers and all you have to go off, as a customer, is a title and a cover, you will find yourself quickly judging covers and titles – giving just seconds to each. From this course, you will learn the do’s and don’ts of book cover design, from colour theory, graphics and images to fonts, copy placement, formatting and reproduction, to ensure yours is the cover that stands out and the book that gets bought. Even if you intend to commission a designer to do the work for you this essential knowledge will give you everything you need to understand what is needed and to get the cover you want.

With your files ready and book complete you need to understand the process of printing the finished work. The Successful Self-Publishing Course walks you through production, including the different printing methods available and how to convert your book into an eBook. It also stresses the importance of proofreading, how to proofread, and the common conventions used by proofreaders, should you choose to hire one.

Where many self-publishers fail is through not fully understanding distribution, because it doesn’t matter how good your book is, if no one can buy it you’re not going to make any money and it’ll be back to the 9-5. This course provides the knowledge you need to successfully get your book into bookshops, work with distributors and wholesalers, and price your book effectively for both printed and eBook versions.

You’ve published a book – don’t forget to tell people about it! Though before you publish, you need to have a marketing plan in place that will fit the content of your book. You’ll learn how to make sure your book is accurately represented in online bookstores and how to use tools such as social media, YouTube trailers, paid-for advertising, and mailing lists to promote and sell your book. You’ll also discover how to carry your marketing efforts on after publishing and through to your second book.

Who would benefit from this course?

You’ve written, or are in the process of writing, a book and want to publish it yourself, rather than work rely on a publisher, what do you do? This course outlines all the tasks involved and the skills needed to succeed in self-publishing a book.

If you’re intending on becoming a publisher yourself, the Successful Self-Publishing Course provides a comprehensive overview of the entire process – giving you a great foundational knowledge to build upon with further, degree-level education.
