Another Writers Write Graduate is Published

Dear Amanda

I am happy to tell you I received my first ever publishing contract today and your course was what started it all. Although this is a non-fiction book I used everything I learned at writers write.

Thank you so much for your generous and comprehensive sharing of your knowledge.

Warm regards

Annette Kinnear
