First Letter Published

David H - July 8, 2019 writes:

I read through module 3, of the training course, and decided to give it a go. I wrote to TV Choice magazine about Top Gear. I followed all the tips. I deliberately chose Top Gear because it is a popular TV show. I devised a letter to the appropriate word count, and I wrote a letter in a similar vein to other letters published in the same magazine. The letter was published in the week of 29th June to 5th July 2019. I received a cheque for £10. The course fee has already started to pay for itself.

Michael S - July 17, 2019 replied:

Well done.

Willie N - August 31, 2019 replied:

Great start. I've done the 20 module Comprehensive Writing course. There is money to be made using the guidance in those modules. Keep up the graft.

Alice Vinten Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2020

“All I knew when I joined up with The Writers Bureau is that I'd always wanted to write and never had the nerve to start. I've been an avid reader from an early age, and 'being a published writer' seemed like an unobtainable dream. The Writers Bureau opened my eyes to possibilities that I'd never considered before - writing for magazines, pitching for non-fiction books, and researching the writing industry. On the 18th April 2019, my memoir On the Line - Life and Death in the Metropolitan Police was published in paperback by Two Roads Books.”
