Can I Become a Published Writer?

Yes – the beauty of writing is that anyone can do it. All publishers are really interested in is how well you write – they are not concerned about your:

  • age – publishers are not interested in how old you are, unless it’s integral to the writing, such as an article about your experience in the war years.

  • location – you can be anywhere in the world as long as you have the means to send your work either hard copy or electronically to the publisher.

  • back-ground – this is irrelevant in writing as anyone can write about anything, all you need is the ability to research well.

  • culture – as with background, publishers are not concerned about what culture you come from.

  • sexual orientation – another factor that is irrelevant to publishers.

  • gender – you can be male and write fantastic stories or articles for women and vice versa, gender is not important.

  • educational achievements – as long as you can write well publishers are not interested in what educational achievements you attained unless you hope to write as an ‘expert’ on a subject.

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.”
