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.

Annemarie Munro Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2022

"I have seen my writing journey as an adventure: What can I write? What am I best at? What new aspects of writing can I discover and contribute towards? I have welcomed the wide range of modules covering different types of writing, challenging me to try new aspects in style and content, pushing me gently outside my comfort zone with encouragement.

"I signed up for the course in December 2020 as a Christmas present to myself and I started the first module in January 2021. I have had eight pieces published: three paid earning £1080 and a star letter where I won a £250 hotel voucher."
