‘Invest The Write Way was a very valuable investment in my writing journey. Georgie presented all the facts and practical tips without sugar coating them, yet still in a way that both inspired and motivated me as a writer. For new writers it can be really hard to know what to do and where to turn. This course has given me the tools and knowledge to take the next step.’ - Sal G
