New Online Course Teaches How to Write and Sell Self-Help Books
College Auxiliary Services at SUNY Plattsburgh partnered with ed2go to offer hundreds of online, non-credit courses and has announced the launch of "Writing and Selling Self-Help Books."
This course, taught by New York Times bestselling author Carmen Berry, will introduce participants to the world of publishing and tell them the secrets for writing a self-help book that catches the attention of agents and publishers. Following step-by-step instructions, participants will build a polished proposal package and create a finely honed writing sample. They will also discover how to use the powerful technique of story-telling to kindle their readers' interest and illustrate their message.
This course is part of College Auxiliary Service's growing catalog of more than 300 instructor-facilitated online courses. Through well-crafted lessons, expert online instruction and interaction with fellow students, participants in these courses gain valuable knowledge at their convenience. They have the flexibility to study at their own pace combined with enough structure and support to complete the course. And they can access the classroom 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection.
New sessions of each course run every month. They last six weeks, with two new lessons being released weekly (for a total of 12). The courses are entirely Web-based with comprehensive lessons, quizzes, and assignments. A professional instructor facilitates every course; pacing learners, answering questions, giving feedback and facilitating discussions.
