Become a Certified Publishing Consultant

Join Our Special Pilot Program

My Word Publishing has started a Publishing Consulting Certification Program where we train people to become Publishing Consultants.

We’re continuing with a special pilot program throughout 2021!

Why Get Trained Through My Word Publishing’s Training Group?

My Word Publishing has devised a new publishing model where we manage an author’s project through the entire process but have no ownership. The author maintains 100% of their rights, royalties, and final decisions. We are their advisors and managers, the producer of their book project.

“The Publishing Consultant Certification Program was truly more valuable to me than any other course I had previously taken. It pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and start becoming the entrepreneur I always dreamed of being. Not only do you learn a lot, Polly is one of the best teachers you could ask for—always available to answer questions, and has a great personality to ensure you’re having fun!”
