Become a Certified Publishing Consultant

Join Our Special Pilot Program

My Word Publishing is starting a new Publishing Consulting Certification Program where we train people to become Publishing Consultants.

We’re starting with a special pilot program throughout 2020!

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.

Why Become a Publishing Consultant?

  • Help people tell their stories
  • Take your job anywhere
  • Enjoy a fun and creative job
  • Benefit from unlimited earning potential
  • Work the hours you want
  • Support writers’ dreams to become published authors
  • Own your own business in a fast-growing industry

What is a Publishing Consultant?

A Publishing Consultant:

  • manages an author’s project through the entire writing, production, and publishing process. You are the producer of the book.
  • informs, advises, and educates the author every step of the way through their book publishing project so they have a seamless, no-drama experience
  • sets expectations all through the project so the author has no surprises
  • assures all details are covered
  • assures all timelines and budgets stay in place
  • finds the right service providers for the author

What the Certification Program includes:

  • 30 hours of one-on-one training
  • All the documents needed for the entire publishing process
  • Access to training videos
  • Certification test and diploma
