Your step-by-step guide to becoming a writer

Would you like to get paid to WRITE? Do you want to change careers? Does the idea of crafting stories, meeting people and seeing your words in print appeal to you?

If you've always wanted to get published and explore the world of writing ... you can! If you follow our inspiring workbook and audio program, you will be well on your way to a new career as a writer. It doesn't matter if you're in a completely unrelated job because this program maps out a plan you can follow in order to change careers and succeed as a writer.

How do I know this?

Because I've done the same thing. My name is Valerie Khoo. I'm the founder and National Director of the Australian Writers' Centre. I used to be an accountant. At the time, I thought I'd better take a "safe" career option. But one day I realised I had to give in to my childhood dream of becoming a writer. I eventually decided I had to follow my passions, so I set myself a plan to transition careers – and I've never looked back.

Now, I'm a journalist, author and entrepreneur. I've contributed regularly to The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age newspapers and I'm the author of five books. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. I also write for a range of corporate and consumer publications. And I love it! Sometimes, I have to pinch myself that I'm being paid so well to do what I absolutely love.

I'm always thankful that I had the guts to Reinvent Myself. And you can too ...

Here's what you receive:

  • An audio program in 3 parts that will lead you on your journey of reinvention.
  • A comprehensive workbook/transcripts so you have my tips, advice and strategies at your fingertips.
  • 5 inspiring case studies of people from all walks of life who have recently reinvented themselves – to become writer.
  • 12 exclusive interviews with successful and established writers who share their secrets on how to make it. These include:

Michael Cunningham – Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours and By Nightfall.

Pamela Freeman – Creative writing guru and author of over 20 books, including Blood Ties, Deep Water and Full Circle.

Kate Grenville – One of Australia's finest writers, Kate is the author of award-winning novels such as The Secret River and Sarah Thornhill

Kerri Sackville – Blogger-turned-author of two books, When My Husband Does the Dishes: a memoir of marriage and motherhood and The Little Book of Anxiety.

Matthew Reilly – Phenomenally popular action/thriller author of nearly 20 books, including Contest, Ice Station, Hover Car Racer and the Scarecrow series.

Thomas Keneally – Australian National Living Treasure and author of classic novels such as The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith, Schindler's Ark and Daughters of Mars.

And many more.

You can start NOW

Your Reinvent Yourself workbook and audio program is your foundation for success. Years from now, you don't want to be saying to yourself: "I wish I had tried to be a writer ..."

You can become a writer – and you can start that journey NOW with this step-by-step guide.

Reinvent Yourself is like having me right by your side, showing you what to do every step of the way. If you did have face-to-face one-on-one mentoring with me, a mere 15 minutes would cost you more than the price of this product alone. And my schedule is very booked up.

It's like a one-on-one session with me

That's why I've created this workbook and audio program. It's everything you need to Reinvent Yourself. It's me talking directly to you. You can listen on your phone, while you're commuting or while you're doing the gardening. Unlike a one-off mentoring session, you can "playback" my advice whenever you need some motivation.

Your first step

The best time to start is NOW. Order your own copy of Reinvent Yourself and get started straight away – you can take it slow, or ramp it up if you're in a hurry! The choice is yours.

Rave reviews about
Reinvent Yourself

"I just wanted to let you know that I bought your 'Reinvent Yourself' Audio Workshop and absolutely loved it."
- Nicole Foster

"I completed the Writing for newspapers and magazines in January this year. Since then I have also purchased and currently using the Reinvent Yourself audio program. I'm just writing to let you know that these two courses have really helped me focus on my writing and encouraged me to write more frequently and with more focus and structure.

"With the help of both courses I have now made writing a part of my everyday life, rather than just a hobby that I do when I have time. I feel that my confidence is building and I'm moving forward with my passion. Thank you. I could not have made these simple changes without your guidance."
- Catherine Hawthorne
