What's Up Next at the Academy

Starting June 15th, 2020, we have Middle Grade Mastery, the best interactive online Middle Grade course available. Middle Grade Novels are magical AND hot so Hillary Homzie and Mira Reisberg created a course to help open those doors with great bonuses and even better opportunities. Find out more here!

It truly is our pleasure to be able to share our courses and learning resources, editor/agent access, mentorship, membership, and wonderful communities to help you create fantastic publishable children's books.

In fact, to date, our former students have published or contracted over 400 Children's Books!
