SELF PUBLISHING 101 is NOW OPEN! Click here to learn more

SPF Foundation

We want to make successful self-publishing a possibility for everyone. We also realise that our premium courses aren’t cheap and not everyone can afford them. That’s why, in conjunction with Reedsy, and mindset author Marc Reklau, we’ve launched the SPF Foundation. Every year, we’ll give up to five aspiring students a once in a lifetime chance to get their indie author careers off to the best possible starts.
