More success for workshop author

Waikato’s Don Jessen is forging a successful new career as a writer after attending one of our Hamilton workshops on How to Get Published. A former caravan manufacturer, Jessen came to the workshop in August 2012, saying he wanted to learn whether he could learn how to convert his desire to write into becoming a published author. He’s since had three non-fiction books commercially published and has self-published his first novella as an ebook. For full story, click on the heading or image above.
