Invaluable to writers of all kinds, as Mark Le Fanu of The Society of Authors has said of Getting Published.

These invaluable Writers’ & Artists’ guides by writer and Workshop founder Harry Bingham are ideal for writers hoping to publish, both available on Amazon.

Give a writer a book and you can’t go far wrong.

The Writers' WorkshopHow To Write
is a comprehensive guide on how to write the kind of book that an agent will want to represent, and that a publisher will want to buy. Suitable for novelists of every genre, this will help new writers just starting out. It may also help if you have a first draft, are starting to wrestle it into shape.


The Writers' WorkshopOur guide to Getting Published starts where How To Write ends. Getting Published deals with how to revise your book, where to get help, whether you need an agent, how to select which agents to target, how to write cover letters, synopses, and absolutely everything else you need to know. The book also deals with the process of publication, how to increase the chances of your book becoming a huge success.
