Embark on a Unique Writer's Journey Created Specifically For You...
Re: A Rare Chance For Non-fiction and Children's Picture Book Writers to Learn Directly from Publishing Insiders!
As the world of publishing takes a temporary break and many of us find ourselves stuck at home, now is the perfect time for you to dust off that manuscript and work towards becoming a published author by this time next year.
With over 15,000 new books released every year in English alone, publishing is often called the most competitive market there is. You may have the best idea in the world, but you need proven strategies to ensure your work gets the attention (and sales) that it deserves.
This is why we are excited to announce that, for the first time ever, Exisle Publishing will be inviting a handful of aspiring authors to learn directly from publishing insiders about how to plan, write, pitch and publish a successful book from the ground up.
In this unique, highly customized writing and publishing journey, our experts will take you from wherever you are to wherever you want to be. We will work closely with you to achieve your goals.
If You Want to Do Any One (Or More) of These Things...
...then Exisle Academy is the answer you have been searching for.
100% unique and personalized based on your own specific goals and circumstances, Exisle Academy will tap into our decades of experience as a successful, mainstream publisher to teach you everything you ever wanted to know about the world of publishing books for adults and children.
If you're fed up with sending off manuscripts to publishing houses only to get silence - or worse - a generic rejection letter; if you're tired of reading blog post after blog posts about how to get your work published but still aren't seeing results; if you're tired of broken promises and ignored phone calls; if you know that what you are creating deserves more attention than it is getting, then Exisle Academy might just be what you're looking for. (Even if you simply find yourself with time on your hands and want a structured project to make the best use of it all, then this is a great opportunity!)
But fair warning. This program is not for the dabbler or dilettante. It is for dedicated writers who have a clear message and/or story to tell, and are willing to do whatever it takes to bring their creative vision to life. Exisle is not a vanity publisher nor ever will be. We take the commercial risk on all our books so you are dealing with people at the forefront of the industry.
Over the next few weeks, you'll have direct access to highly experienced senior publishing executives and bestselling authors. The course will be fully customized based on your goals and what stage of the writing/publishing journey you are currently at, but here's a taste of what our team will be able to teach you...
(Taster): Exisle Academy Will Teach You Exactly How To...
'We receive thousands of submissions a year. Sadly, most of them go nowhere. But the handful that make it through all have a few key things in common...'
Editorial Director Exisle Publishing / EK Books
This one-of-a-kind program is open to writers at any stage of their journey. You may have already published or self-published a few books that have not been as successful as you had hoped for. You may have a manuscript sitting on your desktop that has not yet been picked up. You may just have a burning idea that you want to do justice to from the start.
The guidance you receive will be specifically crafted for you, taking into account the full depth of our company-wide knowledge and the experience of the many best-selling authors we are proud to have worked with for years.
Exisle Publishing was founded in the early 1990s with the mission of giving a voice to writers whom the mainstream often overlooked.
Ironically, we've since become something of a mainstream publisher ourselves, with branches in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom, and a successful children's imprint, EK Books. But we haven't forgotten our roots, and our mission.
With Exisle Academy we want to guide people who have a message, who have something to say, but who may not yet have the knowledge, experience and industry contacts, along the path to making their book the success it deserves to be.
The moment you sign up, you will immediately receive a welcome bonus: The eBook version of Everyone Can Write - a Guide to Get You Started. Written by Exisle author Howard Gelman, this is a no-nonsense guide to writing clearly and effectively. While the book is written with non-fiction authors in mind, if you're a children's author then the tips will help you too, especially when it comes to writing your book proposal and communicating with media and industry gatekeepers.
Within 48 hours of you signing up, a member of our team will get in touch by email and send you a detailed survey where you'll be able to tell us a little more about your publishing goals and what stage you are at now. If you already have some or all of your book written, you will be invited to send this in now if you feel ready, but there's no rush - manuscript critique is available to you throughout the entire duration of the course.
Our professional team will carefully review the results of your survey and will put together a three-month lesson plan designed specifically around your needs. You will be assigned a mentor from our team whose expertise best suits your goals. This mentor will co-ordinate lessons for you and provide you with all the material you need. Depending on the breadth of the information you want to learn, your mentor may also introduce you to other members of our publishing team or some of our most successful authors who will provide advice that is specifically relevant to you.
Your Exisle Academy Timeline:
Here are a few examples of how this could look. Remember, every book and every writer is unique, so your course experience will be specifically tailored to your needs and preferences.

Registration is strictly limited to 25 writers who will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once you sign up, you will receive your survey within 48 hours. Within seven days of receipt of your completed survey, we will introduce you to your assigned mentor so you can schedule your first lesson.
While you can cancel your membership at any time, we consider "completion" of the course to mean writers who have been with us for a minimum of three months. If, after three months, you wish to continue learning, then you will have the option to extend for another three months.
Complete at least three months with Exisle academy, and not only will you know more about how to become a successful author than 99% of writers out there, you may also be awarded your very own publishing contract with Exisle Publishing or our children's imprint, EK Books.
We are not a 'vanity' publisher. We only publish books that we believe will succeed commercially and will have a positive and meaningful social impact. If, after you have completed at least three months' worth of lessons with Exisle Academy, we consider each other a good fit, then there's a very real chance that you could end up with your own publishing contract with us!
