Writers … it’s time to become successful authors.

This is the place for you, and we’re so glad you’re here!
Writing is a journey…
take the next step with us.
Marketing. It isn’t a bad word, I promise.
Many writers hate being told they need a platform, and the thought of actually selling what they write makes them break out in hives. But you know what? When you’re doing it right, it not only isn’t a chore, it’s a JOY. (I’m not kidding!) “Marketing” is just about building relationships with people like you. People you can serve in a unique way. People just waiting for the stories you have to tell or the wisdom you have to impart. Explore our articles and classes and learn how!
WHO WE ARE
Classes for Writers is run by Roseanna and David White, a husband and wife team who have experience with just about every aspect of the publishing industry. Roseanna is a bestselling, Christy-Award winning author with dozens of books in print from the Christian publishing industry’s biggest publishers, and David is a marketing expert and publisher at the small press they started in 2005, WhiteFire Publishing.
So why take our classes and courses? Why listen to our marketing advice?
Because we are NOT just marketing or PR professionals trying to sell something to authors without ever having done it ourselves, with our own books. We actually DO THIS and make a living from it. We write the books. We edit them. We design them. We publish them. We market them.
These classes and courses and systems aren’t something we came up with to try to sell to authors. It’s something we came up with to BECOME successful authors; and something we then put into words so we could help other authors do the same.
Whether you’re here for the writing advice or the marketing insights, we’ve got you covered! We have an ever-growing base of both free and premium articles to make your writing successful.
Most writers dream of someday earning a living from the passion–but rarely does that happen by accident. Learn how to intentionally build your career.
One of the hardest and most important parts of writing is building that habit and consistency.
Up until now, writing has just been for fun. But if you’re ready to take your hobby to the next level, here are some things to consider.
It’s about more than what you write. It’s about who you choose to be.
We believe in giving you tools not just to improve your writing or hone in on your audience, but to build YOU into the kind of writer you really want to be. That’s why many of our Writing Track classes aren’t about the craft…they’re about YOU.

Settings, Systems, and More
Writing is art, which means there’s no one way to do it…but that doesn’t mean some tips aren’t helpful!
The Big One.
Figuring out who your audience in…and how to engage them…and how to convince them to buy your books without coming off as spammy or sales-y is HARD.
It’s also one of the most rewarding endeavors you’ll ever undertake. That’s why it’s worth spending real time and energy on getting it RIGHT.
