My name is Lesley Hart and I have been teaching creative writing for five years. I was concerned that having finished my classes my students would often lose motivation or not know where to take their skills next.

Author’s Pen sprang from the desire to help authors at any stage of their writing journey by developing their expertise to achieve their writing aspirations. Author’s Pen ensures authors can bring a quality product to the market, with the tools to market it effectively.
