W.A.N.A. is the training ground for those who desire to be successful storytellers in a new publishing paradigm. The modern writer has more opportunities than ever before, but also faces challenges that have never existed in human history.
Discoverability is a nightmare. Brick-and-mortar stores and POS (point of sale) locations are dwindling daily, meaning more readers are shopping on-line. Everyone with a computer can be “a published author.”
If storytelling is a craft and writing is a business, then W.A.N.A. is the trade school (though it might feel more like the agoge). The digital age author must to far do more with far less. We must be better, stronger, faster than ever before and trained to anticipate, drive and take advantage of change instead of merely adapting to it (or griping about it).
A marketplace that has never existed before requires an author who has never existed before. A borderless world demands classrooms without walls.
Our goal is to provide affordable and accessible author training from tested professionals who are proven experts in what they teach. While we welcome the hobbyist, we’re built for those who desire to go pro. We’re a school with a different set of priorities—readers before critics, sales over certificates, and royalties off everything rightfully yours from film to foreign to audio and more.
