Marge Brown, Freelance Writing Business Mastery, Author and Digital Publisher
Author of: The Jungle of Truth
About Marge: Before relocating to North Carolina, I was a Contributing Editor at PC Magazine, following 20+ years as a corporate manager.
After our move, my husband and I co-authored some personal development books and wrote for our community magazine. Our three adult children settled in California, Michigan, and Kentucky, and we now have five grandchildren.
I’m now developing online training for aspiring freelance writers. My husband and I are co-authoring a freelance writing business book, for late 2018 publication.
While visiting family in 2017, our grandson and I decided to write an adventure novel together. We worked virtually for six months to co-author our book, The Jungle of Truth, which we published on his 12th birthday.
Writing with my grandson was such a fantastic experience for me, that I created an online course, Write with a Young Author Challenge, to inspire other grandparents to write with their grandchildren.

The Main Thing Students Will Learn or Gain by Going Through this Course:
The main thing grandparents will learn by going through this course is how to build a stronger relationship with their grandchildren by planning and completing an original writing project together.
How did D’vorah’s course on Creating an Online Classroom assist you in the process of creating and setting up your course?
I followed D’vorah’s advice to create a course around something I enjoyed and something I could keep simple and fun for my students. I enrolled in her Create a Challenge Experience Program at the time my grandson and I published our adventure novel. I decided that other grandparents could experience the type of joy I had from completing a writing project with my grandson.
I followed D’vorah’s program to create my course outline and build the online modules. I took her advice to step away periodically so as not to feel overwhelmed with the course-building process. Once I had the modules built, I moved on to create the Sales Page. At this point, I had to get others involved to review the concept of the course, read through the modules and give me their feedback. The feedback was all positive, so I had fun incorporating testimonials in the Sales Page.
Whenever I felt like the course creation was taking too long, I thought of the grandparents and grandchildren I wanted to reach with my course and knew the process was totally worth my time.
I could not have started or completed this project without D’vorah’s course and support!
Words of wisdom to those wanting to set up an online classroom: Teachable is a great technical platform for beginners to advanced course creators. When you combine Teachable with D’vorah’s Create a Challenge Experience Program, you have the winning combination to get your classroom launched with your first course.
