Frequently Asked Questions

Instantly! As soon as you enroll as a member, you’ll get access to all Writing Mastery Academy courses, video lectures, and exercises.

Absolutely! The video lectures inside all of our courses are pre-recorded so that you can start the course and work through the lectures at your own pace. There is no need to show up at a specific time, you’ll be able to login and start watching at whatever time suits you best. You can also take each course as many times as you want!

You will need an internet connection to stream the video lectures. You can access the courses on any device: desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile. Some of the exercises will ask you to write (these are writing courses after all!) so, you’ll want either a computer or pen and paper close by!

Hopefully this won’t be the case, but if the content isn’t what you expected you can request a refund within the 30 day money back guarantee window.

Inside some of the courses, you may see the instructor recommend products or services to help you get results faster. However, these extra purchases are never required and you will still get all the benefits of the course without these extra tools.

You can always contact support for technical-related questions. For questions about the course content, you can post in the Writing Mastery Online Community to get feedback from other students or bring your questions to the Live Webinar Events.

Jessica Brody is unable to answer questions about course content outside of the Live Webinar Events.

The Live Webinar events with Jessica Brody are scheduled regularly (normally once per month). Members will receive emails for each event as soon as they are scheduled.
