READY TO BOOK YOUR PLACE?
"Do you share printers and supply information?"
YES! Plus there is a forum which has over 5 years of content you can access. I've also recently self-published and traditionally published again (2017) so have lots of current information.
"Are my ideas safe in the class?"
You do not have to share your work in the forum, some do, others participate but don't share and that's ok with everyone. Some students do share their work privately with me and I've kept deck secrets and honoured the ownership of concepts for years.
"Can I ask Cheralyn questions directly?"
Yes you can. I can get very busy but I do make my students a priority so am available to them.

IN THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN~
Where to find your own, develop the ones you have and turn them into decks.
- Get Sorted.
The organisational skills you need to get you on track and keep you there.
- Magickal Creative Spaces.
From kitchen tables, to portable studios, to entire rooms, no matter where you work, creating a deck is very special work. So let's create a protected and dedicated magickal space to grow your deck.
- The Bones.
How to lay down your deck structure, find keywords of oracle, affirmation and other decks and how to work within the world of tarot.
- Visual Anthologies ~ Your Deck Art.
How to create your art, how to collaborate with artists and how to get your art print-ready.
PLUS Cheralyn is an Art Teacher so she has included bonus art lessons and stacks of ideas and resources to get those creative juices flowing. She is also is happy to offer constructive art support for any level.
- Guidebooks to take us there.
How to write, when to write, things you should, could and might include to make it all come together so your cards and guidebook become the magickal tool which is your deck!
copywrite, contracts, collaborations, its all covered so you and your work stay safe and you fully understand how to respectfully and legally create your deck when using the work or inspiration of others.
- Sharing it with the World ~ Publishing.
selfpublish, assist-publish or traditional publish, we cover ever option and discuss which will suit your project.
- Fund Raising
should you decide to go it alone or seek assisted publishing, you might like to look at crowd-funding. I've run a successful Kickstarter campaign to launch my FLOWERS OF THE NIGHT self-published Oracle and know all the pitfalls as well as the tips to run yours. There are also a lot of additional ongoing benefits to Kickstarter that may surprise you!
