Join Peter to learn how you can write and share your passion without being a computer geek or needing special software.  Come away from this class with the confidence to investigate and write your first ebook.

Peter Parker is a transport nerd, electronics hobbyist and video producer who started writing for magazines while still a teenager. Since 2015 Peter has written four specialist non-fiction ebooks and received a Technical Excellence Award from the Wireless Institute of Australia for videos and ebooks.
