DISMISS MESSAGE

If you're a writer who sometimes struggles to get to the page, and you want to gain momentum in your writing life AND enjoy the creative process, then you already know that this can all be so much harder than it sounds.

As a writer, you crave that sense of creative satisfaction, but sometimes fear kicks in and you find it hard to get to the page consistently.

You know you need to put "butt-in-chair" to get your writing done, but when your scheduled writing time comes, somehow you're in the kitchen, scrolling on your phone or chilling with some Netflix instead. #oops

When you watch weeks zip by without gaining momentum in your writing, you can begin to doubt not just your commitment, but your very SELF as a creative being.

Hearing other writers brag about their page count, share their success publishing in magazines or launching their new books, can leave you feeling sad and disappointed with yourself.

I get it. This is why I created The Writer's Flow Studio and we've helped hundreds of writers go from a state of fear to a state of flow in their writing lives.

If you want a proven approach to getting your writing flow back and creating a writing life you LOVE, then you are 100% in the right place.

CREATE A WRITING LIFE WITH FOCUS AND FLOW

  • You can write consistently again

    Consistent writing connects you to your work-in-progress, but also to your self-identity as a writer.
  • You can gain a sense of momentum with your writing

    Steady progress will generate a sense of momentum which helps build up essential faith in both the work and our creative process.
  • You can feel connected with a community of writers to encourage and support you

    You're a writer. You have thoughts and feelings about writing that only other writers really understand. You need inspiration and motivation in a supportive community.
  • You can leave fear and anxiety behind and create a writing life you love

    There are tools and techniques to manage your writing worries -- including solutions backed by science -- so that you can keep "butt in chair" long enough to write the work only you can.
  • You can finish your projects and achieve your writing goals

    You can't publish unless you can finish. Consistent writing and the support of community can help you get there faster.

The Four Important Mindset Shifts You Need to Make Right Now

To Create and Sustain a Writing Life You Love

1. Creative Anxiety is the New Black

Worried your writing sucks? Congrats, my friend! You're a completely normal writer. All writers (and all artists) feel this on a regular basis. Your fear and anxiety around the creative process won't ever fully go away -- and you wouldn't want it to! -- but it can be proactively managed so that you can create and maintain a writing life you love. 

2. Practice Over Product

A healthy and sustainable self-identity as a writer is one that values the practice of writing over anything you eventually produce. The good news is that the path to finishing and publishing stories, poems, novels or memoirs is entirely rooted in your ability to show up for your creative practice as a writer, over and over again. 

 3. Consistency is EVERYTHING.

Nothing matters more than you showing up consistently for your writing -- and for your SELF as a writer. You need a writing life you love so much you can't imagine taking a vacation because time away from your desk just wouldn't be as much fun as time spent there writing.

4. Community Counts for SO MUCH

The tired image of the lone writer hunched over their desk in a freezing garrett, surrounded by discarded manuscript pages is outdated and dysfunctional. Having a community of writers who know the ins and outs (and all of the feels!) of the creative process is critical for encouragement and accountability. A sustainable and rewarding writing life is one supported by community. 

I'm going to let you in on a little secret...

As an award-winning writer who's taken all of the workshops -- from two-hour bootcamps all the way to my MFA -- I can tell you that mindset is something no one teaches or talks about. You can do all the learning about writing craft, but if you don't get your mindset right, even the most talented writers can find themselves feeling lost and alone.

But it doesn't have to be that way for you.

Introducing

The Writer's Flow Studio

A Monthly Membership Program for Writers Who Want to Create and Sustain a Writing Life They Love

"I'm half way through my novel I think, and going strong, writing the first draft by hand in a notebook, getting lots of talking voices in my head telling me what happens next or why someone did something, and it's just so fun. Plus, I've posted a prompt on my mamomemo blog and Medium with some writing everyday this month. Got some good flow going!"

-- LORI, NOVELIST

"I'm so excited!! I have been struggling a bit, actually a lot, with how to structure the shifts between the past and present and some stand alone scenes, but this morning it just fell into a structure that I think will work!"

-- KIM, NOVELIST

The Writer's Flow Studio is the ONLY program of its kind that…

1. Uses science-backed techniques to help you proactively manage your creative anxiety and achieve a FLOW state.

2. Supports you to show up consistently for yourself AND your writing, including via regular hosted Community Writing Sessions on Zoom.

3. Offers you the encouragement, support and accountability you need to overcome your fear and self-doubt and achieve your writing goals. 

4. Delivers monthly masterclass wisdom on mindset and the writing craft by award-winning published writers in intimate small-group settings.

So if you’re ready to create and sustain a writing life you love...

Here's how The Writer's Flow Studio can help you get there:

1. Community Writing Sessions

Create and maintain a consistent writing practice with 8 accompanied writing sessions each week. (That's 32 sessions available to you, each and every month!)

Are you more likely to go to the gym if you have a personal trainer there waiting for you? Think of this as a personal trainer for your writing practice!

  • 8X a week;¬†one every single day
  • Zoom sessions, no video needed. Yoga pants and PJs welcome!
  • We meet, we center ourselves and we write -- for 45 minutes each time
  • And yes, we have writing prompts -- a new one for every day of the year!
2. Centering Exercises

Eliminate anxiety and achieve a state of creative flow

We calm the amygdala and center ourselves before each writing session. Community writing sessions always start this way and you have access to recorded exercises in your membership area as well. Go from a state of fear to a state of flow: ahhhhhh 

  • Deep Breathing
  • Visualization
  • Zen Tangle
  • Body Scan
  • Adult Coloring (Because nobody stays scared while coloring!)
3. Weekly Accountability Check-Ins

Keep yourself accountable for making steady progress with your writing. 

The Writer's Flow Studio works for writers of different genres, from beginners to published and awarded. What we all have in common is the practice of writing and a desire to create and maintain a sense of momentum in our writing lives.  We do this by checking in each week to say how the past week went, and what our goals and intentions are for the coming week.

  • Keep yourself accountable
  • Track your weekly progress
  • Connect with other writers
  • Book giveaways every month, for a little extra motivation!
 
4. Live Monthly Masterclass

Sustain your commitment and progress with a monthly mindset refresh via a Live Monthly Masterclass training & Coaching Sessions. 

Motivation flags and the boost from an inspirational quote on Instagram only lasts so long. Reconnect each month with the motivating force behind your writing with a Live Masterclass designed to support a productive writer's mindset. This is the stuff they don't teach in most creative writing programs! 

  • Bring your creative mindset questions to a LIVE Masterclass or Coaching Session each month.
  • Access to a library of over 2 dozen pre-recorded Mindset Masterclasses,¬†on topics such as Self-Coaching for Writers, Facing Failure, Beating Perfectionism, Finding Focus...and MORE.

 

5. Visiting Writer Program

Every month, we have craft workshops with Writing Mentors in 3 Genres (Poetry, Fiction, and Memoir.) 

These are published and award-winning writers who know what it's like to create and sustain a writing life that helps them stay consistent and generate the pages they need. Writing, revision, editing, publishing, promotion -- we get into it all. 

  • Improve your writing with¬†a monthly workshop on aspects of writing craft, delivered by accomplished writers.
  • Our mentors are¬†Elisabeth de Mariaffi (Fiction), Ronit Plank (Memoir) and Manahil Bandukwala (Poetry).¬†All accomplished and award-winning authors!

 

6. Private Facebook Community

You don't have to feel alone with your writing. 

Nothing will be more important to your writing life than community. Knowing we're not alone with our creative struggles and having a place to go where everyone understands how it feels when a character develops a mind of their own, or you can't find that perfect word this morning, is priceless. 

  • Connect with, encourage and celebrate other writers
  • Let other writers encourage, support and celebrate YOU!
 
7. Writing Craft Book Club

Learn how to write more effectively. 

You're never alone with your writing. Thousands of writers have gone before you and they've already dealt with every possible craft challenge. Let's learn from the best with a bi-monthly Writing Craft Book Club. (Oh, and do we do craft book giveaways? Heck yes, we do!) 

  • Informal come-as-you-are Book Club discussion every second month (so it's not overwhelming and we all have time to read the books we'd like to discuss)
  • Suggest the books you'd like to read together in community

 

8. Exclusive Membership Portal

Everything available for you, as and when you need it. 

Miss a class? No problem! All the Masterclasses are loaded into your private membership portal, along with the latest writing prompts and the centering exercises so you can use them on your own schedule, as needed.

  • Do writing sessions on your own schedule, with the¬†centering exercises and writing prompts always available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the questions writers have asked before joining The Writer's Flow Studio.

The process for our Writing Sessions is available in the Membership Portal, and all the centering exercises to use before each session are there as well. If you miss a session, you'll have all you need to do the session on your own time. 

Also, let me encourage you not to pressure yourself to attend ALL the sessions each week. Just look at your week and fit in the ones that work best for you. And if you haven't been writing for a while, I recommend starting out with 1-2 sessions per week and taking it from there.

You're not alone. A lot of writers feel this way and we just don't talk enough about it. We use specific centering exercises for a short period at the start of each writing session to help calm our nervous systems and enter the writing in an open state. And you'll be in a community with a group of writers who know exactly what it's like so you won't be alone with your fears. Also, the Masterclasses are all about mindset, so the whole Studio is designed to ease your anxiety and keep you writing.

You have 8 Accompanied Writing Sessions to choose from each week:

Mondays, 7am and 7pm Eastern

Tuesday, 3pm Eastern

Wednesday, 7pm Eastern

Thursday, 3pm Eastern

Friday, 7am Eastern

Saturday, 12pm Eastern

Sundays, 10am Eastern

We offer a variety of times so that there are options for multiple time zones. Studio members are in Canada, the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand. (Want to check your time zone? Eastern time is New York/Boston/Toronto time.)

If you're between projects, or just want to play around, you can use one of the writing prompts provided. Other Studio members have found this has helped them generate new ideas and new work, even when they weren't expecting it.

Absolutely.

We understand that life happens and circumstances change. You can cancel anytime just by emailing [email protected].

You'll still have access for the rest of the month. I hope you won't want to leave us, but if you do, no worries: I've got your back.

However, because your price is locked-in today, if you do cancel and want to join again later, I can't guarantee the price will be the same in the future. Fair warning :-)

The Writer's Flow Studio is for writers at all stages of the writer's journey. It's designed to bust through the mindset issues that keep ALL writers from being consistent with their practice and loving their writing life. You can generate momentum in the Studio whether you're "just" journalling, writing individual stories, poems or essays, or working on a book-length project in any genre. The Studio is focused on process and practice, so it works for all creative writers.

Because our focus is on mindset, practice and process, The Writer's Flow Studio works for all creative writers.

Our writing prompts cover fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction.

If you're writing a business book or self-help it may not be the best place for you though, since we don't offer any craft workshops in these areas.
