writing is hard
don't go it alone
Run by New York Times-bestselling author Beth Revis and award-winning author and life coach Cristin Terrill, Wordsmith Workshops is a one-stop destination for three things:
everything we wished we'd known when we were still new and aspiring authors
cultivating sustainable working habits and mindsets that will help you get things done without burning out
and the chance to start building your community by meeting likeminded people who will become your critique partners, colleagues and friends
From elements of craft to the intricacies of the publishing industry, we're here to let you in on all of our secrets, help you achieve your writing goals, and welcome you to our community!
Build your community
Five days of education on craft and the workings of the industry, bonding with fellow writers who just get it, and having a really good time in a scenic location. Not to mention the food. There's a reason so many of our writers come back every year!
Work privately with the authors
Whether it's a quick query critique or multiple months of personalized book coaching, these are the offerings that are tailored to exactly what you need.
Work at your own pace
From webinars with top authors to video lectures and exercises you can revisit again and again, these tools allow you to learn at your own pace and on your schedule.
Engage with your peers
Building your writing community is just as important as building your skills, and here you can learn with like-minded people who share your goals and your challenges.
Cristin and Beth are the kindest, most approachable authors I've ever met and this retreat was one of the best things I've done for my writing career. I came away with increased confidence in my work, newfound friendships, and renewed enthusiasm for the writing process.
