writing is hard

don't go it alone


Run by New York Times-bestselling author Beth Revis and award-winning author Cristin Terrill, Wordsmith Workshops is a one-stop destination for all the things that we wished we'd known when we were still new and aspiring authors. From elements of craft to the intricacies of the publishing industry, we're here to let you in on all of our secrets and help your writing achieve your goals!


In-Person Retreats

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!

Customized Guidance

Learn one-on-one from 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.


Independent Learning

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.

Community Instruction

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.
