Writing is tough, and getting your butt in the chair is half the battle. The accountability and companionship of Word Lab makes it fun and easy.
You've got a novel to work on, and we're going to help you do it!
Twice a week, you'll be invited to join Beth, Cristin, and fellow writers on a video call to participate in a live write-in. Get your words written, ask questions of the authors, commiserate with new friends over your drafting struggles, and did we mention get your words written?
We guarantee you'll write more - and have more fun doing it - with us than you will on your own!
Word Lab is $165 per month and runs on Wednesdays from 8:00-10:00pm EST and Sundays from 2:00-4:00pm EST.
Once a month Cristin or Beth will host Word Bet, a fun challenge to kickstart your monthly writing goal!
The premise is simple: everyone starts the two-hour session with their own word count or other writing goal (such as a number of pages to read and revise during the session). We then have brief check-ins during the two-hour sprint, and at the end of the day, if you met your own goal, you're entered for a drawing to win a free month of Word Lab!
JANUARY WORD BET
Saturday, January 2nd
One person who participates in Word Bet will be entered for a random drawing to win a free month of Word Lab sessions. Regardless of if you win or not, you'll definitely get a ton of words written during our session and have a chance to try out the Word Lab format to see if it works for you!
Bet on yourself!
This fun, once-a-month activity allows you to give Word Lab a no-risk spin!
Upgrade your skills and learn from experts
One Monday each month, join Beth, Cristin, and a guest author or industry professional as they host a live online tutorial focused on one aspect of writing craft or the publishing industry. This is a fun and easy way to level up your skills from the comfort of your own couch for just $10!
All seminar participants will have the chance to ask questions of the authors and guest speakers in real time. Some seminars will also include a live workshop of a participant's writing sample in an interactive, hands-on critique.
All past seminars are available for replay HERE!

Writing a novel is like trying to navigate an unfamiliar path at night. But we've traveled this path before and have a flashlight to lend you.
