Word Lab

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!

Every Wednesday and Sunday of the month, 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 $195 per month and runs Wednesdays from 8:00-10:00pm EDT and Sundays from 2:00-4:00pm EDT.

 

The third Monday of each month, join Beth and Cristin 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!

The chat is broken into three segments:

 

  • A general discussion with the authors (and sometimes guest experts)

  • A lesson on the chosen subject

  • A live workshop of a participant's writing sample in an interactive, hands-on critique

 

All seminar participants will receive downloads of the materials covered in the lesson and have the chance to ask questions of the authors and guest speakers in real time. Volunteers will be chosen from interested participants to have their writing critiqued as part of the presentation.

Book Coaching

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.

Writing a novel for publication can be confusing, frustrating and sometimes lonely, but you don't have to go it alone!

Award-winning author Cristin Terrill is here to work with you one-on-one, helping you identify what you need to work on in order to progress toward your goals, whether that’s:

 

  • an aspect of craft that’s tripping you up

  • problems establishing a productive writing routine

  • query preparation and support

  • mental challenges like self-criticism or imposter syndrome that are weighing you down

 

In weekly one-hour video chats, you’ll come up with a plan to tackle these challenges step-by-step and get you where you want to go!
