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!

 

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

2:00-4:00pm EST

 

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!

This fun, once-a-month activity allows you to give Word Lab a no-risk spin!

 

Wordsmith Seminar

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. 

DECEMBER'S SEMINAR: AUTHOR ROSHANI CHOKSHI

Monday, December 14th

8:00-9:00pm EST

 

New York Times-bestselling author Roshani Chokshi -- author of The Gilded Wolves trilogy and the debut title Aru Shah and the End of Time from the Rick Riordan Presents imprint -- will be teaching us about weaving mythology into our stories and turning old legends into new texts.

If you have a writer in your life, consider showing your support for their art through Wordsmith Gift Cards! Available in a variety of amounts, you can give your writer a free seminar to help them grow in their craft, a month (or more!) of Word Lab to help them invest in their story, or a critique session to help kickstart their career!

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.

"Cristin is an incredible book coach. In a few short weeks, I was able to use her guidance to get a raise freelance writing, create a more realistic and sustainable writing routine, and work through a querying plan.

 

Cristin is great at helping writers discover their strengths and is always a compassionate friend and mentor when you need it most."

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