What writer doesn’t dream of making a living from their words?

Or reaching the top of the bestseller charts?

But, when you hear how just 2% of writers make a living from their writing, it starts to feel like an impossible dream. 

What’s the point in putting in so much effort if the odds of success are so low?

You’ve tried the free webinars. You’ve read endless books. ‘Helpful’ friends and family have tried to tell you what to do – despite having no literary or business background. But none of those things have gotten you anywhere.

Maybe you’re just starting out and feel overwhelmed. 

Or you’ve written and finished a novel and don’t know what to do next. 

Or you’ve written and published something but it didn’t perform as well as you’d hoped. 

Where do you go now?

Dreams don’t have to be unreachable

We’re an online community that helps writers achieve their writing dreams. Whether that’s to make money, reach the top of a bestseller list, or just finish that book they've been working on for a decade.

Since it takes more than just great writing to build life-changing writing habits, we take a holistic approach. This means we cover the craft, mindset, and business skills you need to succeed.

If you’ve ever felt like your confidence is the size of a pea, you’ve got the concentration span of a puppy, or you’re just confused about what to do, our community is designed for you.

And when you join us, you can start anywhere you like. You can dive into the Facebook community and get your writing questions answered; you can watch previously recorded sessions to hone your skills, or you can join us for the latest live session.

Same writing problems, different creative solutions

Sticking with our goals can be difficult when they seem so far away. They don’t have to, though – accountability goes a long way to helping us achieve great things.

Quite often, what holds us back from our dreams is a lack of support. We don’t know where to go next, so we slam on the brakes and stop moving forwards. Don’t let that happen to you ever again.

Get advice – on whatever roadblock you’re facing – with our vibrant and supportive online community. It’s full of like-minded people who understand what you’re going through. And they’re just as invested in your dreams as you are.

Our accountability buddy system allows writers to motivate each other to get their writing done and work through whatever they’re struggling with. It’s helped members to finish first drafts, proofread their next piece, and even hit the publish button.

Having someone to rely on when things go wrong can be the difference between overcoming obstacles and achieving your goals, or letting those obstacles destroy you. Don’t let them. Let us lift you up when you need it. You’ve totally got this.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been writing for. You have something to share, and we want to help you share that with the world.

Testimonials

Helpful and encouraging

by Alexa Whitewolf, editor and fantasy author

I have 18 works to my name and I’ve always thought writing societies were more for beginners than experienced authors. I was wrong. And I am so glad I’ve landed in The Writing Society; the community is super helpful and encouraging (we all have those bad days!), the content is constantly growing, and best of all? You get to have input into what YOU want to learn.

And it’s not all focused on the theory of writing. It focuses on the writing as much as the writer. Mental health month was a huge benefit to me and I learned how to focus on my own well being, too.

The writing webinars not only cement my writing style, but they also give me new avenues to explore and expand upon. Give The Writing Society a shot whether you’re a new, intermediate, or advanced writer. You won’t regret it!

Motivation and inspiration

by E.V.Rivers, young adult fantasy writer

The Writing Society is user-friendly and has a very supportive community which has helped motivate and inspire me in my writing. It also has comprehensive/detailed information on all aspects of the writing journey such as researching, plotting, editing, etc.

Accountability and advice

by Silvia Lopez, editor and young adult fantasy writer

The hands-on and in-depth advice you get at The Writing Society is the best. With their help, I was able to sit still long enough to plot my fantasy novel, let alone write it! The accountability and advice is everything.

Plot problems? Characters not communicating?

Each month we dive deep into a different writing-related theme. This could be around the craft, such as planning and characterisation, the mindset, such as dealing with feedback and overcoming obstacles, or business, such as deciding how to publish – and even if you’re ready. You’ll finish the month armed, knowledgeable, and ready to take the next step with your writing.

These lessons are designed to break the writing and publishing process down into easy-to-digest chunks and teach you the skills you need to succeed in the world of writing.

What do you dream of?

Chasing our dreams can be intimidating. It can feel impossible. But it doesn’t have to be.

Imagine holding a finished copy of your book in your hands: the coarse feel of the paper, the chemical smell of the freshly printed ink, the appearance of your name on that sexy front cover.

What about seeing your name at the top of a bestseller list? Knowing that thousands of people have bought your book and are loving your characters and plot as much as you do?

And, the ultimate goal: saying goodbye to your day job once and for all. To be able to pay your mortgage with money you’ve earned from your creativity isn’t a pipe dream. It’s possible.

Our members have achieved all these things and more. And now we want to help you.

What members say...

Guidance, support, and encouragement

by Suzie Jones, teacher and playwright

Joining The Writing Society has been the catalyst that turned a whim - that I may write a play one day - into a reality. Quite simply, it's like joining a slimming club when you need to lose weight. You could slim down on your own, but it's much easier with guidance, support and encouragement. And so it is with writing. I'm no thinner but I have now written that play!

My writing improved significantly

Ellie Betts

I’ve been to many of (Society founder) Kristina’s workshops and my writing skills have improved significantly with her help. She has a way of teaching that makes things easy to understand and reassures you that you’ve totally got this whether you’ve been writing for years or you’re just starting out.

A gem of a community

Kirsty Patrick

As the world’s greatest procrastinator, I’ve never been able to focus enough to write a novel. The Writing Society has not only helped me to work around my busy schedule, it’s connected me with the most supportive group of people you could meet.

The accountability buddy system is especially fantastic, as my buddy checks in most days and has helped keep me firmly on track. It doesn’t matter what you are writing, this is a gem of a community I would recommend to anybody.

My confidence has grown

Mary Beth Bretzlauf

Not only am I learning, but it's reaffirming things I'm already doing. My confidence has grown.

FAQ

  • I'm only a beginner. Can I still benefit?

    Yes! Everyone has to start somewhere. Why not in a safe and supportive environment?

  • Will I benefit more when I have more experience?

    It doesn't matter where you are in your writing journey when you join us. You could have five minutes or five years' experience.

    It's our job to be your writerly GPS, helping you navigate the murky waters of the writing and publishing industry.

  • What if the monthly theme isn't for me?

    As a member, you don't just get access to that month's content. You also gain access to the Facebook group, plus all previous sessions, covering a variety of topics and skill sets. The sooner you join, the sooner you can dive in.

  • You can't make money writing, so what's the point?

    Says who? You wouldn't expect to grow in your day job without your boss investing in your career growth; why should your creative development be any different?

    Don't let society's fears of creativity and self expression hold you back. There are plenty of writers out there that make money from their creativity.

    Most of the reports on how little writers make don’t include indie authors or copywriters, both of whom can make four or more figures a month.

    The only limit to how much money you can make from writing is your commitment to doing it.

  • How does membership work?

    Membership is a monthly fee and you can cancel at any time. However, once you cancel, you lose access to all the course content and the Facebook community at the end of that month's payment period.

  • $15 per month sounds like a lot...

    You won’t find this much knowledge and advice – for this price – anywhere else. Most places charge hundreds or thousands of dollars to teach you just one of the subject areas we cover. We charge so little because of our unique subscription-based structure.

    New content is added all the time, and you can watch previous lessons whenever you like.

    If you’re serious about building a writing career, you have to have faith in your ability to grow and invest in your future. Why not start today?
