You know you want to make a living from your writing. What you don't know is how to get started.
At The Writing Society, we'll teach you all the steps you need whether you're just starting out, about to publish, or feel like your first book was a failure.
We've got lessons on crafting page-turning plots, making your characters three-dimensional, surviving the literary landscape, and much more.
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.
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.
Helpful and encouraging
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
Accountability and advice
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.
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.

My writing improved significantly
A gem of a community
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.
