Your Clear Path to Creating the Writing Life You’ve Dreamed Of

(or didn’t even know was possible)

The BEST Support System for Honing Your Craft, Serving Your Audience & Building Your Business

Whether you’ve been dreaming of publishing a book since the day you could hold a pencil or you’ve never considered yourself a true “writer,” if God has called you to write, then you ARE a writer! 

Bring your message and passion ( BONUS points if you love chickens!) and we will bring the structure, coaching, and community you need to take the next step to smash your writing goals.

When it comes to your writing life…

Are you tired of staring at a blank page & blinking cursor not knowing where to start? 

Or do you have so many ideas and so much input you feel paralyzed by overwhelm?

We get it! There IS a lot that goes into becoming the writer you are meant to be: 

Your platform. Your message. Your craft. 

How you connect with your audience.

PLUS, how in the world will you connect with the right agent and the right publisher and know when the time is right?

And mercy, how will you even find time to write and time to build your business when you’re:

 

  • Running teenagers to practice
  • Caring for aging parents
  • Still working 9-5
  • Just trying to remember to put something in the crock pot? (Did you move over the laundry?)

Okay, deep breath.

We know it feels like a lot because it IS a lot. 

Writing today isn’t simply hunkering down all alone and pouring your story onto a page. Then POOF! You’re published.

If you’re like most of us, there is no secret hideaway waiting for you and open-ended weeks to make your writing dreams a reality. 

Instead, you’re trying to fit your writing life 

into the margins of your REAL LIFE.

(and the squeeze is TIGHT!)

It feels near impossible! 

To boot, writers are expected to have:

  •  An active online presence 
  • An engaged audience
  • Savvy marketing skills 
  • A growing email list (How’s your helpful and heartwarming newsletter?) 
  • Perfectly polished prose or fiery fiction 
  • A unique book hook
  • And don’t forget the in-depth promotion plan! 

Is the weight of expectations giving you a chronic crick in the neck?

HERE’S THE DEAL:

Because you care…

Because you’re passionate and excited…

Because you want to steward your God-given dreams well…

You’ve probably been TRYING REALLY HARD to build your writing life on your own. You’ve probably listened to podcasts or signed up for courses.

Maybe you’ve been to a conference (or been saving up to go because, cha-ching, they can be pricey). 

You’re probably following other authors, stalking their social media or reading books, trying to figure out how in the world others seem to juggle ALL THE THINGS with the sparkle of success, while you’re over here sweating and exhausted like you just weeded an overgrown garden or cleaned out a chicken coop. 

…rather than feeling energized by your progress, you feel more overwhelmed by all you haven’t done, 

more alone in all you haven’t figured out, and more discouraged, wondering if this writer’s life is actually for you.

Here’s the really good news:

The story you’ve been living in doesn’t have to be the one you continue to write. 

Overwhelmed is not your story. 

Alone is not your story.

Stuck is not your story!

IMAGINE THIS INSTEAD: 

✅ You have a clear structure for making progress in every area of your writing life. 

✅ You discover that your limited time is actually NOT a limitation when you learn how to prioritize your writing and integrate it into your real life.

✅ You feel excited AND confident knowing you are working on the right thing at the right time, systematically  growing in the areas that are important to get published.

✅ You have  access to industry experts who have been where you are and know the path to getting where you want to go–and they are thrilled to show you how!

✅ You are part of a dynamic and welcoming community of Christian writers who understand your struggles and are committed to supporting one another.

✅ You are personally known and encouraged in every step of your writing journey!

✅ You know exactly what to do and when to do it – no more sifting through endless advice or wondering if you’re wasting your time.

Having THIS level of structure &

support changes everything…

“Surpassed my expectations in every way”

“If I were to write one sentence about my experience it would be this:

The Red House Writers Collective surpassed my expectations in every way. More trainings and resources than I expected. More flexibility for busy people, just what I needed. More support from Kathi Lipp and a great team of mentors and coaches than I dared dream of. More encouragement and accountability built right in.

As a result, I am making MORE progress toward my personal writing goals! Would I sign up again? Absolutely.

Michele Pryse

Southern Oregon

“Changed things for me and freed me”

“The Collective is helping me figure out this weird creative life – right in the middle of family, friends, work, and all the other things I’m trying to squeeze my writing between. Hearing from top industry experts and published authors like Barb Roose share the inside scoop of how she actually prioritizes all the components of her writing career made me go, ‘Oh, okay! I can set more realistic expectations for myself while still working with excellence.’ That really changed things for me and freed me.”

Susan Macias

San Antonio, Texas

“The tools you didn’t know you needed”

“What I really love about The Collective is that it gave me more structure with my time and made writing a priority for me. My favorite part is the Campfire Write Alongs because they give me automatic, huge chunks of dedicated writing time. In order to be a successful writer you need to have a community. The Collective is a really good community because it provides structure and instruction, as well as opportunities to be with people in the process. It gives you the tools you didn’t know you needed.”

Lisa Woolery

Stilwell, Kansas

Here’s what these writers have discovered firsthand:

  • Going it alone isn’t working.
  • Guessing which step is the next right step isn’t working.
  • Wondering what editors and agents are actually looking for isn’t working.

But there IS something that DOES WORK!

A supportive writing community with a proven path-to-publishing  process is the FASTEST way to build, grow, and launch your writing career. 

(and have FUN and feel ENCOURAGED while doing it!)

There are so many aspects to being a writer in today’s ever-evolving market.

Writers who try to navigate this exciting (albeit slightly crazy) journey alone are as sane as hikers trekking through the dense forest…  in a blizzard… alone… without a compass to guide them, a friend to rely on, or a cozy blanket to warm them. 

They might make it out alive, but they will be battered from the journey and not likely to jump back on the trail anytime soon. 

The same is true for a writer who tries to brave the publishing elements alone. 

You’re sure to walk in circles, get blisters from traversing up a mountain you didn’t even need to climb, and end up no closer to your desired destination despite all the time and energy you sacrificed.

BUT….

🧭 A program with a clear structure is like a compass faithfully pointing you north toward your dream destination.

🥾 A program with industry-expert coaches is like a team of trustworthy trail guides, cutting through all the brush and reminding you that YOU CAN DO IT.

🔥 A program with an authentic, welcoming community is like sitting around a campfire, soaking in the warmth and encouragement your tired bones and weary soul need to get back up and keep going.

Hey friend, Kathi Lipp here.

I’m a best-selling author and speaker who has helped thousands of writers transform their dream of writing into a reality with my podcast, coaching, workshops, and conferences. 

A few years ago, my husband and I ditched our Silicon Valley lives (and condo) and I now work full-time helping writers live out their calling as mission-driven messengers, all from this magical place called The Red House.

In between feeding my high-personality chickens and making another pot of garden-fresh soup, I work with top publishers like Zondervan and Harvest House to write books (20, so far!). I get off the mountain when I travel around the country to speak, but I always love coming back to The Red House, especially when it’s time to  host cozy writing retreats here at my mini homestead in Northern California.

But my writing career has not always been on track.

There were a lot of years when I struggled to get words on the page. And when I finally sat down and wrote, I didn’t have an audience or a publisher who was interested in reading any of it. And all the while, I was spending more money to support my writing habit than I was making.

I had to make a decision – was this writing thing actually a call from God, something I was supposed to commit a big part of my life to? Or was it something I was doing just for myself?

I realized that I was called to write, and  I wanted that writing to change lives.

And that is when I discovered the one thing that actually made a difference in not just my writing, but my platform and in my business:

The Collective Check-in.

I started meeting (in person and online) with people who didn’t just talk about wanting to be writers, but were actually out there doing the work to get published. These were people who didn’t let problems get in their way for long – they knew they were called to not only write, but  share their writing with others, and build a life (and even a business) around their writing.

The Collective Check-In kept me focused on what actually needed to be done, instead of listening to the thousands of voices in this space trying to convince me of the hundreds of things that could be done.

When I started to meet with other writers, make plans for growing my business and ministry, and holding each other to a higher standard, things started to happen. Fast.

  • I started to write online. And then for magazines. And then, books. 
  • I grew my online platform into something that publishers were excited about.
  • I launched a successful podcast, and then a Facebook group with over 15,000 members.
  • Most importantly? I started to see people’s lives change for the better.

…it was more than I could have ever dreamed.

So here’s the thing: I am not an anomaly! 

This system of CONSISTENT support, accountability, and community can lead to INCREDIBLE GROWTH  for any writer who is willing to prioritize their writing life and keep showing up. 

If you’ve been thinking about what it would take to really professionalize your writing…

If you have a story that you know would be an encouragement (maybe even life-changing) to others…

If you want to start changing the world with your words, while building a sustainable business…

Then, RIGHT NOW, I have a plan that will show you how.

I’m so excited to introduce you to my online coaching program, 

The Red House Writers Collective.

It’s a day-by-day roadmap that shows you EXACTLY what to do to increase your writing (ramp up that word-count, baby!), prepare yourself for publication, and even build a business you love in the process!

Now let’s break it down even more so you know EXACTLY what you’re going to get…

The Course

Our team will help you develop the skills you need in our 3 focus areas: 

#1 CREATE (aka writing)

#2  SERVE (aka platform)

#3 BUILD (aka all things business) 

You will receive your hiking orders for the month and all the support you need along the way to accomplish your goals. 

In a strategic 3-month cycle, you will focus on a different aspect of your writing business to help you grow into the author you want to become. 

Month 1

Focus on the actual writing – this is where we help you get words on the page. You’ll learn not just about the craft of writing, but how to be consistent in your writing every day. 

(The secret sauce of professional writers blowing the lid off what they thought was possible, like a popcorn popper over a campfire.)

Month 2

Focus on platform – this is where we will set goals for you and support you in achieving those goals when it comes to growing an audience that wants to read what you write.

(This will feel like breathing in that fresh mountain air you didn’t know you needed, reviving your love for your future readers and your resolve to serve them well.)

Month 3

Get down to business – this is where we will not only help you dream about what you want your writing business to look like, but will provide the structure, guidance, and motivation you need to make those dreams a reality.

(Three cheers for not having to figure out the nuts and bolts of business building on your own!)

Months 4-12

We will repeat this 3-month cycle throughout the year.

(Practice makes progress. Progress leads to publication!)

Join the dedicated 3-hour Zoom meeting, work on a project of our choosing, come together each hour with fellow writers to share what you just accomplished in the previous hour and what you hope to accomplish in the coming hour. 

 This is one of our members FAVORITE FEATURES and we know you will LOVE getting a lot of words written around the “campfire” too.

The Check-Ins

Yep – daily check-ins in our private Red House Writers Collective Facebook Group will keep you on task and focused –  at your own pace toward your own clarified writing & business goals.  

 Your success is our success! We want this to be a win for everyone.

STOP Fearing That….

🛑 You’re wasting your time on writing.

🛑 Your platform will never get big enough to get your writing out into the world.

🛑 Nobody really wants to hear what you have to say anyway.

And START Trusting That….

✅ Your story, your voice matter and are exactly what the world needs!

✅ You CAN learn the skills and get the support you need to sustainably grow your audience and attract quality publishers!

✅ Your refined message and clear business strategy will position you to get your words out to the people who are looking for exactly what you’re writing!

With the Writing at the Red House Collective, after just 12 months, you will have:

  • Written enough words to complete a full manuscript, plus blog articles and social media posts.
  • Worked with a coach to increase your online platform every single day.
  • Started a business based on the message you’ve been called to share.
  • Worked with experts in every area of your writing career.
  • Found your people! You will be surrounded by writers who are not your competition – they will become your community.

So How Much Does This Kind of Incredible 

Coaching, Accountability, & Community Cost?

(The question we know is at the top of every writer’s mind.)

CONSIDER THESE ALTERNATIVE CHOICES:
>>> If you invested in enough in-person conferences to gain the industry knowledge you’ll receive in our 12-month program, you would spend tens of thousands of dollars in conference and travel fees.
You’d also  have to take time away from home and work (which costs you even more), and you still wouldn’t have received the personal attention, guided goal setting and goal smashing,  or have guaranteed your word count production.
>>>If you invested in one-on-one coaching from a top-level writing coach  for 12 months, you’re again looking at paying thousands upon thousands of dollars. In this scenario, you’d likely also need to hire a separate business coach and a social media/publishing coach to help you monetize your growing writing skills and position yourself with the kind of platform publishers expect.
Plus, you would still be doing the daily grind alone and be missing out on the invaluable benefit of The Collective Check-In (that career-changing step Kathi talked about earlier!).
>>>You could also choose to keep going down the writer’s road alone. You could read more books and listen to more podcasts, sifting through ALL the noise, wondering what you should really be working on and making  minimal progress toward your actual goals.

But why would you choose to spend more to get less 

when you could get EVERYTHING YOU NEED to become the writer you were meant to be with

“A totally different mindset… I’m growing!”

You have to make an investment in order to progress your goals to the next stage. And sometimes that investment helps you sharpen your goals. I’ve seen through The Collective that I really do want to write, I really enjoy writing, and I feel God has a call for my writing beyond just having it be my own internal processing.

The Collective has both equipped and motivated me to really build a writer’s life. Before being part of this dynamic community and receiving top-notch coaching, it was easy to think I could just tack on my writing in the spare margins of my life, and think I could actually make progress. But that’s just not reality. Now I have a totally different mindset about what it takes to grow as a writer and I’m growing!”

-Kim Platt

Wales, United Kingdom

“I have finally found my people!”

“After 10 years of going it alone as a 4 times traditionally published author and speaker, it has been an incredible blessing to know I’m not alone in this writing journey to which I have been called. 

In The Red House Write’s Collective, I have finally found my people! The friendship, encouragement, insights, advice, and community I’ve found at The Collective have lit my fire and helped me forge ahead to accomplish more in one year than I ever would have on my own.

-Rhonda Stoppe

Patterson, California

“Robust in support… go at your own pace”

“The Collective is robust in its support, but it really allows you to go at your own pace. This program  is absolutely worth the investment! When you fully engage and give it everything you’ve got, you’re going to see tremendous progress in your writing. And if there are times you don’t put much into it, that’s okay. Just don’t give up, don’t stop. This community is here to help and support you.

The Red House Writers Collective is: Extremely valuable. Ridiculously reasonable.

-Cheryl Price

Sanger, California

“Accomplish more in six months than over six years!”

“Being involved in the Red House Writers Collective has made a big difference in my life. It is the difference between sheepishly saying, “I would like to try being a writer” and saying in faith “I am a writer for the Lord. Between the encouragement, the advice, the feeling that we are all pursuing our callings together, and the accountability, being involved in The Collective has helped me accomplish more in six months than I have previously accomplished over six years. Of course, The Collective does not automatically make this happen. But in my case, it has helped me turn off the TV and focus on building a writing career.”

-Mark Drinnenberg

(Like we said, we want The Collective to be a WIN for everyone!)

You’ve Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!

Is this a monthly cost?

No! $799 is your payment for the whole year. Can you believe it? One single payment and you’re good to go for 12 full months. And your annual renewal rate will never go up.

What if I don’t have the money?

If this investment is going to make it challenging for you to pay rent or put food on the table, then it’s not the right time for you. But, if it’s just a bit of stretch, then putting a little sacrificial skin in the game might be exactly what you need to really commit to your writing.

Who is The Collective for?

The Red House Writers Collective is for any published or unpublished writer who is either focused on the Christian market or identifies as a Christian and wants to be part of a faith-based writing community.

When are the live coaching calls & what if I can’t make it?

The live coaching sessions take place at all different times throughout the month. So chances are excellent that at least a few will work with your schedule! Because we serve a worldwide community, we know that the challenges of various time zones and commitments may preclude writers from attending all sessions live. THAT’S OKAY! All coaching calls will be recorded and you can watch them at your pace,

I don’t really consider myself a “writer.” Is The Collective still for me?

Labels don’t matter with us! As long as you want to learn more about writing, this is the place for you!

Will I actually make progress or is this just another course that over promises and under delivers?

When you choose to follow the structure provided, lean into the community accountability and support offered, and implement the skills and strategies you’re learning, you can’t help BUT make progress!

I am already a published author but I’m looking for support on my next project. Can The Collective also help an established writer?

Absolutely! We have multi-published authors who have LOVED being part of The Collective and have reported significant growth in all areas of their writing career. The publishing industry is constantly changing; our coaches offer the most up-to-date info and insight!

Remind me again what I get with The Red House Writers Collective membership?

With pleasure! Your Collective membership gives you 12 months of access to The Course, The Coaches, The Campfire, The Check-Ins, and The Community. That means you get everything you need to CREATE incredible content, SERVE your audience as you  grow your platform, and BUILD a business around your writing! Yep, ALL of that for only $799 for the whole year!

Tell me more about The Community. What does that look like?

Great question! We know writing can be a lonely journey, so we do what we can to help you feel supported all year long. One way we do this is through our private members-only Facebook group. The Facebook group is where you will find all membership resources, coaching calls, and regular check-ins. This is also your homebase to ask questions, share ideas, and cultivate lasting friendships with other writers in the program! All of our coaching calls and Write-Alongs take place on Zoom, so you can be in the room with our team and with each other. Finally, we have a membership portal (not on Facebook) to give you easy access to all resource downloads and session recordings.

I have a question that still hasn’t been addressed. Who can I ask?

We’re here for you! Just drop us a line at info@WritingAtTheRedHouse.com with your question and someone from our team will happily respond within 24 hours!

Read this before you go…

Dear Friend,

We are all part of a greater community called by God to change the world through our writing – yes, that includes YOU!

There is nothing I would love more than to get to know you, support you, and equip you to reach your God-given goals and impact lives through your words. 

I love this program because I know it is EXACTLY what aspiring and working writers need. I promise it’s not just pie in the sky “you can do it” false positivity. But we’re also not taskmasters. The Collective Coaches are the BEST experts in the business who also possess the superpower of encouragement! 

This means we are constantly working to make sure that writers have a realistic view of what it takes to get published, but also the encouragement and cheering to make. it. happen! HUZZAH! 

The Red House Writers Collective makes me super happy. I just know you’ll feel the same way. 

I’m already so proud of you!
