Everything Memoir

Do you have a true story to write? Learn from industry experts and featured writers in residence, Susy Flory and Kathi Lipp, as they take you through the ins and outs of crafting your unique true story and how to best share you and your story the world.

Book Mapping

Does the idea of writing a book feel overwhelming? Do you find yourself struggling to know where to start? You’re not alone. What you need is a proven plan. And trusted guides to help you apply it.

Is there a book on your heart?

  • What is keeping you from completing (or starting) the book that’s been on your heart and mind (maybe for years…)? 
  • Does God keep prompting you to write, but you keep putting it off until you “have time”?
  • Would time away with professional writers (and no dishes) make a difference when it comes to making progress? 
  • And what about spending time away talking, connecting, and dreaming with other writers?
