Level 1

Level 2

Level 3 (SOLD OUT)

Are you ready to take your writing project seriously?

You’ve been writing for a while.

Yes, you leave your writing for periods of time but you keep coming back to it.

It won’t leave you alone.

It might be a blog or a book or a personal essay or a memoir or a workbook.

Whatever it is, it keeps waking you up at 3 a.m. crying, “It’s time! Write me now!” – but then you can get lost in all your material, confused how to structure your project, suddenly sure it’s already been written, or unsure what you are actually doing.

Then your life conveniently gets busy and the project gets put on the shelf again.

Is it time to try something different?

To take your project seriously?

To get the learning, support, guidance and feedback to move your important work forward? Perhaps even finish?

There may be lots of things you don’t know about your project yet, but one thing you do know is that you must heed your call to write it now and you must share you work or you will forever regret it.

If you ready to truly devote the time and energy needed to shape and share your project – so that your readers experience the ahas or laughter or insight you want to share, so your business can grow, or your ideas can spread, or your story can heal others…

Then welcome to Write Better in Community: The Non-Fiction Mastermind, with best-selling and award winning author Jen Louden.

Crafting a project that others want to read and share is incredibly hard work and one of the most rewarding things you will do in your life.

And it’s impossible to do it alone.

What you are invited to in this mastermind is a real commitment.

It is not about talent (trust me talent means zip), it is about devotion.

I’m delighted to announce the next cohort of

Feedback and coaching from a multi-published best-selling author (that’s me) and a smart group of writers who will be as invested in your success as you are. And some days - even more!

And so many other projects, like…

An executive coach published regularly to LinkedIn to thousands of views per post.

An article in Harvard Business Review was published to a rousing response and has now become a book from a major publisher.

A card deck on its way to the printer.

A textbook written and a deal secured with a top publisher.

Personal essays written and submitted to various venues and magazines.

Significant breakthroughs on writing regularly, making it through the slough of why bother, and truly understanding "Oh yes I am a writer and I can do this!"

Here’s How Write Better in Community Works

12 WEEKLY GROUP COACHING CALLS

Every Monday we gather for group coaching, accountability, brainstorming, and courage-building. Please plan for 60 minutes for each Monday* call. All calls are optional but highly fantastic. 

Optional rotating hot seats will be assigned each week to get targeted coaching on your project from Jen. 

In-between calls we check in as often as you like (daily!) using an easy-to-use platform (not Facebook).  

All coaching calls are 9 am – 10 am MT. Calls will be held on:

  • September 12, 19 and 26
  • October 3, 10, 21 and 31
  • November 7, 14, 21, 29
  • December 5, 12

*We will have one coaching call on Tuesday, November 29 to allow a bit more time for the Thanksgiving break.

4 VIRTUAL WRITING RETREATS + WRITING WORKSHOP

September 14th 9 to 12:30
Clarify your Idea and Find Your Hook — zero in on the unique angle of your material and get clear on what you will be writing this fall. Yes you do have a unique angle, you just have to be willing to name it boldly and I will help you do that.

4 Retreats
Enjoy a deep dive of brief meditation, trickster prompts to uncover and focus your ideas, and craft Q & A. You will get so much done!

You do not have to attend every retreat or stay for the entire session but it’s amazingly wonderful if you can set aside this time for a true retreat with your writing and the group.

Our virtual retreats will be:

  • September 15th
  • October 17, 19, and 21: 9 am – 12 pm MT
  • November 16: 9 am – 12 pm MT
  • December 9: 9 am – 12 pm MT

WEEKLY MINI-CLASSES

The entire curriculum of my fantastic writing course Write Now will be delivered to you weekly. My very best time-tested ideas for making writing easier and better. The sum of 30 years of studying and teaching writing. 

SILENT WRITING TIME - EVERY TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY

These calls are “self” hosted as in the Zoom room starts and stops as if by elf magic! Times will be determined based on the makeup of our cohort.

ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER

Every four weeks we assign you a new one-on-one accountability partner to email on Monday morning your exact writing goals for the week and to check-in how things went the previous week. We will also check in on our Monday calls about your weekly progress.

WRITING LIBRARY

My best resources for writing all kinds of nonfiction. We will add to the library as your questions arise. You can download what you want to keep.

OPTIONAL PEER READING

Using a method developed by Peter Elbow with my additions, you will swap up to 7 pages each week with a different peer.

We will discuss in more depth how it works on our first call and you can decide if you want to participate. Past members have found this an incredibly valuable extra.

BONUS EXPERT PRESENTATIONS

You’ll receive access to our past guest expert sessions including Jane Friedman on publishing, Allison K Williams on platform, and Ruth Bullivant on comp titles. Plus, we have a new guest for the fall session… Joanna Penn! Joanna is an award-nominated, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with over 30 books. I’ve sold over 600,000 copies in 162 countries and 5 languages. She’ll teach you how to write, publish and market your book — and make a living with your writing.

Need more support? Consider joining the mastermind at Level TWO where you will also get:

EDITORIAL FEEDBACK

Getting editorial feedback on your writing as you go can help you avoid some of the common missteps that cause writing projects to fail. 

A big reason projects don’t work is the writer doesn’t know how to focus on who the project is truly for, how it serves, and what the point of the project is – why should someone care? Another big reason projects fail is they lack structure and organization — and the writing process is disorganized as well. 

Jen will read 3 pieces of writing for your project during the mastermind session, up to 10 pages each deadline. These editorial feedback check points will offer peace of mind that you’re on the right track so you can keep going with greater confidence.

Looking for even more one-on-one support from Jen? Consider joining the mastermind at Level THREE for:

WEEKLY EDITORIAL FEEDBACK

Having eyes on your work every week from someone familiar with exactly what it takes to not only complete a project but also produce a project that has the intended outcome you want can make a real difference in your writing experience. No more questioning every step you make, getting stuck, or wishing a professional who actually knows what they’re doing would be available to take a look. 

Every week, there’s time set aside for Jen to look at YOUR project and provide pointed yet gentle and reassuring feedback. It’ll keep you on track throughout the mastermind session.

ONE-ON-ONE COACHING WITH JEN

You’ll get two hour-long, one-on-one coaching sessions with Jen during the mastermind session. 

This is your chance to receive individualized guidance, advice, and encouragement to take your project where you want it to go. Doing the writing is one thing but working through exactly how the project will help you accomplish a bigger goal is another. In your private coaching sessions with Jen, she will help you refine your own personal writing process, map out a plan for how to achieve what you really want to accomplish, or whatever would be most helpful for you in the moment.

My wish for you…

I want to support you to make your biggest, juiciest, most important writing and creating goals a reality.

I want to offer you my highest level of knowledge, commitment, and energy.

I want to nurture you, push you, and cheer you to go farther, make more progress, and to see your voice beautifully, truthfully expressed more than ever before.

I want to help you take all that is inside of you and share it with your corner of the world.

Over my 30 years of being a professional writer, I have cobbled together so many resources and so much knowledge to support myself and other writers in thriving and succeeding. I cannot wait to draw on all that I have paid to learn – in money, confusion, and time – to help you flourish faster, farther, and more than you can possibly imagine now.

That is what happens when you work with me and this group. You will look back and be amazed, proud, and glowing with accomplishment.

I so wish someone had offered me a group like this when I was writing my first book or my last one. I cannot wait to see the genius that this group will create together, for one and for all.

Decide with care, but don’t delay. Spots will fill quickly and then, we are off!
