#1: Studio Membership

Your keys to the Inspired Writers Studio. Here, you'll remember that you're not alone on the writing journey, find your best path through the writing process, and set intentions that lead you to your goals.


You'll have access to a members-only website, a private Facebook group, weekly writing prompts, goal setting exercises, community discussions and coaching through video feeds and Q&A sessions. All designed around monthly themes to help you get comfortable with your own creative process and trust yourself as a writer.

#2: The Writers Lab

Get ready to experiment! In the Writers Lab, you'll have access to everything the Inspired Writers Studio has to offer, plus virtual writing sessions designed to have fun with writing and get you in the flow.


Alissa will use prompts and the monthly theme to help you build your writing "muscle." Writing has a way of leading to more writing, and these sessions will teach you how to get focused, get in the flow and have fun along the way. 


Sign up for only $17.97 per month:

#3: The Writer's Toolbox

You love the community of The Inspired Writers Studio and the dedicated writing time of The Writer's Lab, but you want all the tools you can get to grow as a writer. How about a whole "box" of them?


When you feel stuck, worry that you're not doing things the "right way" or want to dig into the elements of your stories a little deeper, you can use The Writer's Tool Box to find the right tool for the job. From worksheets and guides to audio recordings, we're always adding to the toolbox, which means it will grow as you do. You'll also have access to a library of Writer's Lab monthly sessions and a 10% discount on WritingStrides workshops (not to mention all the benefits of being a member). 


Why wait? Go for it! Only $26.97 a month. Or, commit to a year to really move your writing forward. Only $297—or one month free.


Like you, I love writing—it adds meaning and purpose to my life. There's nothing like being in the flow, the story unfolding and the words growing on the page.


And yet. There are days when it doesn't flow. When I question whether I'm approaching a project the right way. Or if the story is any good. 


Experience has taught me that this doubt is not the voice of reason. It's simply part of the process. But that doesn't make it easy to navigate. To stay on track, I rely on my writing partner and friends, as well as the tools I've created for clients over the years.


Support makes all the difference, which is why I created the Inspired Writers Studio.


It's a place where writers can come together and share both the struggles and joys of writing. A place to help you get in the flow and trust the writing process.


I handpicked the most successful parts of my online WritingStrides programs and brought them together under one "roof" so you can grow your writing. Join us!

Do I need to be a certain kind of writer to join? 
All creative writers are welcome! Whether you want to figure out what to write, are delving into the world of short stories or want to write and complete a book, you'll find yourself at home in the Inspired Writers Studio. 


You will find that the resources (particularly the Writers Lab and the Writer's Toolbox) are geared toward creative writing and storytelling, but I find that those are elements of all writing, from self-help to romance. And many of the tools in the basic Studio Membership are focused on how to show up at the page... something we can all use some help with now and again!

FAQ:

What do you mean that the Writer's Toolbox is always growing? 
When you join the Studio at the Writer's Toolbox membership level, you'll gain immediate access to the tools that are already there: worksheets on creating believable characters, what it means to have a clear and focused writing process and many others. Over time, I'll add new tools based on your requests, what works well in my workshops, and other new developments at WritingStrides. Plus, you'll find a growing library of recordings of the Writer's Lab writing sessions, so you can pop in anytime you need a nudge to get writing. It's like a DIY kit of resources that grows just as you do!

How do I join the Inspired Writers Studio? 
Just click on the membership level that best fits you and your writing dreams. You'll be redirected to a registration and payment page. Once you sign up, you'll receive a welcome email outlining what you can expect between now and when doors open on September 5. Your first payment will not go through until September, when the studio opens. Your card will automatically be charged on an annual or monthly basis depending on the membership you select.

Can I change levels after I join? 
Absolutely. You'll find a tab on the Inspired Writers Studio homepage that will direct you to your membership details. 

When will the Writers Lab virtual sessions be held? 
The great thing about the virtual writing sessions is that you don't have to attend live. I'll post a recording once a month, and the session will be live for 10 days so you can do it as your schedule allows. Why only 10 days? Well, let's be honest. So many of us are procrastinators at heart... I'm here to help you write, not put off writing! And don't forget, when you join at the Writer's Toolbox membership level, you'll have access to a growing library of all Writers Lab sessions, yours to access anytime and even download.

Can I cancel my membership? 
Monthly subscribers can cancel, though we'll miss you! 

You'll do this through the same membership page described above. If you opt for the annual Writer's Toolbox membership level, we ask that you only do so if you're committed to a full year of writing support. The best writing happens over time, and that option is best for writers ready and excited to put in that time.

How do I know if the Studio is right for me? 
The Inspired Writers Studio is a great opportunity if you love to write, but sometimes wish you had more support and confidence. The Studio is all about learning to trust your own creative process and having a community of fellow writers to grow and learn alongside.

What kinds of writers will I meet in the studio? 
You can expect to meet writers a lot like you and me. They're working on (or want to be working on) short stories, essays, memoirs, novels... whatever form of creative writing that speaks to them. Or, they just love writing and want to figure out what they want to write over time. But they're also living their lives, whether that means raising their kids, managing their careers, figuring out what it means to be retired, or reinventing themselves after their kids leave the nest. They're here to feel inspired, get writing, and connect with other writers.

Do I need a Facebook page to benefit from the Studio? 
Yes. We'll be using a private Facebook group to "meet up" with each other. If you need help setting up a page, just email us and we'll be glad to help.
