Have you heard of Hope*Writers?
After years of standing on the sidelines peering in, I finally joined Hope*Writers because I was ready to admit I wanted to write. It was the right time.
HopeWriters costs $47/month (though there are also annual and lifetime options) which is significant, but as an investment in my personal and professional development, especially in this season as a stay-at-home mom, it’s well worth the money.
I view Hope*Writers as an apprenticeship (instead of a membership) because it’s all about the opportunity to learn alongside other writers and the word implies a sense of time spent learning. Sometimes I choose my own lesson and sometimes I get to look over someone else’s shoulder as they learn. There’s space to experiment, time to be in progress, and knowledge to glean from all of it.
I can’t master or incorporate everything available in the HW library right away, but I can stay in the workshop – use all the tools, ask all the questions, eavesdrop on other people’s questions, and make friends who are on the same path.
It’s a commitment, but this long-term apprenticeship is working for me.
If you’ve been hoping to write, this might be exactly what you need, too.
What Stage are you? Try the Quiz! Hopewriters became really worthwhile for me when they created this path. It’s the reason I finally joined.
A few more useful (and Free) resources to check out:
- A writing challenge (with prompts and a prize!) on Instagram this week. Sign up here!
- A replay of the free webinar with Emily P. Freeman called How to Start (or Restart) Writing in 2020
- 10 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Write a Book (PDF Download)
I share all this with you because I want you to know about this useful resource if you need it! It is the best writing support group. Especially if you are a christian. I appreciate and feel blessed by the content and effort the Hope*Writers team puts into helping and supporting all the writers in the group.
Also, just to be transparent, if you do sign up, I will receive a percentage kickback as an affiliate. Maybe someday my writing might pay for my membership thanks to friends joining alongside me.
For now, I am paying out of pocket, just like you might be.
Let me know if you have any questions!
