Course Overview

  • Be more productive

    Carving out space to experiment with different forms of writing will make you more productive on your main writing project. It all starts with just 5 minutes.

  • Be more innovative and creative

    Each video lesson teaches you an "Expressive Subject" writing prompt to try: open letters, digital poems, haiku and renga, poetic inquiry, stream of consciousness, and more.

  • Start and maintain a daily writing habit

    Creative cross-training is one of the best ways to establish and maintain a writing habit. It lets you reach your writing goals by managing the pitfalls of writer’s block or overwhelm.

You get instant access to:

  • A FREE copy of our book Expressive Subjects: 25 Writing Prompts to Unleash Your Creativity

  • 25 video lessons (~5 minutes each), which guide you through a quick creative process focused on a fun and accessible writing exercise

  • Lifetime access to the course so you can come back any time to get your writing engines going (plus get all future updates)

  • Access to a private Facebook group for motivation, support, and accountability
