Guess what people don't want to do forever? Things that make them feel weird.
After three years of building this community, we’ve discovered writers quit when they don't have:
If sharing your writing makes you feel weird, you won’t do it. We beg you to reconsider.
As a hope*writer member, we'll help you identify where you are on the writing path and give you the tools and direction you need to move to the next stage in your writing and publishing journey.
Start small and celebrate progress by identifying and accepting where you are on the writing journey.
Move at your own pace through your particular stage with provided checklists and benchmarks
Participate in our project-centric writer small groups we call hope*circles for support, ideas, and accountability.
"The work you're doing inside hope*writers is so important. You're helping so many writers which, in turn, helps us in the publishing industry to have so much good, quality content. I've gotten proposals from hope*writers that are so good it's slowing down my process!"
We take serious the creative, social, and spiritual call to the deep work of sharing our stories and ideas with the people who need them the most.
We believe this because words have changed our worlds, shaped our narratives, and brought us back to life.
You need a go-to place and a solid plan with people who are doing the work and can respond directly to your questions about writing, publishing, and launching your work without going crazy.
Working alone is for hobbyists. If you’re ready to stop dabbling and become a writer who writes words people want to read, join us.
“Two years ago I was lost, discouraged and wondering whether to pack it all in.
With the teaching, practical help and encouragement I found at hope*writers I've felt understood, believed in and equipped.
At hope*writers I’ve found my people.
I now have a book deal and I couldn’t have done it without my hope*writers family.”
Niki Hardy, first book under contract with Revell Books
"For years I treated writing like a once-in-a-while hobby.
I now have writing hours each week, send out a weekly email to my subscribers, completed a book proposal and published two Bible studies.
I could not have completed these things without the accountability, inspiration, and encouragement I've found here."
Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young, Author and Speaker
"This is an incredibly rich community of smart, insightful, creative writers. I especially value the generous spirit of the community – hosts Emily, Gary, and Brian, as well as the guest teachers and members, are always willing to share their expertise and offer helpful advice.
Even as a seasoned writer, I consistently learn valuable marketing and writing strategies from fellow hope*writers. This community is truly an invaluable resource to writers at every stage, and I am grateful to be a member!"
Michelle DeRusha, Author of Katharina and Martin Luther

"I had joined a similar group in the past, but felt lost in the crowd. Hope*writers is such a warm, encouraging, humble community!"
"I absolutely would not be where I am or come how far I’ve come if not for this community. My expectations have been far surpassed. This is the only membership subscription I have to anywhere."
"I have made some great writing friends, mentors, and prayer partners who truly understand the writing life, and sharpen me while giving me grace. It is the most worthwhile subscription I have ever tried."
"It is a true community - one which shares in troubles and successes. It is where I come to share things about my work but also to check in with others. I have definitely been more focused and consistent in my work because of hope*writers."
We reject the myth that writing is a solitary act and believe our best work is done when we know we are safe, we are seen, and we are supported.
We are wholeheartedly committed to being writers who choose connection over comparison.
We work hard to cultivate a no-self-promotion zone among members so the valuable conversation and curious questions don’t get lost in countless threads of outside links and sales pitches. Nope. Keeping our group uncluttered and focused is a high priority.
Enrollment is closed for the season so we can focus on serving our current members. To get on the waitlist and be the first to know when we re-open for new members, enter your info below:
