The Writer's Welcome Kit

The Writer’s Welcome Kit is what I wish I’d had when starting out.

  • The interactive Kit includes ten essential templates in Word and Excel to kickstart your writing life, plus 100 links to websites useful to writers.

  • Unlike in-person classes, you can complete the Kit on your own schedule from anywhere in the world.

  • All material was written, developed, and designed by me.

The Kit includes:

A 100-page e-course workbook. Chapters include: How to Start, Your Writing Practice, Your Reading Practice, Your Writer’s Craft, Your Writing Business, and Your Writing Life.

Audio interviews with advice from New York Times best-selling and award-winning authors such as Jess Walter, Peter Mountford, Claire Dederer, and Jane Wong.

Templates for editing stories, creating complex characters, and tracking story submissions. These templates mimic the documents a professional writer develops over the course of his or her career to maintain organization.

100 bookmarks to sites helpful for writers, including literary magazines, online writing tools, and free access to ebooks. New writers might not know all there is out there to help them in their careers.

100 flashcards to finally learn grammar and literary devices in an online interactive flashcard app. Learning these terms will really help you feel like a writer dedicated to the craft.

100 writing prompts to guide your freewriting sessions and freewrite in characters’ voices. These prompts are provocative enough to get you writing, and general enough to be reusable.

Your purchase supports a good cause.

Half the sales from the Writer's Welcome Kit goes to support the non-profit Hugo House, which provides classes and other literary support to the Seattle writing community. We also donate every 10th Kit to a writer needs a scholarship. If you would like to apply, please contact me here.
