Yo, writer friends—let’s hang out behind the scenes and work together to be the change we hope to see

My inbox is often teeming with inquiries from people who have questions about writing.

In case you have some questions too, here’s how it works. If you write, you’re a writer. So glad I could clear that up for you.

Ok, Jodie. But then what?

Great question! I can lead you to straight to the answer. To that question and to any others you have. Follow me, loves, I’ll show you where I get all the best answers to all my writer questions.

Hope*Writers is an experienced collective dedicated to meeting you where you’re at as a writer and then helping you learn how to move on to the next stage—and they’re opening their doors to new members next week! They only do so a few times year, so now is the time to take a look at what they offer you as a writer.



Hey, what stage writer are you, anyway?

Not sure? Didn’t even know there were stages to writing? Yeah, same here. That is, until I joined Hope*Writers a couple years ago.


You don’t have to just wonder where you’re at, you can take this 30-second quiz to determine where you’re at in your writing journey. Oh, and I’m a stage 4 writer. Maybe we same, here.

Once you discover your current writer stage, then you can ponder whether you’d like to move on to the next stage and get loads of help and guidance in getting there. Via Hope*Writers, I’m currently learning how to craft a book proposal. Because thanks to them, I learned that sometimes, depending on the genre of the book, you need to write the proposal before you write the book. See? Good, good stuff here, folks.


Let’s say you’re one of the lucky ones and you already know which stage writer you are, but you’ve got some questions and wonder if Hope*Writers will be any good at answering them. Check out these answers to the top 20 questions writers ask for a sample of what you’ll gain from your membership.

Maybe you’ve already written something wonderful and now you need help getting it out to the masses. In that case, take a look at Hope*Writers free Newbies Pocket Rulebook of Book Publishing. It’s great for newbies who feel clueless as it contains all the basic stuff people wonder about in regards to publishing.

What are the benefits of a Hope*Writers membership?

With a monthly membership to Hope*Writers (that you can cancel at anytime), you get anytime access to a free digital library full of helpful resources for every stage writer. You’ll also get weekly training sessions from a never-ending variety of seasoned industry professionals that you can either watch live or after the fact via the resource library. In addition, Hope*Writers will invite you to their private Facebook group where you can network with writers in the same stage as you, or pick the brains of those in stages ahead of you, or turn around and lend a helping hand to the one just starting out behind you. Not to mention the plentiful opportunities for mentorship and/or new friendships. It’s all collaboration and all heart at Hope*Writers.


Take it from me.

I signed up with the intention of just checking it out for a month. I’ve stayed for years and have no plans to leave. There’s just so much knowledge right at my fingertips thanks to Hope*Writers. Knowledge I can digest in my-size portions at a pace that’s just right for me. I love the self-guided, self-paced format Hope*Writers offers and I’m guessing you will, too.

The bottom line is this—if you have any desire to write, just write!

And keep writing. If you follow me then you already know what writing has done for me in my life. It’s done nothing short of save me and show me a way forward. If you want the same for your life, then just start. You don’t need to know all of the how at the onset, it will come, I promise. You just need to begin.

If you want help, expert advice, answers to your questions, and a built-in community of like-minded souls, then take a look at joining Hope*Writers. Interested in checking them out at no cost and no commitment? Here’s the link to a free masterclass on: “How to be a Working Writer Without Losing Your Mind.

I do hope to see you one day at Hope*Writers, and if I do, I’ll happily welcome you aboard and introduce you around.
