  • Listen with the ears of a music maker.
  • Give and receive generative feedback that increases results.

Story Craft

Creative storytelling is a sure way to make an impact with your writing. Learn how to:

  • “Act as if you’re already an author” – a technique for triumphing over ‘the imposter syndrome.
  • Apply “breakthrough techniques” to overcome fears behind perfectionism and procrastination.
  • Let go of “Page Fright” and stop worrying about what others think about you or your writing.

I will be forever grateful to Kelly for the classes which made my book possible. She helped me to discover how valuable it can be to wander, to get lost, to take yourself by surprise.

Kelly’s writing workshops are different. They spark a creative mindset and challenge me to learn new storytelling skills. During class time, I create scenes to put into my memoir. We all feel so safe in class and when others are vulnerable and evocative, they inspire me to be real. My writing is more raw and the more honest it becomes, the more it impacts readers and audiences.

Brilliantly perceptive and compassionate, Kelly is helping me turn my experiences while writing the Route 66 books into a memoir. We also shaped them into a speech I gave at the Gene Autry Museum. The talk was a huge success. She turns writing into an adventure.

“O my God, imagine you wake up someday, and you’re 65 or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written, or you didn’t go swimming in those warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.” -Anne Lamott

Write Your Book This Year, Not Next.
