Thanks to those of you who helped me celebrate one year of this newsletter by entering the Book Giveaway. We have a winner: Congratulations to Mynah Marie, one of our Because You Write family!


Last week, I was very honored to be interviewed by Itxy Lopez from “The Educated Woman” about my writing career and creative nonfiction. You can read it here:

How to Write Creative Nonfiction, with Writer Kelly Eden

A month of leveling up your writing

If one of your goals for 2021 is pushing your writing to the next level, you might want to invest in yourself for a month of the Creative Nonfiction Academy.

We are just finishing up a month on Lyric essays and are about to launch into a series of lessons examining the basics of great writing.

It’s $20 for one month and in that time you can access any of the twenty-three archived lessons plus the new weekly ones over the month.

You also get:

  • Writing prompts to unstick your creativity.

  • Curated high-quality readings each week to inspire you. Reading quality helps us produce quality writing!

  • Feedback and encouragement on 250 words of your work. One-on-one feedback is the best way to move forward. It gets you excited about your writing.

We always make excuses with our goals—Do any of these sound like you?

“There’s no time to write.”

“I’m not making any money from my writing.”

“My writing isn’t that good.”

“It seems too hard to get started.”

Your dreams are worth investing in! How much money and time do you waste on other things? Watching T.V? Buying coffee?

If you don’t make time for your writing now, when will you? Check it out.
