alumni mentorship program

It's hard to believe that the Alumni Mentorship Program has ended! The Story Intensive in Highlands, NC, was an incredible experience, packed with critique circles, author & industry chats as well as writer-to-writer support. We can't thank our mentors & mentees enough for their commitment to the process.

finished drafts 
These WWTS Alumni have all completed the monumental task of finishing a draft! Of all the huge milestones in the storyteller's journey, this is by far the greatest. Be sure to celebrate with them on IG & follow along for what's next for these lovely writers!

preorder party
Quite a few workshop alumni have gone on to sell or self-publish their novels, which is just incredible. But launching a book is hard & scary. We'll be sharing them along the way so that you can support with a preorder if you'd like. Click the book covers below to fill up your bookshelves with these beauties!
