  • You can’t go wrong with a Serious Writer Tour Stop! They pack more training and encouragement into one day than you’d expect from such a low ticket price. We’ve already had writers contact us to find out when they’ll be back. Serious Writer’s instructors are knowledgeable, practical, and fun. After just one day, I saw an immediate difference in my writing. I can’t wait for the next one.
    Jean Wilund, president of the Lexington Word Weavers Writers Group
  • Serious Writer One Day events are packed full of information and value. The low cost of attendance even makes it a greater deal for the attention of professionals in a small group. And while they are successful professionals, they also become quick friends and a great encouragement!

  • I have taken a couple Serious Writer classes and attended a boot camp! It was fantastic! I learned so much and am planning on taking more classes online this year. ? It’s so easy to learn your craft through Serious Writer Academy. I highly recommend it!

  • The Serious Writer Tour fills a much needed gap in the Writer Conferences space. Most writers don’t have the time or finances to attend a full fledged 4-Day Conference. However, many writers are encouraged to meet agents to pitch their book idea. Enter: Serious Writer Tour. A 1 day intensive where you not only learn industry trends, get writing and proposal tips, but you pitch your book idea to a highly successful agent and industry experts. All this for an affordable cost. What’s not to love. I’ve attended two. Serious Writer Tours and I learned something new each time. I would highly recommend this mini 1 day conference to new and experienced writers. 
    Evelyn Mann, Author of Miracle In My Living Room: The Story of a Little Mann
  • I loved the encouragement, support and I felt like a part of a family that sincerely cares about the growth of each writer, meeting every writer where they are in their journey.
