Writers Squad

The accountability and encouragement you need to write.

Join the squad!

Stop dreaming of being a writer and start writing.

Do you have an amazing story idea but just can’t find the time to write it?

Maybe you’ve even written a few chapters of your book, but your self-doubt has kept you from finishing it.

Writing takes patience and practice, but it also takes support.

You don’t have to go at it alone.

I always wanted to write more, but I felt so obligated to be some profound and prolific writer. Frankly, I didn’t know how to motivate myself to do something that felt so daunting. Lauren showed me that you don’t have to write a masterpiece to be a writer, you just have to write.

~ Jenny Kindschy, coaching client and retreat attendee

The Writers Squad will help you:

  • Sift through the cobweb of ideas in your head to find the story you need to tell right now.
  • Declare to the world (a.k.a. our group) what you're going to accomplish each month and get the support you need to DO IT!
  • Finish a complete draft (yes, you can make time in your life to write and we'll all work together to write)
  • Make your writing even better, your story even more impactful with support from your fellow writers.
  • Meet fellow writers and feel less alone in your creative world (writing a book doesn't have to be lonely!).
  • Learn from published authors, literary agents, and publishers in our exclusive interviews.

Concrete Goals

Designed to help you define your writing goals, break them down into smaller actions, and establish an accountability program with concrete deadlines to help you achieve your dreams.

Community of Support

You don’t have to go at it alone. With my group coaching program, you get fellow writers helping support you along your storytelling journey.

Practical Help

Yes, you will get loads of inspiration and motivation, but more importantly you’re going to get solutions for your problems, whether it’s overcoming writer’s block or figuring out what to do with your piece once it’s written.

Lauren is an intuitive, highly specific badass teacher and coach. I write plays, and was jammed up creatively when we met … Lauren respectfully listened to my objections and heard what was underneath. She made concrete suggestions and encouraged me to make my own rules. I have not missed a day of writing since – and eventually I wrote a play that was performed in New York!

Lauren challenged and inspired me to begin journaling every day. This became a sacred daily ritual that has guided me through a deeply transformative year. I would not be who I am today without this potent practice and the depth of learning it brings. Thanks, Lauren!
