digital storytellers masterclass

Creating a platform for the stories you want to tell is an art.   It requires creative courage and a willingness to grow and evolve in front of an audience.  You learn to weather the uncertainty and ride the learning curves of this journey through consistent practice, resourcefulness and determination.  

As Maya Angelou said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”  

That truth is what drives us and it’s why we’re passionate about providing resources and inspiration for writers who want to inspire and share their craft online.  

We believe your voice is needed.

We also believe that blogging is a viable way to build a unique writing career and attract diverse opportunities.  We believe in writers who go beyond the representative characters that many play online and reveal more truth and honest dialogue, thus creating authentic personal brands, deep connections with readers and a ripple effect in the world.

Ashley Thomas of WriteLaughDream and I have partnered to create the Digital Storytellers Masterclass, a three hour online workshop for writers who want to develop their craft, engage their ideal audience and affect the world with their words.
