About Writing Classes at The Write Practice

In our monthly classes, you'll transform from aspiring writer to published author.

Transforming from an aspiring writer to a published author takes practice. 

Specifically, it takes deliberate practice.

At The Write Practice, we believe that everyone can become a published author and share their writing with the world through deliberate practice. But what is deliberate practice though? 

Deliberate practice has five components:

  1. Theory & Craft
  2. Practice (you must put the theory to practice)
  3. A coach
  4. Feedback
  5. A team

If you focus on each of those five things, you'll become a better writer, finish your book, and accomplish your writing goals.

Joe Bunting

Through our Writing Classes, we want to help you learn the craft.

At The Write Practice, our mission is to create experiences that help you transform from aspiring writer to published author. 

That's why we're so excited about offering these monthly classes to help you do just that. When combined with our coaching programs like 100 Day Book and 1 Year to Publish, we know that they will help you accomplish your writing goals.
