Calling MOST Writers

Join us for membership
Heal + Create Writer’s Group
Are you called to write but …
Have an inner calling to write but often find yourself stuck, ashamed of your lack of progress – and confused by why all of those other people seem to write and share themselves with the world – but it remains so difficult for you?
You’re not alone!
The leaders of this community, Jacob Nordby and Lauren Sapala have worked with thousands of writers. They have discovered the most common reasons that writers stay hidden, stymied, and embarrassed that they can’t seem to create all of the wise, beautiful things that exist in them.
If you procrastinate or find yourself with chronic writer’s block … there’s nothing wrong with you!
Have you ever wished …
that you could find a guided writing community to support your growth, healing, and creative development?
You just did!
Watch this video in which Jacob Nordby & Lauren Sapala describe the community – and invite you to join us.

What does my Writer's Community membership provide?
Your registration includes full access to the Heal + Create membership community. Within this community platform you will have access to the monthly workshops, replays, any of your courses, and the private writers’ group. Your membership includes full access to the general Heal + Create community and monthly content, which will come online soon.
What happens after I enroll in the program?
You’ll immediately receive a payment confirmation and an email to the Heal + Create Writers’ Community program. You’ll be emailed instructions with Zoom links for the Kickoff Retreat and more info for using your membership.
What kind of writer do I need to be to join this program?
Any kind! Writers of all stripes and all skill levels (even total beginners) are welcome. If you feel that you would be helped with consistent support, learning opportunities, a loving community, and experiential programs, this is a good home for you.
I’m introverted and anxious in groups but this sounds like a good fit for me. What are the participation requirements?
You can participate as much, or as little, as feels comfortable to you. Writers are welcome to leave their cameras off during workshops and silent writing sessions, and everyone will be on mute during silent writing sessions except for Jacob and Lauren. So, you can remain relatively anonymous and still join in from the comfort of your own home.
I live in a weird time zone for US-based programs, will I still get benefit and how can I participate from where I am?
The Writers’ Community platform and private group make it easy to stay connected from wherever you are and when you can participate!
Each live session will be recorded and all active members get access to the full video replays. The exception is the Silent Writing groups, which are regular meetings are not recorded.
We welcome our friends from all time zones and regions of the world and will seek to offer ways for you to connect as often as possible!
What computer requirements do I need to participate?
Almost any smartphone, PC, or tablet will work. The membership workshops and online sessions are delivered via Zoom. Video replays will be provided via our membership portal and can be viewed on any computer or mobile device.
What if I can’t make it to a live workshop session?
All workshops will be recorded and made available for streaming within 48 hours. You will have access to the recordings as long as you maintain your membership.
What if I can’t make it to a live Silent Writing session?
Silent writing sessions will not be recorded, but they will happen regularly – and you don’t need to pre-register – so you can easily catch the next one on the schedule.
Can I cancel my membership at any time?
We seek to create a cohesive community with sharing, connection, and support. This means that we ask you to join with the intention of being a regular part of our group. However, you can cancel your membership at any time.
- See the FAQ regarding refunds
What about refunds?
We understand that, in some rare cases, program participants may have been confused about the details or terms of the program, or subsequently realize that they won’t be able to commit to participating in the program based on conflicts with scheduling, or other sudden unexpected life events. In these rare cases, we are able to issue a prorated, or partial refund, based on the length of time the participant has been a member of the Heal + Create Writer’s Community.
However, we also have the experience of many years of teaching various types of students and we know that it is quite common to enter into deeply transformative work, and then want to quit when the work begins to actually start changing your life. This is so common because most people tend to go into resistance when faced with letting go of their old fear patterns and moving into something new.
The more people we have who are 100% committed to being present in the Heal + Create Writer’s Community, and to showing up and doing the work, the better the community will be for everyone involved. We believe that each person’s investment in the program reflects their level of commitment. For that reason, we ask that program participants only request refunds if the request is made from a place of true necessity or emergency.
