Monthly Writing Boot Camp
Attention Dear Community!
Due to the exciting activities around the filming of Kristine's Lifetime Television movie, titled "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson" story, there won't be a global writing boot camp this month of August. It's the only month this year where this will be the case, and we'll miss you all this month.
We look forward to seeing you in September.
On the second Saturday of each month (starting December 12th), we invite you to join us for our global online writing boot camp.
This fast-growing community includes other writers like you - coaches, consultants, workshop leaders, teachers, healing practitioners, and others who are passionate about bringing their experience, expertise, and wisdom to the page.
It's a high-impact way to minimize outer distractions and make real progress on your current writing projects.
It's also incredibly fun and inspiring to connect with the extraordinary individuals who participate in the boot camps on a regular basis. We all look forward to meeting you!
What our global writing community can offer you:
Come work on your book, content for your website, content for a course or program you're developing, your blog, your journal writing, or writing for any purpose that's meaningful to you.
Get ultra-focused. Set clear intentions and make your own tailor-made writing schedule for the day.
Be seen and heard. Read your work out loud, if you wish.
Receive laser coaching from us (Kristine and Debra) and feedback from the group, at your request only.
Use the day to move your writing project forward and make tangible progress toward your goals.
Join us for one or both group sessions via Zoom on boot camp days. See the complete schedule below.
Enjoy the dynamic group energy, and find out what new things await you - new perspectives, new ideas for your project, new facets of yourself as a writer, and other aha moments.
A message from Kristine and Debra
Our monthly writing boot camps are an outgrowth of our signature Book Doulas' Incubator Program. Since its inception in 2019, each incubator has included several of these focused workdays, and they've proven to be so effective and creatively inspiring for our participants that we decided to offer a regular, monthly boot camp for writers everywhere to join us, dropping in as your schedule allows, much like a drop-in yoga class.
Not only do the boot camps meet certain needs - such as making time for writing, having just enough structure to help you get traction with your writing, and having contact with others who are committed to getting their books and other content out into the world - but they're also a lot of fun. Laughter and good vibes are always plentiful!
So come write with us.
Your Book Doulas,
Kristine Carlson & Debra Evans

solo work session, read a piece of your writing (if you wish to), and get feedback if desired.
Our August boot camp is cancelled - please see note at top of page
“Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.”
