Procrastination, disorganization, lack of knowledge, and overwhelm. These are the top reasons people don't get their writing done, submitted, or published.

You've come to the right place if:

  • you want to learn the how-tos of writing
  • you want to hear interviews with experts
  • you want a chance to get your manuscripts workshopped
  • you want to be supported and guided through a community of like-minded writers
  • you would benefit from the advice from someone who's been both traditionally published (with Harcourt, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, and more) as well as independently. 

See a replay of a Block Party, aka critique workshop, below.

Get Actionable Support

When I started The Writers' Block in 2016, my goal was to create a welcoming, warm, supportive group where writers could get personal and actionable help. I wanted to offer solid guidance on the problems in a manuscript, and with all those other crummy obstacles you hit when you're a writer. It has become a custom-tailored, inspirational community for writers. And I wanted to offer it at a do-able cost.

So, what exactly is The Writers' Block?

It's a virtual community—a private clubhouse—offering you writing inspiration and support, publishing instruction,  experts' knowledge, marketing skills, and more. It's a place to get encouragement to keep you going when the going hits a dead stop; it's a welcoming front porch when you just can't seem to continue or even get yourself started.

As a member of the Writers' Block, you're our "Neighbor."

Here is what you get:

  • Opportunities to enter the TWICE monthly drawing to have your work critiqued live in our "Block Parties" ($600 value)
  • Exclusive Industry Guest Expert Interviews and access to the replays ($100 value)
  • PLUS a written Guest Expert Q&A with even more in-depth expert content
  • Private Facebook group to connect with writers
  • Monthly live community session called "Writers Playground" where the Writers' Block Neighbors get a voice in what'll happen that week. We've covered topics such as how to get your BIC (butt in chair!), Q&As, live writing sprints, bonus critique workshops and more. (Value: $300)
  • And of course, access to the replays.

If you are at all interested in furthering your writing then do something to help yourself. The support, the critiques, the forthright and honest feedback [in the Writers’ Block] is all part of what you get. The community and “neighbors” are the perks.

Katie Davis provides consistent 
and great content each month. What I enjoy the most about her block
parties is that she is vulnerable and real. You can expect the same out
of her critiques. She will give you encouragement but is not afraid 
to give it to you straight if something isn't working. She genuinely
cares and wants to help others. This became the most evident when
 she was the guest expert with a Live Question and Answer. (Hint: I hope the Live Q&A continues.)

As a newly published author of The Museum… I reached out to Katie for consultation and guidance… Katie's wealth of knowledge and technological skill have been instrumental in putting me on the right path.  She is efficient, knowledgeable, highly skilled, and extremely generous. I'm continuing my work with Katie as I go on this journey!

I'm thankful for all of the revisions I've been able to get done. I feel like a new, enthused me. I'm also very thankful for … Writers’ Block.

Encouragement through the week! Support. It has led me to finally getting it together and managing to ship a story off to Cricket.  Maybe I'll send another tomorrow! Keep the ball rolling. That story has sat for a year+.  I know it sounds silly, but it is a major achievement for me.  I literally felt quite ill hitting the submit button, as for various reasons it is the first time I have sent out a manuscript in several years. Thank you for your encouragement, Katie and others.

I love the tidbits of info we get from the critiques and the guest expert
interviews. I follow several writers groups, podcasts and on email lists.
I get something from everyone but I feel like you are the only one that
dives into the proper layouts, secrets to remembering proper
grammar, give us ideas on how to go different directions, and gets
excited with us. I like the feel of the one on one mentoring.

The Writers’ Block is an ongoing opportunity to learn from and connect with other writers. The monthly Block Party critiques with Katie are Golden!

Thank you Katie. The critique I received from the writers block was very helpful the reminder to look carefully for slips from the tents I’m using, and all the other corrections and suggestions, applied to the continue review of my current manuscript has made a noticeable improvement in the creation of my story. Thank you again.

I frequently find that the critiques have me looking at my work from a different angle. Even while listening to someone else’s work being read and examined, I hear things that make me aware of some of my own bad habits. It’s not always comfortable to hear criticism but I think true learning needs to shake us up a bit. I look forward to the online critique workshops every month.

I look forward to the monthly online critique workshops, aka “Block Parties.” The critiques are extremely helpful. The Writers’ Block provides me with lots of great tips and inspiration and I enjoy the interviews and contest. I find myself referring The Writers’ Block to writers I meet. Katie is amazing; she goes the extra mile for us and her professionalism is outstanding. I feel like I have a family within this group – an important extra bonus to all the learning to hone my writing skills!

Putting yourself out there for a critique is not easy…The best thing about Katie's comments is that
while she is straight out honest and exacting, she also never misses a
chance to praise the good stuff. She may be your toughest critic, but
she is also your biggest fan. Priceless!

I have felt very honored to be a part of your Writers' Block. Katie Davis did 2 of my critiques. I didn't know how to format 
a manuscript. I didn't know how to write in present or past
 consistently, keep the same verb tense throughout the story. I learned so much and
 now I am sending them out to agents. Thanks, Katie.
