Hey, you guys! In February we hosted an event called “Lit” for women in their 20s and 30s who sense a call from God to write, teach or speak. About a week beforehand, I DM’d my friend, Jonathan Merritt, and asked him if he had a piece of advice he’d have me pass on to women who hoped to write. What I received in return was like asking for a stone and getting a fresh loaf of yeast bread hot out of the oven with a whole side of salted butter. He and his fellow writing coach, Margaret Feinberg, who I admire and greatly respect, did a 12 minute video just for that event. I loved it and couldn’t help but wonder how many others could use what they had to say. I asked them if I could share it here, and they were gracious enough to give me permission.
So you can trust they have the writing cred to coach, Jonathan is a contributor to The Atlantic and writes for everyone from USA Today to the Washington Post. He’s a premier religion writer and knows how to reach a mainstream audience like few others on the planet. We need the message of Jesus spread everywhere. Many of you have a message that needs to reach people who don’t know Jesus yet. That’s Jonathan’s forte.
Margaret Feinberg is the author of dozens of books like Fight Back with Joy and Wonder Struck and numerous Lifeway Bible studies. She’s crazy about Jesus and her writing is deep and rich and beautifully crafted. She lives a life of pouring out in a world obsessed with pouring in.
Jonathan and Margaret are not just gifted writers. They’re gifted writing coaches. They’re about to open enrollment for a new online 16-week coaching program as part of the Write Brilliant Academy where they can help you make that dream of writing a book or Bible study become a reality. This is not a pitch from them. I asked them to allow me to share the information because I’m so often asked, “How does a person even begin to write a book???” I don’t have the expertise to explain that process comprehensively but these two do.
The best part: they are giving away a FREE 3-part mini-course to help you start writing, share your writing, and sustain your writing. You’re gonna love it but you better hop to it! It’s only available for a short time. Sign up at jumpstartmywriting.com today. Their coaching program may be exactly what you need to share the message rattling in your bones. OK, I’ll get out of the way and let you connect with these two. We’re so happy to set you up with them.
Thank you a million times over, Jonathan and Margaret!
