This is a unique year-long mentoring and instructional group designed to assist writers of all levels (and genres) in setting and accomplishing their professional goals for 2018. Students will learn to set S.M.A.R.T. goals and be taught the necessary skills for reaching them, and then guided into putting them into practice.
This is an ongoing, active workshop where students are offered my continuous support, feedback, and instruction through monthly live chats, weekly motivational lessons, and weekly check-ins for short-term and long-term writing goals. This is not a traditional workshop where a student just downloads lessons and works alone; I have created a private, very supportive online writing community with brainstorming forums, watercoolers, daily sprints, accountability threads, offers for free e-books, monthly one-on-one coaching sessions, Healthy Writers forums, critique groups, and much more.
I run monthly challenges with timelines that encourage writers to stretch outside of their comfort zones, achieve individual goals, or practice new skills. I also offer monthly workshops in the group to develop your skills in different areas of writing. Everything I offer is designed to take your writing (and productivity) to the next level! As a multi-published author in nonfiction and fiction, I write along with everyone. My goal is to spur the group along to get the most writing done and to reach—or surpass—everyone’s professional goals.
More specifically, I offer students in the group an opportunity to write e-books so that they can have a passive income as writers.
In addition, I will show students how to self-publish those e-books as a way to create passive streams of income. Then, they can take their time to write their stories not worrying about the financial pressures of writing for publication.
Our forum is an excellent place for writers to find support for their efforts, to share struggles and accomplishment and friendship, to feel inspired and motivated, and to enjoy each other’s company. So, if you want 2018 to be your best writing year yet, register now—our next session starts on February 1, 2018!
Here is what members in my 2016/2017 group are saying about the mentoring group:
“I’ve taken many skill-building workshops that taught me how to write, but Irene’s mentoring workshop is the only class that taught me how to smartly establish and reach my writing goals. Additional side benefits: her focus on being a healthy writer greatly improved my diet & exercise routine…while I tripled my daily word count!” ~ KMM
“Irene’s brilliant and ‘doable’ guidance combined with irrepressible enthusiasm and unfailing energy (especially in the face of physical injury/illnesses of self and family) cannot fail to inspire and spur a student to reach deeper within in order to successfully achieve higher goals. Her empowering leadership that entrusts a student with presenting a chat spurred me to expand my belief in my own abilities.” ~ LD
“Irene teaches you to set goals, work on your goals, meet your goals, not just for a day or a week, but week after week, month after month, until you are a goal-setting machine.” ~ SP
“There are so many wonderful things to say about Irene Roth’s Mentoring program, but one key aspect of it stands out the most for me, and no doubt for others. Irene takes mentoring to a whole new level. She has a unique compassion for writers and their solitary journey that is often plagued with conflict, crises, and setbacks. Irene doesn’t just sympathize, she offers the writer a plan to get the writer through the crises, step by step. Sometimes with personal examples. This is a mentoring program that doesn’t let you fail. You can dream again.” ~ CG
