About Event

Write On Track is an 8-week writing group (15 July — 6 September 2024), centred around building a sustainable writing practice, balancing writing and life, and getting to that finish-line in one piece.

It's run by Kelly Norwood-Young, an ex-Penguin Random House developmental story editor and Martha Beck-trained professional coach.

Joining the 8-week writing group means you get

  • 1.5-hour weekly group writing sessions facilitated by Kelly, where we’ll use writing exercises paired with group discussion to cultivate consistent writing habits, overcome creative blocks, and nurture your creative process.

  • A 1-on-1 coaching session worth $80 with Kelly where you can dig into writing/life balance, goal setting as a writer, or any other topics you want to work through with a professional coach.

  • An annual FDP premium subscription worth $85 (if you already have an annual subscription, this will be added to your account as a credit for when your subscription renews).

  • An FDP overview session (with me!) where we’ll dive into the app's features and how to get the most out of your premium subscription.

The following is the expected schedule:

  • Week 1: Setting Intentions and Goals

  • Week 2: Building a Writing Routine

  • Week 3: Setting Writer Boundaries

  • Week 4: Playing with Perspective

  • Week 5: Balancing Perfectionism and Progress

  • Week 6: Writing Drunk, Editing Sober (a Metaphor)

  • Week 7: Cultivating Creativity

  • Week 8: Sustaining Consistency

You'll receive an orientation email on the 1st of July with links to all the sessions and additional information about what to expect and prepare.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Kelly via this page 😊
