January 1-July 1, 2019 (6 months)
Applications open now until December 10, 2018
What is the Writing in the Glory Catalyst School?
It is a 6 month group coaching program to help get your book from start to finish and to prepare you to steward the movement that comes after this birth. We will walk you through all of the necessary steps week by week and help midwife the birth of your dream come true.
Who is it for?
This is for those who are serious about seeing their dream of writing a book fulfilled and can invest the time to dive into their project wholeheartedly during this season. It’s also to help the Writing in the Glory Workshop graduates who may feel stuck and need a little extra support to get their book finished. There are limited spaces and an application process to get in.
What does it include?
Weekly encouragement, support, interaction, and coaching via email, recording, or webinar
1 personal 45 minute coaching session with Jen
1 Webinar a month 60-90 minutes with Jen and/or guest that includes time of Q & A
An intentional and intimate community of likeminded people where we will exchange work, get feedback, and help each other
Facilitated journey from start to finish for those who are ready and willing to put in the necessary work
It will include monthly video group conference sessions with Jen, weekly connection with others in the school, exchanging of others chapters to provide feedback and development, tips, strategies to get your book finished and launched, coaching on the publishing process, how to market your book, and time for question and answer in the group sessions as well as regular encouragement and prayer over you and your project. There will be a facilitator to help keep each you accountable, staying on target, and encouraged.
When is it and what is the flow?
The school will run from January 1 to July 1, 2019. It is wise to plan for a minimum of 1-2 hours a week to be a part of school interactions and then add additional writing time for whatever goals you set for yourself to hit the deadlines. The time commitment will depend on how much time per week you are willing to set aside for your own project. Here is a rough overview of the school.

How much does it cost?
It’s hard to put a price tag on seeing a long time dream fulfilled and stepping into another measure of your destiny. We believe it is a great investment into the purposes of God in each one so we have made it considerably cheaper than personal one-on-one coaching to make it accessible to more people. The Writing in the Glory Catalyst School is $1,000 a month for 6 months (total $6,000) or a one time up front payment of $5,000. This price does not include professional editing, publishing, marketing, graphic design, cover design or costs that may be needed needing if self-publishing. If you really feel you want to join and commit to the process but can’t afford this, we encourage you to ask for a sponsor to invest in you and in your dream or if you’re a missionary or in full-time ministry email us where you are at. Any interested in sponsoring missionaries, please contact us.
Applications are open now until December 10. There is a non-refundable application fee of $75 which includes the Writing in the Glory E-course (or a coupon to give as a gift if you already have it).
