Wouldn't it be fantastic if, when setting out on your book pregnancy, you had someone telling you what to do—and when? And someone helping you discern and hold the vision of what's developing through you?


Step into the 1st Trimester of your book pregnancy with assurance, guidance, safety, and support.


Throughout this 3-month course, we'll take everything you learned in the 4-week book pregnancy planning course and apply it specifically to your book.

This course is a highly curated experience, allowing you to work closely with your creative midwife and a trusted group of writerly peers in a small cohort setting as you start growing your book, your voice, and your audience in concrete ways.
