You want your writing to help people and give hope, and we want to help YOU and give YOU hope! Maybe you’re a beginner stumped with questions about your next steps. Or you’ve been writing for a while but feel you need some clarity in why you write. Maybe you want help to live the life you’re encouraging others to live, without feeling like a phony. Or maybe you’re an author who’s been doing this for years but you long to see how other writers balance the business side of the writing life. Well, we fill every episode with encouragement, inspiration, and practical advice about the writing craft, business, and calling. Emily and Myquillyn have been writing online for nearly ten years. The four of us have published a total of seven books, several of them best sellers. We know what it’s like to feel stuck, aimless, and uninspired in our writing.

You’re going to see your writing dreams more clearly than ever. You’re going to gain hope. And you’re going to have fun.

Customer Reviews

Inspiring conversations and practical help for my writing and live.

I've listened to the hope*writers podcast since its earliest days, and it consistently remains a favorite. Gary, Myquillyn, Emily and Brian never fail to offer real, practical help for my writing as well as inspire me to live out my calling as a writer. Without a doubt, this is the podcast I wish I had years ago when I began taking writing more seriously, but it’s the podcast I’m thrilled to have today as a more experienced one. It's a favorite resource for newbie and experienced writers alike.

My Go-To Podcast

As an author, the hope*writer podcast is my go-to place for encouragement, inspiration and practical application. No matter how many books I've written or how well they sell, there is still always so much more to learn and new ways to grow. I love the creativity, smarts and insights of the hope*writers team. In a noisy world where it's hard to know who to listen to, hope*writers makes that choice easy for me. It will for you too!

Removing Barriers

I always feel empowered to just write after I listen. It doesn't seem so scary anymore. In fact, it feels scarier not to! Thank you!
