The writing life can be simultaneously energizing and exhausting. As a writer, you’re motivated to serve your readers, lavishing attention and love with your words, but if you don't replenish your source of creativity and joy, your soul becomes parched and you have little left to share.

You don't want to be reduced to a dripping faucet when you have the rushing river of a message that needs to be released! You pour out your life for others, and now let us pour into you.

Refreshment comes first from nourishing your soul and spirit. But you also need a community of passionate people who will support you and spur you on to reach your goals.

You need the right information and encouragement at the right time, nothing more, nothing less. You don't want to be overwhelmed but instead equipped for the next step with reliable mentors in your life who provide practical advice and focus your eyes on the promise of your calling to write.

about us

Especially when they flourish in their writing life. 

WRITERS CHANGE THE WORLD

WRITERS WORKING IN ISOLATION EASILY LOSE THEIR WAY.
IT’S TIME TO BANISH CONFUSION AND OVERWHELM!

It’s not that you don’t know what to do...  

You’ve started writing and set some goals.

You attend workshops and read books.

You’ve been to a conference or two.

You wake up at 5 am or stay up ‘till midnight to write.

But it’s just not coming together.

You gain clarity but then you lose it again.




YOU NEED CLARITY AND GUIDANCE TO THRIVE IN YOUR WRITING LIFE. 

You don’t need more knowledgewell, maybe you need a little more in just the right places—but you primarily need to apply the knowledge you have. 

What should I focus on? What is the right next step?

You’re doing all the things but still feeling stuck. 

You make decisions and focus for a time only to second guess yourself and become sidetracked.
   
You use all your writing time on other tasks and find yourself doubting the value of your message. 

Your passions are vibrant in your head and heart, but when you get them onto paper, they lose their vitality.

You remember the early days when your enthusiasm carried you along on a wave of hope but sending your words out into the vacuum of the internet without so much as a peep from readers has muted your joy.

WHEN YOU FIND IT DIFFICULT TO MAKE FORWARD PROGRESS, BUT YOUR MESSAGE IS BURNING A HOLE IN YOUR HEART, YOU WONDER WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO GET TRACTION IN YOUR WRITING LIFE.

LET’S GET YOU OUT OF THE DOLDRUMS AND ONTO THE PATH TO FLOURISH IN YOUR WRITING

We’re just like many of you.

We’re friends who met years ago at a Bible study.

We’re moms of four boys (Mindy’s cray!) and a sweet girl (Jenny’s joy!).

We’re wives to two wonderful husbands. 

We’re totally human and fail often.

We’re in need of grace daily, and we mean daily.

We’re obsessed with encouraging women, especially those who feel the nudge to write. We’re like writing midwives, birthing your words from your heart onto the page.

We started Flourish with a passion to share our God stories, real-life tales of Jesus’ faithfulness in our every day. As our community grew, people asked, “How do you write like that? I love how you weave God’s Word with your stories to share a message of hope. Can you teach me how?”

Hello there! We’re Mindy and Jenny.

We created FlourishWriters on one simple premise: we would teach what we practice. When we teach from experience, we share actionable content that works. Because it has been tried and tested by yours truly. Score! 

We love coming alongside fellow writers, equipping and guiding them with clarity on the next steps in their writing journey. 



A 12-MONTH WRITER’S INCUBATOR DESIGNED TO PROVIDE CLARITY AND GUIDANCE TO MEET YOUR WRITING GOALS THROUGH COMMUNITY, ACTION, AND ACCOUNTABILITY

We’ve created the path to flourishing in your writing journey.
You’re not alone. There is a path. Let’s show you the way.


Maybe you’re thinking, the FlourishWriters Academy sounds promising, 
but what exactly is it?

The Academy is not a course.

It’s not even a group program.

--- It’s a personalized experience. ---

The Academy provides direct access to Jenny and Mindy and a small community of like-minded writers who are committed to making big strides in their writing journey this year.

And it’s specifically designed to give you the support and accountability you need to achieve your writing goals over the next twelve months.

YOU DESIRE TO SHARE YOUR WRITING.

YOU WANT TO MAKE PROGRESS.

LET FLOURISHWRITERS PROVIDE THE INGREDIENTS FOR SUCCESS.


Introducing

#1: 12-Month Transformation


So many writers languish before they find their beat because they’re expecting instant growth. Slow and steady wins the race. But even slow and steady needs to be headed in the right direction. 

The FlourishWriters Academy is designed as a year-long experience so you have the time to set goals, implement a plan, and make adjustments as your writing journey emerges.  

We’ll help you focus on a 12-month transformation that develops your writing muscles. You need to find what works for your situation and your unique goals, curating the components of a robust writing journey you can sustain over time.

The FlourishWriters Academy
designed with four guiding principles to help you reach your goals

#2: Clear Writing Goals

The writing life comes complete with dreaming and creating. Writers have big ideas, sometimes too many ideas. 

You start off strong and go after your goals with determination. It’s all you think about. You can’t wait to get back to your writing project. But when you begin to lose your way, the focus gets fuzzy, and new ideas start to look so much better than wrestling with the messy manuscript or writing project you’ve got on your hands. 

That’s why all FlourishWriters Academy members set quarterly goals and review them every 90 days with The Writer's Life 90-Day Planner. We provide the system you need to stay on track with your writing goals.

#3: Community Accountability

The writing life naturally has periods of isolation. 

The collaborative part of the writing life must be supported by a community of mentors and colleagues, people who help you develop a plan and stick to it. Without consistent accountability, the solitary writer is susceptible to distraction, overwhelm, and self-doubt.

The FlourishWriters Academy offers several touchpoints each month. We are in the private group every week answering questions and helping out if you’re stuck. 

Additionally, each Academy member is part of a Mastermind group where you spur one another on and monitor progress toward your writing goals.



#4: Taking Action

In the FlourishWriters Academy, we systematically cover the seven phases of writing from idea and planning to organizing, writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. We present information and skills in each of these phases of writing during our Monthly (Doing) Workshops.

Since writers come from every walk of life with a wide variety of skills gathered from a thousand different places over the years, we each naturally have our own set of strengths and weaknesses. The result? We need help to identify the gaps in our knowledge base.

You also receive Implementation Guides for each monthly workshop which summarizes key information and primary takeaways. The Guides lay out action steps for you to master the skills presented. 

 

It takes a village to sustain a writer

We are your village.

"Mindy Kiker and Jenny Kochert with FlourishWriters are gifted
communicators. Their teachings are spot-on and beneficial for writers and speakers of all experience levels. Along with their quality teaching, and perhaps even more important, their desire to serve God and His followers undergirds all they do. In a world inundated with blogs and workshops, I’m careful who I endorse. Without reservation, I recommend FlourishWriters for
help in your ministry journey."

sOME THOUGHTS FROM WRITERS WE'VE WORKED WITH

WITH THE
FLOURISHWRITERS ACADEMY,
YOU’LL MAKE UNPRECEDENTED PROGRESS TOWARD
YOUR WRITING GOALS

It’s more than just another course.

You’ll practice and learn while growing your writing tool kit.

You’ll have community and mentorship to keep you moving forward.

You’ll be surrounded by peers and coaches who are dedicated to your success!

We kick off our year in the Academy with a LIVE planning workshop to clarify your vision and create action steps for the first quarter. We’ll work through the 90-Day Goal Planner to prepare for the first three months. The planner takes into consideration your whole life to help you design a doable plan. You don’t just learn about goal planning—you actually do the work so you’re ready to jump into the next three months.

Academy members who choose the Coaching Experience package will receive these LIVE planning workshops quarterly throughout the year. We facilitate the workshops by demonstrating the planning process in our own lives, including plenty of time for Q&A. We take you behind-the-scenes in our writing and ministry life. Ask us anything!

HERE’S WHAT YOU GET EVERY QUARTER:

THE WRITER'S LIFE 90-DAY GOAL PLANNING WORKSHOP

The self-guided goal planner goes hand-in-hand with the workshop, providing a step-by-step process that helps you build a vision for your year. Part of Academy life is using the planner each quarter to evaluate your current status, determine the next steps, and implement a plan for the next 90 days. Mastermind Groups work through the Goal Planner every quarter. Coaching Experience members use the Goal Planner in the quarterly LIVE Planning Workshops with Jenny and Mindy.

THE WRITER'S LIFE 90-DAY GOAL PLANNER 

ONE-ON-ONE COACHING CALLS

Members who choose the Coaching Experience receive four one-on-one calls with Mindy or Jenny to work through any snags they encounter and clarify the vision for the next 90 days. 

The monthly workshops are focused on implementation. You will learn and practice all aspects of a writer’s skill set to identify and fill any gaps in your knowledge base. We systematically cover the seven phases of writing from idea and planning, to organizing, writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. With focused implementation, working systematically phase by phase through the writing process, you will be established as a lifelong learner with a sustainable journey ahead. 

HERE’S WHAT YOU GET EVERY MONTH:

WRITER’S (DOING) WORKSHOPS

The Monthly (Doing) Workshops come alive with Implementation Guides that present key information and primary take-aways, so you don’t miss a thing! The Guides lay out action steps for you to master the skills presented. We also point you to additional resources from trusted practitioners if you need further research, going deeper into the monthly topics. 

WORKSHOP IMPLEMENTATION GUIDES

MASTERMIND GROUP

If you’ve never experienced the genius of a Mastermind Group, get ready to be amazed. Here you’ll receive and give constructive feedback on your goals each month. With a small group of peers working on similar projects, mastermind groups give you access to the power of community for problem-solving, overcoming barriers, and inspiring action. 

HERE’S WHAT YOU GET EVERY DAY:

We are hands-on in the Academy, answering questions, sharing insights, and pointing to useful resources. Mastermind Mentors share from their areas of expertise and provide up-to-date reports from the front lines of the writing life! You’ll never again be a lonely writer. We are your village.

ACCESS TO THE FLOURISHWRITERS ACADEMY TEAM

PRIVATE FACEBOOK COMMUNITY

Academy members gather in a private Facebook group where the daily magic of community takes shape. Have a question? Want some feedback? Wonder if you’re the only one who has faced x, y, z? The solitary writing life just got a whole lot more connected.

Walker White Dorman

"Praise the Lord for birthing FlourishWriters in two amazing women. What a blessing you both are Mindy and Jenny. I'm grateful for all I've gleaned from Flourish and the opportunity to meet two lovely ladies that honor and serve the Lord well. It's been amazing watching Flourish go from baby steps to where it is today. "

Susan Bricker

"The whole atmosphere of Flourish Writers Community is upbeat, God-honoring, and kind. I am impressed with how members pray for each other. The practical instruction is professional and supportive — a common comment is: “I was so helped by having the mystery of writing being broken down in doable steps.” Plaudits to Mindy and Jennifer and to the Lord Who inspires them."

Raushawna Price

"It. Is. Done. I could not have completed this without the insight, experience and generosity of FlourishWriters. I started almost a year ago with no idea how to publish a book and you all have graciously answered my questions, prayed and cheered me on. More than the product itself, I have learned about the value of community and been amazed at how ready you all are to share your knowledge and help me succeed. Wow! Thank you. Thank you."

Author, Favored Blessed Pierced: A Fresh Look at Mary of Nazareth

Eva Burkholder

"FlourishWriters appeared in my inbox exactly when I needed it. I had parts of my book but had trouble getting to the final product. They showed me how to take those small puzzle pieces I had created, and place them exactly where they needed to go, so I could see the whole picture! They told me WHAT I needed and taught me HOW to use those tools. I am grateful for Flourish Writers!"

sOME THOUGHTS FROM WRITERS WE'VE WORKED WITH

IT’S NOT MORE INFORMATION YOU NEED
BUT THE RIGHT INFORMATION AT THE RIGHT TIME
TO MOVE YOUR WRITING FORWARD

That’s why the Writer’s (Doing) Workshops in the FlourishWriters Academy are focused on implementation. Each workshop is accompanied by an Implementation Guide to help you practice the skills you need to take action to build your writer’s tool kit.

Throughout the year, we cover the seven phases of the writing process from idea and planning to publishing and marketing. Proficiency in all seven areas is essential to your success as a writer.

Once you join the Academy, you get access to a new writer's workshop each month.

We’ll cover topics like . . .

1. Reach Your Reader

Define your message and attract your ideal reader. Who is the person you’re writing for? What are their needs, hopes, and desires? How does your writing touch their life?

2. Plan Your Projects

After you clarify your writing goals, you then structure your writing ideas into doable projects. Define the scope of each project and create a work plan with scheduled times for writing. 

3. Corral the Content

You need a system to help you organize and outline your content within each project. What research needs to be done? Do you want to do interviews? How will you present the information and how will your consumer use it?

4. Identify Your Strengths

We each come to the writing process with a variety of strengths and weaknesses. What are the strongest elements of your writing and where do you need to improve? What skills need to be practiced?

5. Craft Your Message

Depending on the readers you serve and the nature of your message, you will adopt a writing voice and style that supports your purpose. What are the elements that constitute “good writing” specific to your project?

6. Create Your Brand

Your writing becomes part of a larger message or brand that is conveyed not only by your words, but also by colors, images, photos, and design. Learn to coordinate these elements to create a full experience for your readers. 

7. Build Your Tool Kit

Dive into the craft and skill of writing. As writers, we need to be life-long learners who cultivate and grow our writing skills. Build your tool kit this year by learning to use the tools of description and dialogue.

8. Sharpen Your Editing Skills 

Writing and revision are central processes that enable your message to make an impact. The finely tuned skills of self-editing ensure that your words glisten with clarity and accuracy. Did your message come through? 

9. Produce Polished Manuscripts

When you learn to write clear, concise prose and self-edit with care, you can share your writing with confidence. We will work on the four levels of polishing a manuscript to equip you with the critical elements for successful writing. 

10. Choose a Publishing Route 

It’s time to share what you’ve written! What is the best route for you? You will learn the pros and cons of traditional and self-publishing as well as other viable routes for sharing your writing in line with the goals of your project. 

Yes! Sign me up!

Ready to join The FlourishWriters Academy?

Whether you’re just beginning your writing journey, or you’ve walked many miles, retreats with other writers to learn, grow, and refresh are part of the rhythm of the writing year. Taking time away to share ideas and practice new skills provides space for creativity to emerge. But what if you don’t have excess time, money, or the ability to travel? Virtual retreats bring the refreshing right to you. All Academy members receive the wildly popular 2019 How to Write a Book Step-by-Step Writer’s Bundle and the much-anticipated 2020 Storyteller’s Conference Bundle. 

VIRTUAL RETREATS

If you’ve been dreaming of writing a book but need some guidance, or if you’ve started and stalled out in your writing, this retreat bundle is for you. Six writing coaches walk you through the process of writing a book, from idea through to publishing and everything in between. Whether you’re a beginner or a writer looking to improve your skills.

You’ll learn how to:

• Brainstorm Your Book Idea
• Plan the Structure of Your Book
• Organize Your Chapter Content
• Strengthen Your Writing Skills
• Self-Edit Like a Pro
• Choose Your Publishing Direction


HOW TO WRITE A BOOK WRITER’S RETREAT BUNDLE 

THE STORYTELLER’S CONFERENCE BUNDLE

We believe in the power of story as a profound path to connect your message with the heart and mind of your reader. Your story deserves to be told, but stories can be difficult to handle. How much is too much? What works and what doesn’t? That’s why we created The Storyteller’s Conference, a gathering place for writers who want to improve their storytelling skills.

You'll learn how to:

• Unlock the power of story in fiction writing 
• Write different types of memoir
• Share hard stories with truth and grace
• Fictionalize real-life events
• Use stories as compelling illustrations
• Tell Biblical stories creatively

I'm Ready to make serious progress!

We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you have any doubts about the value of the FlourishWriters Academy, if you’re prone to buyer’s remorse, if you purchase the Academy and then a financial crisis throws your budget into a death spiral, you have 14 days after purchase to ask for a refund, and we’ll give your money back without hesitation. We’ll be sad, but we understand. Life happens.

But if you stick around and make FlourishWriters your home, we’ll be here for you, through all that life brings this year. We are a family. We commit to you through the ups and downs of your writing journey. So after the initial 14 days, we will no longer offer a refund. Instead, we’ll get to work making your writing dreams come true.

If you’re ready for a change, we’re ready to come alongside you. The FlourishWriters Academy is like nothing you’ve experienced. We’d love to see you truly flourish.

"The FlourishWriters Community has been such a blessing to me personally. I've learned so much from Mindy and Jenny - not only about the writing life, but also about how to serve others with the gifts we've been given.

Mindy and Jenny are so generous with their knowledge, always willing to share their experience to help others grow as writers and steward their story well.

I've had the privilege of serving the FlourishWriters Community as a speaker at the FlourishWriters Conference in February 2019 as well as the FlourishWriters Write Your Book Virtual Retreat in October 2019. Both experiences were such a joy. The conferences included remarkable content and practical tips to help writers take the next step in their writing journey.

FlourishWriters is a wonderful resource that I've recommended to a number of writing friends. I appreciate the way that Mindy and Jenny understand the challenges that many writers face - practically, emotionally, and spiritually - and the way they are committed to providing resources that will help community members overcome those challenges.

They serve this community well, with grace and joy. Any writer who is looking for a supportive community and guidance in the writing life would find a welcome home at FlourishWriters." 

Kate Motaung

Still not sure? 

We were there too, not so long ago. Just like you, we had a vision, but we weren’t sure how to pursue it. We were confident in the calling, and we knew it would take trust and obedience, but we also had to figure out how to move forward. Goodness, first we had to figure out what questions to ask. We. Knew. Precious. Little. But we knew the One who would guide us.

We also had each other. Companionship gets you through hard times, confusion, self-doubt, and despair. When one of us wanted to give up, the other rushed in with support.

You don’t need to languish alone. Get into community. Find your village, faithful people you can trust, reliable information you can count on.

Think of the power in partnership: Ruth and Naomi, Mary and Joseph, Paul and Timothy . . . Batman & Robin, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Christopher Robin & Pooh.

The FlourishWriters Academy is our gift of friendship to you. We daily encounter writers who are lonely, confused, or despondent. It breaks our hearts because this does not need to be a writer’s story.

We want to share what we have with you. We invite you to join the FlourishWriters family. You belong. You are worthy. Your message matters. Your dreams are valid.


You want to be certain this is the right step for you. It may feel like a big risk. If we could go out for coffee, this is what we’d say. . .

FAQ's

HOW LONG DOES THE FLOURISHWRITERS ACADEMY MEMBERSHIP LAST?
The FlourishWriters Academy is a 12-month experience. Why so long? Real change takes time. When you want to learn a specific skill, a six-week course may work just fine, but we are focused on transformation and long-term change to create a sustainable writing life. That kind of change needs time and space.


WHEN DOES THE FLOURISHWRITERS ACADEMY START?
January 2020


HOW MUCH TIME WILL I NEED TO COMMIT EACH WEEK?
This will be determined by how much time you commit to your writing goals. Engaging with the Academy requires about 1-2 hours each week. Writer’s Workshops and Quarterly Planning Workshops are about 90-minutes each. Mastermind meetings are one hour. Coaching Experience members also have four one-on-one calls with Mindy and Jenny.


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ACADEMY AND THE COACHING EXPERIENCE?
Good question! Both options provide the same access and content with two additional benefits for Coaching Experience members: (1) four one-on-one Coaching Calls with Jenny or Mindy; and (2) three additional Writer's Life 90-Day Goal Planning Workshops LIVE with us.


WHAT IF I CAN’T ATTEND LIVE? WILL I GET A REPLAY?
Yes, you have a learning portal with your personal login. Everything is stored in one place, organized nicely, with easy access from any device. You won’t miss a thing, and you can go back and review the content again and again.


WILL I WORK ONE-ON-ONE WITH MINDY AND JENNY?

Everyone in the Academy has access to LIVE QnA with Jenny and Mindy in the workshops, but the one-on-one coaching is reserved for those who choose The Academy Coaching Experience.


WHAT IF I DON’T USE FACEBOOK?
The Mastermind Groups and the Private Community Group may be hosted on Facebook. The Writer’s (Doing) Workshops and the Writer's Life 90-Day Goal Planning Workshops are on our webinar platform and Zoom. If you are not a Facebook user, you will have a different experience, but it is not a death sentence. Jenny and Mindy provide the coaching call by phone.


HOW LONG ARE THE COACHING CALLS?
The coaching calls are 25-minutes long. Academy members can purchase 60-minute calls if needed.


WHAT KIND OF WRITERS SHOULD JOIN THE ACADEMY?
Our expertise is nonfiction. Much of what we work on in the Academy applies to both fiction and nonfiction; however, our examples are largely nonfiction since that’s what we write. We have experienced community members writing fiction, and we bring on board other fiction writers who weigh in on specific questions that we need answered.


IF I’M A BEGINNER, WILL I FEEL OUT OF PLACE?
The material we present assumes that you’ve accepted the call to write and you want to grow in your writing skills. If you’re still not sure, you can join the Academy to find out, or you can continue to enjoy our free resources as you decide if writing will feature prominently in your life.

IF I'M MORE EXPERIENCED, WILL I FEEL OUT OF PLACE?
Since writers come from every walk of life with a wide variety of skills gathered from a thousand different places over the years, we each naturally have our own set of strengths and weaknesses. The result? Sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know—we need help to identify the gaps in our knowledge base. We teach the information we’ve tested with a focus on practical, doable, step-by-step processes. We serve a wide scope of skill-level with high-value offerings and an engaged, enthusiastic community ready to help out wherever you have need.


WILL YOU OFFER THE ACADEMY AGAIN IN 2021?
We hope so, but we don't promise it will work exactly the same or be the same price. We always test, innovate, and improve our offerings, so we'll probably offer something similar if it is a raging success. We have every reason to believe it will be.


IS THIS LIKE AN ALL-ACCESS PASS GIVING ME ACCESS TO ALL YOUR PRODUCTS?
No, The FlourishWriters Academy and the Coaching Experience give you access to the items listed. If you want any of the other products we offer throughout the year, you can purchase those resources a-la-carte. And of course, we'll offer plenty of free content too.


IF I DON'T JOIN THE ACADEMY, WILL I LOSE OUT ON ALL THE COMMUNITY AND FREE CONTENT I'VE ENJOYED AT FLOURISHWRITERS TO DATE?
No, you're welcome to hang out with us. We'll still be here supporting writers with our signature let's-make-it-easy-step-by-step approach, but we will invest most intentionally with those in the Academy. When a writer chooses to invest in themselves and commit to us, we reciprocate with our lavish attention.


IS THERE A PAYMENT PLAN?
We can split the payment into two, half now and the second half in one month. During November, it’s our pleasure to offer a special of three payments, making it even easier to get started!


WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND?
We commit to you for all 12 months. When you sign up, we expect you are committing to us for all 12 months as well. We’re in this together! We do not offer refunds after 14 days from the date of purchase.


IS FLOURISHWRITERS FAITH-BASED?
Yes, we are a Christian ministry, but you do not need to be working on spiritual writing to feel right at home in the Academy. We support writers in many different genres.


IS FLOURISHWRITERS FOR WOMEN ONLY?
We focus primarily on women, but we have some men who join us for the excellent resources and awesome value. All are welcome.


I HAVE ONE MORE QUESTION.
