DIY MFA Member’s HUB is currently closed.

Sign up here to reserve your invite next time it opens!

We’re super excited you’re checking it out,
because if you’re reading this page, it means you’re awesome!

You are an intrepid, super-motivated word nerd and you’re committed to reaching your creative goals, like:

  • Getting started on a life-long dream of writing
  • Exploring new genres and writing styles
  • Finally typing those magic words “The End”
  • Connecting with a community of like-minded writers
  • Revising your book and getting it ready for submission
  • Seeing your book through to publication

You also know that to get these results, you can’t go it alone. This is why my team and I have created the DIY MFA Members HUB.

This online community will give you the resources you need so you can improve your skills, polish your manuscript, and build your author platform so you can finally get published.

Whether you’ve taken every DIY MFA program we’ve ever created, or you’ve just started dipping your toe in the community, you’ve shown that you’re committed to your writing education.

Over the years of running our courses, students have told me that they missed DIY MFA when we were between sessions. They wanted a way to stay connected with each other, even when class wasn’t in session.

Why the HUB?

You already know me as the instigator of DIY MFA and word nerd in chief. Now let me give you a behind-the-scenes look at the HUB and why my team and I created this community.

A Place to Hang Out

The biggest consideration for creating the HUB is that when courses aren’t in session students miss having a community. The HUB provides that for you with two calls each month so you can connect with like minded writers and build your community.

An Archive of Our Juiciest Materials

The other big reason for starting the HUB is that the DIY MFA website has gotten HUGE! We have so many articles and podcasts over there that it can feel overwhelming. We need a space to house our juiciest resources—like webinars or the Writer Igniter Summit recordings—where these materials won’t get lost amid all the things happening on the main site.

Keep the Momentum Going!

The HUB combines all of the above. It also includes access to a private Facebook group where we can continue conversations beyond our discussion calls. Plus, I’ll also share exclusive resources in the HUB that don’t appear on the main site!

If you’ve taken one of our signature programs like 101 or P2P, or FLOW, the HUB will help you keep the momentum going. And if you haven’t taken a class, the HUB will let you whet your appetite. Plus, it’s also a great way to ramp up your writing without the big commitment of a full course.

What’s Included in the HUB:

As a member, you’ll get a login to the HUB website so you can access all the materials anytime, anywhere. HUB resources include webinars, audio interviews, craft and discussion calls, and more! Read on to learn about all the features.


You’ll have access to the DIY MFA webinar library, which features over 35 hours of pre-recorded webinars and mini-courses, including the Weekend Writing Sprint, Writer Igniter Con, and more. These webinars are designed to teach you about various aspects of writing and marketing your work. 


“Read with purpose” is perhaps the most overlooked—and also most rewarding—facet of DIY MFA. This is why my team and I have created the recommended reading library. We’ve selected various short stories, essays, and poems that showcase different DIY MFA techniques, so you can put those concepts into action.

Monthly Live Calls

If you’re anything like me, you find face-to-face connections are so much more meaningful than online chats. Don’t get me wrong, online is great, but there’s something about making eye contact (even if it’s only via video chat) that makes the connection feel that much more personal. This is why the live calls are among the most important features of the HUB.

Each month, we have two calls—one focused on craft and one on discussion. These calls are a safe space where you can ask a member of the DIY MFA team your questions about writing and publishing and connect with fellow HUB members. Calls are recorded so if you cannot make it live you will be able to watch the replay.


The HUB also features an archive of our Writer Igniter Summits. We currently have over eighty interviews from authors and experts from a variety of genres, including Romance, Memoir, Sci-fi/Fantasy, Poetry, and more. These summit interviews are a great way to learn from the best in the business.

Private Facebook Group

This Facebook group allows for asynchronous community building and interaction. It gives us the opportunity to connect with fellow HUB members and continue the discussions beyond the live calls.

Writing can be a solitary exercise, but you don’t have to go it alone.
