Calling All Writers

Unlike some writers' groups, the Storytellers Network doesn't make products, deliverables, and short-term publication goals the sole focus of your development. Instead, we foster connections to the rhythms, tools, and skills you need to thrive in the craft long-term.

Projects and publications will come and go, but your investment in yourself and your connections in the writing community will follow you through your entire creative life. 

We are all better when we work together.

Stay connected to other faith-based writers who share a vision, passion, and love for the craft.

I had Ruth speak to my podcasting class at my university, and she was able to explain storytelling and character development in a way that literally electrified the entire room.

 From start to finish, it is evident that Ruth is for you, the writer, and will do all she can to see you succeed.

Chris Lassiter

Author of You're Grounded

I've used almost every service Ruth offers in some capacity. She's helped me become a much better writer as a writing coach. She's professionally edited work I needed to turn into publishers, and she's helped me plug into a community of storytellers. She also has a great joy about the way she goes about life. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to be a better writer or storyteller.
