At the heart of every story lies the gold of discoverya nugget of truth, beauty and transformation that can change both writer and reader forever. What's not always clear is how to translate our lived wisdom to the page.

Award-winning author, ghostwriter and book coach Kristin Kaye created Literary Alchemy to support writers of all levels of ability and commitment: Literary Alchemy: A 6-Month Book Writing Course is crafted for writers compelled to pen book-length work. Alchemy Elements supports writers interested in developing their craft and investigating essential aspects of narrative and the writing process. Full course details below.

We are living in a time of unprecedented change when the stories we have assumed to be true about identity, what has value and whose story matters are undergoing radical revision. Our words matter. The stories we tell ourselves and each other matter. And each of us has a role to play in shaping the evolving narrative of our times.

Join Kristin Kaye and the powerful community of writers and everyday Alchemists forging their essential story, their book and their lives.
