Mixology of The Writing Bar

A year-long workshop subscription for anyone who wants to write and needs time, space, writing tips, confidence boosters, accountability, and connection. Gather with others who also need to get their butt in the chair and put pen to paper. 

We meet twice a month for an hour at a time to get you working on that project you’ve been thinking of. 

Oh, and we’re tossing in an expert bartender to… The Lady Boss at TWPRT, professional writer and author will be serving you. 

Whether you’re ready to brave the path to the page and finally write the story whispering your name, or you’ve got something else you’re working on – like your next blog post, new website copy for your business, or your free ebook – The Writing Bar provides the time, coaching, expertise, and accountability for you to make progress on your project.

The Writing Bar is a writing workshop, creative writing class, and confidence boost, all in one place.

Pay as you go each month or just one time in full to have access to all of the workshops for the next year (that’s 12 calendar months from when you sign up). You can join anytime! The door is always open.

Find the writing time, guidance, and support that you’ve been looking for to finally get that thing – whatever it is – written. It’ll be me, you and your words mixin’ it up just like a cocktail.  

The Writing Bar: where your one hour is a happy hour.

What People Are Saying About The Writing Bar

“I love having a scheduled time to write and partners to hold me accountable. Without this, I struggle to find time to write. This is a great community filled with supportive people at all levels of writing abilities and writing styles.” — Kathy Goughenour, Business Coach and Trainer of Virtual Expert Training

“I have joined ‘The Writing Bar’ to be part of a collaborative and supportive cohort of writers who are willing to share their ideas and their ideals. As a facilitator, Ally has provided us with the encouragement needed to believe in the dreams which exist within us all.” — Jim

“The Writing Bar provides a time and place to work on writing instead of just thinking about writing, in a completely positive and supportive space. There is a bit of guidance, tips and tricks included and plenty of available 1:1 help if needed. Ally makes it fun and interesting and is very encouraging!” — Patty, Retired Person Seeking Her Artist Selves

“I love The Writing Bar. Each session feels like I’m meeting with my personal writing coach, and because of this, I’ve become more confident in my writing abilities. Having Ally, an experienced, educated and published author, provide guidance and feedback on various writing topics has been invaluable. The added benefit that I was not expecting, but pleasantly surprised by, is the camaraderie among and the support received from the other writers in the group. For this developing content writer, it is an hour that goes by much too fast!” — Jacqueline P., The Pittman Advantage

“The Writing Bar allows me to have a dedicated time and space on my calendar JUST for writing. As someone who boasts that writing is not my forte, I am comforted knowing this space is totally free of judgement. Creativity sparks when creatives gather together, and I must say I have been more inspired during these times to write than I have ever been in my normal business schedule. I appreciate Ally providing such a unique space for everyone to gather!” — Dan Rondeau, Graphic Designer, My Marketing VA

“I always look forward to the Writing Bar sessions; they feel like an oasis in the middle of an arid "to do" list.  I have had a lifetime goal of writing a memoir, and the sessions are helping me focus on actual work  toward that dream. I have to say, reading Dear Universe was a huge, inspiring catalyst in joining. I am so grateful for the Writing Bar!” — Linda

“I look forward to our Writing Bar sessions each month. Ally always brings value to each session. I come away from each session with new knowledge. I very much appreciate the community we have and making the commitment of time to my writing practice.” — Angelic Veasman, Lady Powerhouse Solutions
