 Writing Practice is a six-week, self-guided course that uses audio prompts and peer-led discussion to inspire you, keep you focused, and connect you to an active writing community. Only available for Centered members.

What are Writing Practice Sessions?

This program is like a yoga class for your writing. It warms up your writing muscles and keeps you strong and flexible.

It gets you in the state of mind where you can easily receive images, scenes, and dialogue without feeling forced and thinky. Flow!

Constant change in life is natural (as distracting as it is). Writing Practice steadies you, and helps you surf the waves.

Writing Practice is the foundation of a grounded writing life. It installs a habit of writing regularly.

All you have to do is show up.

How it works:

Every Sunday for six weeks, I’ll drop a new audio lesson. In these self-guided sessions, you’ll be led through a series of writing prompts and exercises that you can do at any time of day or week.

All you need is a notebook or paper, a few fast-writing pens, and a comfortable and quiet place to write.

Once a week, you log in to the Writing Practice online classroom. As soon as you press “play” on the audio component of the week’s session, I will guide you through one hour of deep writing prompts and exercises.

The sessions are simple, beautiful, unexpected: all writers are welcome, regardless of genre or experience.

Once you’ve completed the week’s writing practice, you’re ready to join your fellow writers in the Writing Practice forum. There, you can share your work and learn together. 

Accessibility Note: Transcripts are available for the audio lessons in this course.


Writing Practice Sessions are offered as a part of Centered, our online writing community.  Your membership includes Writing Practice Sessions, plus all of our regular events, workshops, and community meet-ups. 

Membership fees are on a sliding scale, starting at $38/month.

Praise for Writing Practice:

If you’ve done these sessions with me before, you know how powerful they are:

Sarah Selecky Writing School

“Although I feel in my heart and soul I am a writer, I’m a writer who sabotages consistent writing. Signing up for Sarah’s program enabled me to stoke the creative fire in a safe, comforting way and encouraged me to trust my inner voice. I’ve learned that even the smallest of details, when given the opportunity to unfold on paper, can be profound.”

Sarah Selecky Writing School

“Being led through the guided prompts and not having to keep time was very freeing. I loved the order of the exercises: the reliability of the pattern allowed us to loosen up with lists and images and then move into scenes and character. So amazing.”

Sarah Selecky Writing School

“It was so nice to set aside time and have Sarah’s voice to guide me through the exercises and to have her excitement come through. It’s a real boost for a solitary activity.”

Sarah Selecky Writing School

“I am a freelance writer and lead creative writing workshops, but Sarah’s Writing Practice sessions gave me the chance to do something that I rarely do—slow down and make time in my day to focus on my own writing. Each week, I came away from the sessions with renewed energy and determination to turn the results of these writing prompts into stories that I want to tell.”

“I loved this and it has helped me stay in touch with my writing practice. Thank you.”

“I found the writing prompts a lot of fun. This is my first time doing anything like this. By the third week, I was extremely comfortable with the session format.”
