An Important Journey.

Many of us can see where we want to go. We know that we deeply want a writing life we love. We want to write our truth, share our work in ways that feel right to us, and allow our light to shine as bright as it can. We want to feel joyful, align with our purpose, and step into our greatest potential.


That’s what a soul-fulfilled writing life is about. It’s a way of living in which we take ourselves seriously and write with the wisdom we hold in our hearts. It’s filled with intentional actions that invest in our dreams and lift us up so that we can explore and step into what we are capable of achieving. 

The soul-fulfilled writing life is our actualization of the writer we can and deeply want to be. And it’s one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves as writers.

Monthly Membership Features

Journey for the Writer’s Soul offers the support you need to shift into the writing life that lifts you up and helps you shine, including:


Our beautiful new course is available exclusively inside the Journey for the Writer's Soul membership. Made up of a series of deeply nourishing and soul-affirming lessons and activities, the "Pathway" course guides you step-by-step into the writing life you want: the writing life that nurtures and fulfills you. The powerful steps include making a commitment, empowering yourself by filling your needs, bringing your heart into your practice, taking focused action, and shining your brightest light. Start immediately and work at your own pace, whenever you wish. We can’t wait to walk alongside you and see what you can do when you’re thriving in your writing life.


Gain insights and inspiration from others as you learn and share your experiences. Designed to help you give support and gain encouragement from others as you step forward, this is a safe space for you to be inspired and supported. It is hosted on a private, moderated platform where you will have access to instant chat with other members, a profile page, and several curated discussion/chat areas. Your voice, insights, and collaboration matter. Whether you choose to share every day or once a month, your community will be here for you.


Carefully and soulfully created materials help you begin and step forward on your path. Listen to guided meditations, access a library of ideas to help you bring self-care and inspiration into your daily life, complete beautiful downloadable workbooks, access an expanded members-only section of the Weekly Reflections (along with a new challenge activity, discussions, and ongoing access to your favorite reflections) and more. Our curated lessons, activities, reflections, discussions, tips, and more are available to access (and re-access) as often as you need.


Designed to help you stay on track – and feel supported along the way – our Check-Ins offer connection, guidance, and support. We meet in writing and welcome you to stop by at your convenience over the first few days of each month. In 30-60 minutes, this dedicated group coaching time will help you be re-inspired, grounded, and empowered to step forward and thrive in the month ahead.


Put the progress you’re making to work as you collaborate on a new topic in a vibrant, collaborative workshop. Over the course of three days, we will dive deep into a discussion topic and help form the words and ideas that will be the foundation for the next Words for the Writer’s Soul Magazine


Journey for the Writer's Soul is designed to be simple yet powerful and transformative. No matter how deep you want to go into creating your soul-fulfilled writing life, we will rise up to meet you with resources to explore, tips to help you overcome hurdles, and tools to empower your steps forward. We’re here because we believe in you, and our membership is filled with impactful support to help lift you up.


The doors to Journey for the Writer’s Soul are always open, and you are always welcome. Come in when it works for you, for as long as it feels right. Journey for the Writer's Soul is accessible on desktop or laptop from wherever you are, and it also has its own app for those who prefer mobile devices. We recommend spending about 60-90 minutes per week to start and then adjusting depending on what you need and what benefits you most. We have intentionally created a beautiful experience that you can access easily… so that you can focus your energy on stepping into your potential.

More about our PATHWAY COURSE

Available exclusively inside Journey for the Writer's Soul is the Pathway course, created to answer the question of HOW to create your soul-fulfilled writing life. Made up of beautiful, nourishing lessons and activities divided into steps, this course is a roadmap to help guide you into the writing life you can create.

There are five distinct steps in the Pathway course:

STEP ONE: Make a commitment and build a solid foundation from which to step forward. With a soul-affirming lesson, a beautiful activity, and tips and tools to help you overcome blocks to beginning your journey, you'll be empowered to step forward. At the end of this step, you'll be able to say, "I am committed to creating my soul-fulfilled writing life."

STEP TWO: Take care of your needs and replenish your energy by making adjustments in your life that feel right to you – in ways that empower and support you. This step is filled with beautiful resources including guided meditations, focused activities, and journaling prompts to help you go as deep as you need in order to replenish and rebalance. When you have completed this step, you will know, "I am filling my needs so that I can feel and be my best."

STEP THREE: Listen to your heart and practice trusting your heart’s guidance as you move forward into what is possible. Complete beautifully designed workbooks as you connect and bring your heart deeply into your writing practice. By the end of this step, you will be able to say: "I am listening to my heart’s wisdom and guidance."

STEP FOUR: Take action that is right for you and move forward in the direction you want to go. With a powerful lesson and activity that helps you release roadblocks, you'll be empowered to take action that is deeply right for you. After this step, you will confidently know: "I am taking actions that are aligned with the life I want."

STEP FIVE: Thrive and shine by embracing, enjoying, and living your soul-fulfilled writing life to the fullest. The lesson features powerful, customized guidance to help you thrive in ways that fulfill your heart and soul, helping you create an ongoing practice that continues to nurture and fulfill you. When you have completed this step, you will be able to say, "I am thriving as a writer and living my best writing life."

Go deep into each step or breeze through to simply collect the tools you need – the Pathway course is self-paced depending on what you need. Along the way, you'll receive bonus deep-dives, helpful guidance, and a supportive community who will be cheering you on and celebrating alongside you on your journey.

Your Guide: Melanie Steele

I’m thrilled to invite you to join me in the beautiful membership space I created for writers. My greatest joy comes from helping writers shine, and this journey is my dream come true. When I left school with an MA in writing and counseling, I started teaching and quickly found my gift was helping writers… not by focusing on developing their skills (which I find are often stronger than they think and for which there are many quality resources available) but by focusing on them. For the past 20 years, I have been helping writers find, embrace, and become their best selves. I have worked with many of you in my retreats, courses, and magazine, and each step has helped prepare me to create this beautiful place where writers are welcome, lifted up, empowered, and deeply supported. I can hardly wait to work with you and see how bright you can shine when you take this journey. Email me.
