Writer Therapy and Awesome Contests

Hey everyone, Leisha here.

I know it's not my week to post, but I thought you all would want to know about some really cool things going on at Writer Therapy.

What is Writer Therapy?

I'm so glad you asked.

Writer Therapy is an online webseries for writers, about writers, that is going to air Thursday, Sept 20

They even have a teaser trailer.

Check this out (and yes, there are some Scribblers Cove peeps involved in this cool adventure):

This is what the Writer Therapy group has to say about themselves:

One group. One goal. Get published.
For any writer who has aspired to be published, or any reader who has wanted a “behind the scenes” look at the writing process, Writer Therapy launches their first two online webisodes. The web series follows the life and laughs of a critique group as they (try to) finish their manuscripts and get published. Each webisode runs between 4-10 minutes in length, with twelve webisodes comprising the first season.
The first season kicks off with Chersti, a recent college grad who has just finished her first manuscript. Fortunately, she has her critique group to help her through the querying process. Through the groups’ crazy antics—including everything from stalking famous authors to striking out on a personal quest—might deter from them actually writing, it is perfect research for their books, which will obviously be the BIGGEST thing since Harry Potter or Hunger Games.
Webisodes for season one will air consecutively on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in September-October. Special guest stars include authors Dan Wells, Brandon Mull and more!
More information can be found on the Writer Therapy website at

AND!!!!!!! They are having some killer contests to launch the website. I'll just highlight the awesome first page contest. to check out the others.

Contest information
With the launch of the new website, Writer Therapy will be hosting a 250-word contest. Winners will receive a query critique from an agent. Details will be announced on the Writer Therapy blog on September 10th, the first day of the contest, but here's a sneak peek at some of the prizes:

  1. Thanks for giving us the heads-up, Leisha! I'm marking my calendar. The video was fun, and this looks like a great writers' stop. I hope you're entering the 250 word contest.

    1. Yup, I am. I think we all should enter. :) What do we have to lose?

  2. Hey, Leisha! This sounds great fun. And hooray for Chersti! Thanks for the post.
