Does this sound familiar?
📝 You never seem to be able to make quality time for your creative self. And this is creating a feeling that something is missing.
📝 You struggle to make space for your creative work and when you do manage to wiggle in a bit of writing, you are riddled with guilt for making time for something that isn’t even paying your bills. How dare you spend valuable time writing?!
📝 You get easily frustrated when perfection doesn’t hit the page and you begin to question why you even bothered to call yourself a creative.
We have the solution
We offer you tools and tips which show you how to master your mindset so you can write in the way you’ve always dreamed of writing
Learn writing practices and habits that are nearly impossible to learn on your own.
Make writing a permanent, healthy, and sustainable part of your daily life.
When was the last time you made quality space for your writing?
We bring together brand new and seasoned writers to build practices and habits that are important to us and nearly impossible to do on our own so that through daily mindset work, taking care of our time and bodies, we can bring back the joy, confidence, and balance of daily creation. Together we will also navigate the changing and uncertain world of publishing. We make writing a permanent and healthy and sustainable part of our daily lives.

Frequently asked questions
📎 Do we really get feedback on our writing?
- For sure! Once per month, you'll have an opportunity to submit a couple of pages (using our guidelines) for feedback from the team. Chelene Knight is a published author, a seasoned editor, and works as a new literary agent. She is more than qualified to offer real time, detailed feedback on writing in any genre. In the "our projects" group, there is also an opportunity to join a workshop group of your peers (upon meeting the prerequisites).
- Team Breathing Space Creative is also made up of writers with experience in all genres. You are in good hands ; ) This is also why our membership is priced higher than your average writing membership. We value our time and our expertise!
📎 Will the live sessions be recorded?
- Yes! All sessions (except the silent writing lounges) will be recorded and available for members. But we encourage live attendance so that you can take part and engage!
📎 What is your cancellation policy?
- You may cancel your membership at any time, but we do not offer refunds.
📎 Will you have guest speakers?
- Yes! We have many connections to folks in the wellness and in the publishing industry, so you can expect a few surprise events to pop up! Tee hee!. Our new Guest speaker stage space is where you will find these goodies.
📎 Are there any special benefits to signing up for the annual plan?
- Yes! If you sign up for the annual payment, you will receive a significant discount (the equivalent of three months for free). We also plan to add some other 1:1 bonuses for signing up for the annual plan.
📎 Are there any benefits to staying a member long term?
- You know it! The longer you are a member, the better. You'll have the opportunity to take part in mastermind sessions, workshops, special events and groups available only to members who've been with us for 6 months and longer.
