Are You Book Curious or Book Ready?
You’ve heard that writing a book will help your career. You’ve watched other colleagues step onto bigger stages and become more visible. You’re curious about whether this is the right next step for you, but you haven’t taken action … yet.
You know you have a book inside you. You know you have something worth saying and that there are people who need to hear it. But the whole process of writing a book feels overwhelming and mysterious. How do you get started? How do you find the time to write that book you know you need to write?

You’ll leave OutWrite Authors knowing exactly why you want to write this book, what you want to say, who it is for, and how it will be structured, plus you’ll create a detailed outline and an actionable next steps plan to write your book and get it published.
Led by published author and certified book coach, Suzette Mullen (she/her). Take your career to the next level and get the tools you need to raise your voice and write an impactful nonfiction book today! The world is ready and waiting for you to take action.

How does the class work?
What if I've never written a book before?
What if I've already published a book before?
What if I'm an ally?
What if I can’t be on the calls?
I’ve taken online courses before — and never finished. Is there any accountability built in?

We need your voice!
Experts have published books. At least that's the world's view. Combine that societal truth with the fact that 97% of the publishing world is heteronormative.
There are queer subject matter experts on everything! From tech to marketing to law to history, to everything else - there's some queer person who knows just as much as anyone else. We need your books!Apply Here
