Courageous Wordsmith

A sanctuary space for writers, among creative peers, using simple frameworks as support.

About Us

We're kindred writers who guide and encourage each other as we cultivate stories, heal our spirits, and nurture our Muses together. 

Are you with us?

Why This Is For You

You have stories to tell. Projects to create. A book? A podcast? You name it.

Is it your time to start (or continue)? Please join us.

In Courageous Wordsmith Collective, we bring together (emerging) practicing writers to capture our big narrative arcs so that in sharing our experience with the world...


  • ... we can get clear on the stories we tell ourselves and share publicly;
  • ... move forward from raw inklings to inspired work;
  • ... and ultimately, tap into wisdom and healing through a writing process, supported by a small circle of fellow creatives within a larger collective.

We'll share what we know about writing and offer access to writers who inspire us.

You’ll receive inspiration among fellow creatives.

We’ll welcome your voice.

Ready for a dedicated project or to deepen your practice?

 Join a Circle. Gather with peers in a private workshop space and Zoom Idea Parties. Share writing, accountability, and meant-for-you guidance.

We're in this together. But remember, you'll move forward with your chosen content, in your way, at your pace.

This isn't a sprint. It's also not a marathon. It's a pilgrimage.

This story is all yours.

We're here to guide you, wherever you find yourself now.


Meet Your Guides

I'm Amy Hallberg, Story Mentor, Editor & Certified Master Coach. 

I'm also an award-winning author and working creative who knows that while writing is by nature a solitary pursuit, nobody does it alone. (I wouldn't want to.)

I know the longing to be a writer. 

I know how creative partnerships matter. 

Most of all I know that my book (and other big projects) would not exist without sanctuary space, compassionate witness, and cross-pollination.

That's what we're offering, with this FREE Collective (think of it as a Writers' Salon) and paid Membership Circles (a small workshop group when you're ready for more).

Based on my experience, I'm crafting this collective with my friend Nicole Diaz.

Hi there, I'm Nicole Diaz. I'm a certified coach, creative entrepreneur, and former software executive.

I'm also a self-taught mixed media artist, teacher, and writer.

As a busy mom, I know firsthand the struggle of trying to balance career and family responsibilities.

I also understand the importance of creative practices and communities, pockets of sanctuary that nourish our lives from the inside out.

In my coaching, I help clients tap into their unique purpose and the story they're meant to share. Together, we get clear on where they're going and design simple structures to help them move forward in their creative journeys.

I get it. I really do, because I've struggled with overthinking, resistance, and confusion—the same challenges my clients face.
I also know there's a better way.

I'm so happy you're here and look forward to seeing you in the Collective!
