This is a "do the work" guarantee -- meaning refunds are only granted to students who fully engage with the program, follow our instructions, and fail to make meaningful progress.
How do I know if I'm ready for this?
YWW Author is a good fit for any young writer who is highly motivated to pursue a career in writing and is ready to work on building their author platform.
There is no need to have a completed manuscript or book proposal, provided you are able to focus on platform-building without neglecting your writing.
The reality for most authors is that they need to keep platform-building and writing moving forward at the same time. If you are ready to grow in that area you will get a lot of benefit from this track.
If you have any doubts about whether you are ready, go ahead and apply anyway. We will review your application and only extend an invitation if we believe you are ready to get significant value out of the program. Once you receive your invitation you will have until August 18th to accept or decline.
What can I expect to accomplish?
Our focus is on coming alongside young people who are committed to making this whole “writing as a career” thing happen. Depending on where you start from, how hard you work, and how long you stay in the program… your results will vary.
We definitely can’t promise anything like, “You will have an agent. You will be published. Your platform will triple in size. Or you will make thousands of dollars.” But obviously, our goal is to at least help you hit the next major milestone in your writing journey -- and give you a foundation in terms of mindset and strategy that will serve you even after your time in the program comes to an end.
Provided you give this program an honest effort, you can expect:
Depending on where you are starting from and how long you stay in the Author track… that could take you to a book contract and beyond.
What is your refund policy for this program?
Your investment is covered by a 60-Day, "Do The Work" Guarantee. If you fully engage with the coaching program, follow our instructions carefully, and fail to make meaningful progress within the first two months, simply email us for a prompt refund: [email protected]
How much time does it take?
This will vary a lot per student. The program itself doesn’t take a ton of time, but how much time you spend working on the things we discuss will vary dramatically. The initial strategy call will involve setting realistic goals based on how much time you think you can spend on writing-related activities.
Ultimately, what you get out of this coaching program will depend on how much time/effort you are able to invest. You’ve got to be ready to put in the work.
If you are barely finding time to write and can never seem to get around to platform building because you are too busy with school / extracurricular activities / etc. — then joining YWW Author won’t magically free up your time.
However, if you are able and willing to jump in and start taking action — and just need a plan you can feel confident about… then this would be perfect.
We’ll help you figure out what you should be doing and how to do it (and help you keep moving forward when you get stuck). You just need to be available to actually go out and take action. If you can’t commit to that, then this will still be very educational, but you’ll miss out on a lot of the value.
How soon will my application be reviewed?
All applications should be reviewed and responded to within 24 hours. If more than 24 hours has passed, please contact us: [email protected]
Do I have to join if I apply?
There’s no commitment simply because you apply. If your application is accepted you’ll have until the deadline on August 18th to make up your mind.
