Welcome to Writerscape
I'm so glad you're here.
My name is Amy Stuart and I'm an educator, novelist and mom to three boys. When I started writing my first novel over a decade ago, I believed that unless I found a quiet and inspired few hours every day, I would never get any writing done. Over time, I realized how unsustainable that was for me, given I was raising small kids and working full-time. Those quiet inspired hours simply weren't possible for me.
So, I started writing in smaller chunks of time wherever and whenever I could find them. Eventually I did finish that novel, and another, and then another. The key for me was discarding any rigid notions I had about what the writing life was supposed to look like, and instead finding a way to build a writing life that worked for me. Because the rest of my life wasn't going on pause so I could write, I needed to find a sustainable way to fit it in. I founded Writerscape to support other writers in doing the same.
Writerscape is a community and space for aspiring and emerging writers. Our core belief is that anyone can build a sustainable writing practice, whether you have hours every day or only twenty minutes at a time, here and there; whether you're working on a novel or a memoir or a collection of poetry, or anything in between. Our plans? Well, we've posted our first free webinar, with more to come. We'll soon be launching video writing prompts for kids. We are working hard to create very affordable self-paced courses. As always, when you need that push to get started, you can find fun writing prompts on our Instagram page or here.

Now let's get writing.
