Success stories from real writers ( just like you!)
In my first session of Life Writers, I wrote and learned more than I ever did before. I am building good habits of a writer. For me, Life Writers was like coming home after being lost in the desert.
Patricia and her team helped me reach my goal of publishing my first memoir and is now continuing to support my efforts to complete my second book in Life Writers.
I’ve been promising myself that I would write my book for probably ten years or more, but it took enrolling in Patricia Charpentier’s Life Writers membership to jumpstart that process. Now, not only am I writing a memoir, but I’m also working on a novel that has been sitting around in notes, images, and in my head forever.
Life Writers helps me to become a more confident writer. It also helps me to stay motivated and disciplined to meet my writing goals. I haven’t seen any programs that even come close to comparing to what Patricia offers, and I have taken dozens of courses over the years.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Were it not for the Life Writers community you have created, it would not have been possible for me to have one of my stories published.
Since I started Life Writers in June 2021, I have written more than forty stories that are in various stages of completion, and I have a list of many more ready for pen and paper. Life Writers has changed my life, and now, I feel confident calling myself a writer.
What to expect in Life Writers
Each month features a live new-member orientation with founder Patricia Charpentier where she’ll walk you through the site, answer your questions, and help you set an intention for the month.
From there, you’ll navigate the get-started roadmap, meet your buddy group, attend our Writers CAFÉ to discuss selected memoirs and pertinent writing topics, consume live and recorded instruction, make yourself accountable with a monthly goals check-in call, and receive feedback on your stories.
You can dedicate as much or as little time as you’d like to both your Life Writers activities and your personal writing.
Lean on your Life Writers community—we’re here for you every step of the way.

The activities within Life Writers vary somewhat week-to-week. Should you wish to participate fully, you can expect to invest an average of two to three hours per week of live meetings, video lessons, assignments, and connecting with your buddy group, in addition to the time you choose to set aside to write your personal stories.
Whether you are crafting poems, fictional stories, or creative nonfiction, the elements of engaging text are all the same. Life Writers exposes its members to devices such as dialogue, crafting scenes, characterization, and more that enhance all writing.
Ultimately, members need to be comfortable using technology, including email, basic word processing, Zoom video conferencing, navigating the Life Writers website, posting assignments, and commenting on the Life Writers website, all of which we can show you how to do.
Life Writers also has written instructions and numerous help videos that show you how to successfully accomplish these tasks.
None of these are difficult, and before long, you’ll be able to do everything you need to with your eyes closed.
If you try out the program, yet find Life Writers is not a good fit for you, email us before the end of your first thirty days of membership, and we will refund your subscription fee. However, we know once you experience Life Writers, you’ll be excited to stay and see what you can accomplish.
