Want to START WRITING this year?

You’ve always wanted to write and don’t know how to start? Or maybe you’ve written before, but your creativity needs a little push?

The beginning of the year is an opportunity to write a new chapter…whether that’s of your personal narrative or an actual book.

To become a writer, it doesn’t matter what you write, but how often you write.

So let’s do this together!

Join me for a 3-week writing sprint. Registration will stay open until the next course starts in January 2021.

I’ll send you the writing prompts. All you have to do is show up and do the work.

Are you in?


This is an informal and FREE writing challenge to help you (and me) to kickstart 2021 with a writing sprint.

For three weeks, every day of the week you’ll receive a writing prompt and a link to a singing bowl meditation to help you to get into the writing zone.

Once a week, there will be a live writing session. An optional Facebook Group will help us build momentum by sharing our writing.

All it takes is 10 minutes a day!


  • create a regular writing practice
  • become a faster and more confident writer
  • experience the joy of creative self-expression & the healing power of writing
  • re-connect with your creative potential

Ready to join?

You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories.

― Anne Lamott

Course starts again on January 1st, 2021.

Registration stays open throughout the year.

Daily writing prompts in your inbox for 21 days

to kickstart your writing (and mine)!


I am Kerstin Pilz, Phd

I am a published author and former academic with 20 years university teaching experience and a doctorate in literature. I’ve published an academic monograph, peer-reviewed book chapters and articles, as well as lifestyle and travel features including for the New York Times, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian.

I discovered the healing power of writing when I went through a difficult time. Writing was my anchor and allowed me to write a new chapter for myself. I left my tenured position to step into a new version of myself.  I now live in Hoi An where I run a weekly writers group and lead multi-day writing retreats.

In 2020 I am completing my memoir Falling Apart Gracefully. I need this writing sprint as much as you do to kickstart my writing routine! I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
