Mary Oliver's poem The Summer Day ends with this question:

“Tell me, what is you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?”

This course is the only one of its kind that dives beneath the craft and business of writing to what lies beneath our words: our emotions, histories and dreams, exploring the true source of our words—that deep place where we joyfully, fearlessly create our most authentic art.

Before I Tell You All About this Life-Changing Program, Let's Talk About Who This Is Really For...

You're a dreamer with no shortage of ambition who's tired of writing manuscripts only to see them rejected. You're ready to move past fear and self-doubt, to start the project of your heart, or to finish it. To write the words you know you have inside you, the ones you know will impact many lives.

Whether You're...

  • A writer feeling frustrated, lost and uninspired—who wants to jumpstart creative growth
  • A published author eager to write that break-through project
  • A not-yet-published writer who wants to write but doesn't know how to get started
  • A writer who has a ton of great ideas but never seems to be able to stick with them long enough to finish a project
  • A writer who dreams of publishing but worries you'll never be good enough
  • A writer who's struggling to recover your creativity post-pandemic

You're in the right place! And I'm going to tell you exactly how Wild & Precious Writer will give you the tools, inspiration, and unparalleled support on your journey to creating your best writing yet.

By the end of this program, you will have:

 

Nailed down your purpose by creating an Artist's Declaration (instead of spending yet another year on the what should I write? merry-go-round)

 

Discovered your “U” (Unique!) Factor and identified authentic subject matter from your own life that will set your next book apart on a crowded bookshelf.

 

Developed new methods to work through fear and silence your inner critic.

 

Eliminated time (or lack of it) as an obstacle to your writing progress.

 

Unlocked new doors to inspiration and productivity by using your whole body to write.

 

Infused your writing practice with joy and gratitude to carry you through any rough patches.

"Irene Latham is not only my poetic forever friend, but someone who through kindness, patience and gentle nudging, made me a better writer.

If you're looking to find joy, authenticity, and consistency in the craft of writing, there's a select number of humans equipped to help get you there. Irene is one of them. #lathampower"

Irene Latham is a catalyst for goodness and growth. Working with her nurtured an exceptionally creative burst that resulted in writing joy, unexpected writing flow, and a lovely literary journal publication.

Nancy Milford

Irene Latham has inspired me to create, to write, and most of all find and share my unique voice. Irene, with great compassion, taught me to harness creativity with a bit of hard work and devotion and set me on a road to new adventures. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

April Halprin Wayland

Working with Irene has been a joy and a privilege. She changed the way I think about poetry, the way I write poetry, and the way I teach poetry. I guarantee she'll change the way you write. Irene makes you think outside the box and look inside your heart.

What's Inside

Stanza 1: Defining the Creative Relationship

Writing is a relationship. Break through creative uncertainty and paralysis by creating clarity of purpose: What can you offer? What do you want from this relationship, and why?

Highlights

Use my proven formula for creating an Artist's Declaration. This will give you a tool for decision-making and a roadmap for achieving your creative desires.

Discover your Writing Energy. Examine mentor texts to identify your Writing Ideal.

Use what you've learned to create Customized Affirmations you can really believe in to harness the power of attraction and move you closer to your dreams.

 

Stanza 2: Cultivating Your “U” Factor

There's a place for imitation in art, but the sooner you can tap into what makes you “U” (unique!), the quicker you'll be on the way to creating breakthrough projects that are not only more marketable, but most fulfilling.

Highlights

Mine your life by asking yourself Two Big Questions designed to help you discover experiences and proclivities that demand creative exploration.

Ignite your creativity with the power of metaphors to reveal your only-you heart and mind through a Synesthesia Exercise.

 

Stanza 3: Facing Fear & Other Monsters

Suffering is an inevitable part of the creative (or any!) life. Instead of allowing your creativity to wither when faced with fear, self-doubt, rejection, and that bullying Inner Critic, learn ways to make friends with these emotions.

Highlights

Deconstruct your fear by adopting 14 new fear-facing practices.

Break through lethargy to discover the power of creative Improvisation as a method to get unstuck.

Learn how to use your Inner Critic for good, not evil and establish a behavior management plan that really works.

Become less reactive to rejection by incorporating a gratitude practice.

 

Stanza 4: Reinventing Time & Relativity

You have more time than you think—and often, using time as an excuse is simply Resistance. With a few simple tweaks to your mindset and attitude, you can be more productive around the clock.

Highlights

Be empowered by Setting the Date and even planning the Honeymoon for after you finish your next or current project.

Learn the value of a “Morning Pages” practice, and replace the word “habit” with a much more powerful word.

Discover how “writing in the cracks” of your life can transform your productivity.

Write while you're dreaming with a method I call Story-Problem Programming.

 

Stanza 5: Writing with Your Whole Body

Sure, you can write with pen in hand or fingers at the keyboard. But some of the best writing happens away from the paper and screen.

Highlights

Discover 5 simple physical acts to inspire new words and fresh ideas.

Get craftsy! Ignite your creativity through hands-on Creativity Dates.

Find out the value of going wordless. Learn how to cultivate inner silence and and how to hone your listening skills for catching deeper meanings and insights.

 

Stanza 6: Making Space for Joy and Wonderment

So much of writing is learning to let go. In this stanza we'll focus on how to End on Empty (aka “finishing strong”) through service, ritual, and celebration.

Highlights

Build writing confidence through micro-actions and move toward a more joyful writing practice by giving it away / being of service to other writers.

Cleanse yourself of negative writing mojo (i.e. checking Amazon reviews! Number of “likes!” Comparing self to others!) by creating a “Release Me” Ritual.

Using what you're learned in this course, it's time to Redefine—and Celebrate!— Your Success.

Burning Q's your fellow writers have asked before grabbing their access:

 

Still Thinking about it?

You should give Wild & Precious Writer a 14 day risk-free shot if you're motivated by any one of the following:

You want to succeed as a writer... like... really badly.

Whether you're stuck

whether you can't start

can't finish

are tired of rejections

tired of feeling like you aren't good enough...

I personally cannot wait to guide you over these next 6 weeks!

The practices and techniques I've collected over the past twenty years from so many sources that I am going to share with you have literally transformed my life.

I've experienced first-hand what it feels like to transition from a writer collecting rejection after rejection, feeling like nothing I write will ever be good enough... to having 10 book projects in the publishing queue all at once and a notebook full of so many new highly-marketable, joyful ideas I can't possibly write them all.

More than anything else, I want to share that with you today.

If you're a striving writer, published or not, you owe it to yourself to at least take a risk-free plunge to see what diving into the deep emotional core of yourself can do for your writing.

To experience firsthand the hope, confidence, fulfillment, and joy these methods provide—and to take real, tangible steps to transforming the lives of hundred and thousands of your future readers all over the world.

Should you choose to accept my invitation, I personally guarantee that for the next 8 weeks will be completely and utterly life-changing for your and your writing.

I look forward to sharing this Wild & Precious Writer journey with you.

All my best,

Irene Latham
