Dear Writer:

Are you ready to tell your stories?
Do you want to sell more books?
Have you been searching for your writing community?

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou

We've totally been there.

Writing can be challenging, no matter how much you love it. And yes, writing books takes time. But that time passes anyway, and there you are, thinking endlessly about your book while reading someone else’s.

Or you’ve got the digital equivalent of a suitcase filled with manuscripts under the bed, but you don’t have the confidence – or the knowledge – to get them out into the world.

Maybe you’ve already kicked off your career and you want to increase your earnings. No more working for the man, you’ve got readers to write for – if only you knew how to connect to them.

Plus, you want a fun, no-drama place to talk about writing.

And we want to help you.

"We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect." - Anaïs Nin

Our books change the world. When women write, we:

  • connect to others who need to hear they’re not alone
  • give hope to people going through tough times
  • expand our universe – and our readers’
  • bring our expertise to those who need it
  • make money doing what we love
  • get free therapy!

Here's what the Salon will do for you

Build your confidence and get you writing

Keep you focused with online writing sprints

Teach you all we know about the writing world

Show you how to polish your book for publication

Take you through the publishing process

Bring you expert sessions to guide you

Help you position your book as a must-buy

Create a fun, safe space that you can call home

"My only advice is to stay aware, listen carefully, and yell for help if you need it." - Judy Blume​

Why us?

We’re women who write commercial women’s fiction, memoirs, romances, blogs, young adult/new adult, thrillers – and that’s just this week!

We’re traditionally published, self-published, and embarking on the self-publishing journey.

We know what it’s like to do everything for everyone else, and what it takes to do it for ourselves.

We’ve built networks that allow us to bring you some of the best writers and experts in the business.

We met through a shared love for Paris, bonded over our passion for writing, and now support and challenge each other to write and publish as much – and as profitably – as possible.

And we want the world to know how fabulous you are!

"It's never too late to be what you might have been." - George Eliot

FAQs

Who is the Paris Writing Salon for?

Our retreats are geared primarily toward women, and those who identify as women, while the Salon is open to all writers, regardless of gender, age, experience, and genre.

What do I need to join?

A love of writing and an internet connection. No special software is needed – most of our sessions will be on Zoom, which is a free download that can also be joined via web browser. (Except not Internet Explorer. No one loves IE, not even Microsoft 🙁 )

Will everything be recorded?

All our guest speakers, classes, and themed chats will be available on the website for you to watch at any time. As well as that, handouts and other documents will be available to download.

You guys live all around the world – what time will the sessions be held?

Just as we live in different timezones, so do our subscribers. So we’ll stagger sessions to make it as even as possible, and repeat some.

But if you do miss something, the recording and handouts will be available online soon after, so you can watch (and rewatch) whenever it suits you.

What’s the cost?

Our Charter Membership cost is $27/month or $270/year–that’s less than a Starbucks a day. But take advantage of that introductory price now, because it won’t last forever!

Registered for our retreat? Salon membership is included in your package, so please contact us for your login details if you don’t already have them. 

Can I pause/opt-out of my subscription?

Of course! We’d never want you to be unhappy. If you sign up and decide it’s not the right fit for you, you can unsubscribe at any time.

How can I be sure this is a safe writing space?

We’ve seen our share of drama on the interwebs, and we’re not fans. All subscribers will be asked to agree to a code of conduct upon signing up, with the understanding that we will enforce it. The same applies on our official Facebook group.

I have more questions.
