ARE YOU READY TO LEVEL UP YOUR CRAFT?

Join a passionate group of writers who are dedicated to working together to learn and grow their writing skills throughout 2021.

THE STORY GRID GUILD


A Guild is defined as an "association of craftspeople, often having considerable power," and an "association of people for mutual aid or the pursuit of a common goal."

This is what we have created with the Story Grid Guild.

NEW FOR 2021



As we enter the second year of the Guild, we are adding three new exciting resources for our members.

πŸ’» 

FREE ACCESS TO NEW FIRST PRINCIPLES TRAINING

Throughout 2021 we will release a series of 5 First Principles courses that cover topics such as the Spreadsheet, Foolscap, Five Commandments, and more. Guild members get first, automatic, free access to this series.

First one available in February.

πŸ’‘ 

EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO THE NEW STORY GRID DATABASE

We have been hard at work developing a searchable database of scene types, value shifts, obligatory moments, conventions, and more along with interactive infographics. Throughout 2021, only Guild members will have access to this new treasure trove of story insights.

Launches Q2 of 2021.

πŸ“ 

WEEKLY WRITING ASSIGNMENTS

Every Monday a Story Grid Certified Editor will release a writing assignment. This will give you a focused way to level up your craft with the option to share assignments with your community members for accountability and feedback.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR GUILD MEMBERSHIP?

NEW BOOKS EVERY MONTH

Each month you will receive 1-2 new Story Grid Publishing titles. You will have the digital editions (EPUB, MOBI, PDF and β€” for many titles β€” audiobook) directly in your account. United States residents have the option to get the print editions every month as well.

πŸ‘₯

❀️ 

SUPPORT A CRAFT-FOCUSED PUBLISHER

Our goal with Story Grid Publishing is to provide a home for authors that are focused on the craft, not the business β€” the process, not the results. By joining the Guild, you are supporting this mission.


JOIN THE COMMUNITY


When you join the Story Grid Guild, you become a part of a community of writers dedicated to supporting each other in leveling up their craft.

WHAT CURRENT MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY


"What I have loved the most about being part of the Guild is not only the books, conference calls, and other resources but the community in the forums. Everyone is so helpful, sharing their experience and welcoming all opinions, both by advanced learners and from newbies like me. This is the home I needed to become the best writer I can be."

β€” V. L. Perillo

"In three months I've grown more as a writer than the last two years combined. I expected to learn a lot, but I never expected to be so inspired!

The guild has well surpassed my expectations, and I expected a lot.

I can't estimate the years of writing the guild has saved me due to the access to incredible editors and this tribe of equally driven storytellers."

β€” Don Elliott, author of something soon.

"What I enjoy most about the Story Grid Guild is the mix of engaged story-passionate personalities and all the variety that comes to the table because of the mix. I 'm happy to study my craft on my own, but when Shawn brings psychology, philosophy and neural science and Tim brings practicality and Anne, Larry, Valerie, Leslie and others bring their insights... Wow. They make me WANT to study alongside them. Then, because of the variety of approaches---written, audio only, audio-visual, and teleportation (not really, but someday...) it's like being part of the best in-person writer's group, only I don't ever have to miss a session.

What I'm getting is concentrated expertise I could not have stumbled across on my own, and did not stumble across in graduate school, delivered at my convenience. I also get the benefit of like-minded people discussing what they are getting on the forum, plus what they are being inspired to delve into on their own. I am inspired and humbled by my fellow guilders.

Why join? For me there were two powerful incentives. First, the vision. The vision that Shawn and Tim are spearheading answers every objection I've had to traditional craft building and publishing methods. Their vision is spot on and their resumes give me confidence that they will bring the vision to life. Second, helping them to breathe life into that vision is making me a better story teller."

β€” Donah Grassman, author

"Story Grid has helped me establish clear goals in my writing and editing that has made the process so much more enjoyable and productive in ways no other membership ever has. I highly recommend Story Grid."

β€” Estee Cortez, aspiring author

FAQs

What if I am a 2020 Guild Member?

After you join, we will extend your membership so that your new membership does not overlap with your current membership. You will continue getting all of the other benefits of the Guild without interruption.

What happens when I join?

You will have a link on your My Account page so you can access the Guild Dashboard.

This will give you access to the latest Guild content along with the community forum so you can introduce yourself.

You can access the My Account page from the footer of the Story Grid home page (select "Login To Your Account" from the menu options) or by visiting www.storygrid.com/my-account/.

Throughout your membership, we will email you every Monday with an update on everything happening inside of the Guild.

What happens if I can't attend a live training call with Shawn?

All calls will be recorded and posted to the Guild dashboard within 24 hours. They'll be available for the duration of your membership so you can listen to them at your convenience. You'll also have an opportunity to send Shawn questions in advance.

What if I can't attend the micro scene analysis calls?

As with Shawn's monthly training calls, the scene analysis calls (hosted by our Certified Story Grid Editors) will be recorded and posted to the Guild dashboard within 24 hours. There'll also be plenty of opportunities to review scenes and send questions in advance.

Can I join monthly, or do I have to sign up for the year?

We now have both yearly and monthly membership options. If you join monthly, there is a minimum 3-month commitment.

How do renewals work?

Your membership will be automatically renewed for both the yearly and monthly membership options. Continuing the membership is the only way to lock-in your pricing and avoid future pricing increases.

What if I need to cancel?

If you need to cancel a future renewal, please notify us at [email protected] at least one week before your renewal date. Keep in mind, once you cancel there is a 6-month waiting period to rejoin and you will not be able to rejoin at your previous pricing.

I still have more questions. Who can I contact?

If you've still got questions, simply send us an email at [email protected].
