“Write Hard. Amanda’s course for writers offers decades of wisdom distilled into jewels of wisdom. Each session builds effortlessly on each other, but what I liked most about the experience was the holistic approach the course took. If writing was as easy as just following a process than all of us would just write effortlessly. What the Write Hard course offers are the understanding and tools we need to work through our own “hard” stuff. By leaning into the hard parts of our story we are able to find the flow that was being blocked. I highly recommend the Write Hard course to anyone who is ready to get real with their own writing and start the journey of embracing their own voice.” Diana Henderson, business owner, photographer and authentic brand consultant.
