How Many Times Have You Told Yourself That?
More times than you care to admit?
If you’re like me, you have a story and a message that must be shared. You feel called to write it.
But writing your book feels impossible.
Do any of these thoughts sound familiar?
- It’s too hard.
- I have no idea where to start.
- Nobody would want to read what I’ve written anyway.
- I’m afraid I’m not a good enough writer to do justice to my message.
- I just can’t find the time.
You’re about to discover how successful writers overcame each of those lies... and went on to write wildly popular books that spread their message across the world.
After more than 40 years in this field, seeing thousands of passionate writers finish and release their books (and countless more give up and fail), I recognize a clear pattern in the ones who reach their goals and those who don’t.
I’ll tell you about this pattern in just a moment. First, let me introduce myself.
I’m Jerry Jenkins, author of over 190 books — including the Left Behind series. My books have sold over 70 million copies and 21 have hit the New York Times bestseller list.
But without major help, I never could have gotten to where I am today.
Have you ever been told by an editor that your writing belongs in the toilet?
At 19, I was a sportswriter for a daily newspaper. But I really wanted a story in the Features section. So I submitted one with photos to the Features editor.
I got a quick response.
In red pencil at the top of the first page he’d scribbled:
I was crushed.
Eventually, I mustered the courage to approach his desk.
“Sir, could you tell me what’s wrong with this so I can fix it?”
“Sure, Jenkins,” he said. “It’s sh--.”
If you’ve ever taken a hit like that, you know it’s hard to fight back thoughts like:
I’m not cut out for this.
This is too hard.
I should quit.
I staggered back to my desk where my boss — the sports editor — gave me some powerful advice.
“Did you have any misgivings about it?”
I mentioned several things I could have done.
“There you go. Anything you should have done is what you ought to do.”
The next day I resubmitted the story, and the editor immediately accepted it.
That’s the difference the right guidance can make.
The 3 Fast-Forward Buttons That Can Shave Years Off Your Learning Curve
Since then, from keeping my eyes open in the writing field as an author, editor, and publisher for almost half a century, I’ve learned 3 major keys that put a writer’s career in fast-forward:
Too many writers think they simply lack talent. Successful authors know writing is a craft, and they’ve studied and applied the proven secrets of powerful prose. (And it shows!)
Writers who succeed in finishing their books have found a source of inspiration and encouragement — often from a close-knit community of other writers who won’t let them quit.
Successful writers find someone in the business they trust — maybe an author who’s already achieving — to show them the way and help them avoid huge mistakes.
In short — writers who can quickly finish their books, get published, and reach the masses have ONE thing in common:
Too many people succeed at this game for you not to know exactly how they got where they are — and how to follow in their footsteps.
That’s why I’ve created a brand new program where passionate authors have access to:
of the top writing experts in the world
that comes from a writing community invested in your success
more intensive than anything I’ve ever offered before

Praise from Guild Members
"I’ve seen my writing dramatically improve in a few short months, thanks to Jerry’s points about dialogue and self-editing! Learning from a more experienced professional is something many people pay thousands of dollars and travel hundreds of miles to do. I can do it curled up in my pajamas at home!"
- Sarah Pierce
"I joined the Guild with a fully written manuscript but a desperate need to learn how to edit it properly. Since January, I’ve learned to ferociously self-edit, show and not tell, use dialogue to drive more of the story, and choose point of view characters for each scene. The book reads so much better now!"
- Timothy Thomas
"I have tried to embrace all the great info you share, Jerry. The result has been three publishers asking for a book proposal. I am a first-time writer and felt overwhelmed with the process until I found your Guild."
- Elaine Bush
A breakdown of the content categories you’ll have 24/7 access to:
As a bonus for joining, you’ll also get the following resources completely free.
The Complete Writers Guild Archive
You’ll get instant access to everything we’ve already created for Guild Members since we opened this year—every Live Online Workshop, Office Hours recording, Master Class, and Manuscript Repair & Rewrite.
That’s over 50 hours of high-quality training to help you master the craft—along with a handy guide to help you figure out where to start.
The Book Proposal Swipe File
My manager, Robert D. Smith, has a knack for putting together some of the best book proposals publishers have ever seen.
You’ll get access to manuscripts that went on to become New York Times bestsellers.
They make perfect templates and sources of inspiration for your own proposals, and they’re not available anywhere else.
The Art of the Start Video Workshop
This two-part, three-hour video training gives you the tools you need to finally begin writing your book. Today. When you secure your annual Writers Guild membership, you’ll get lifetime access so you can watch this workshop again and again.
The Art of the Start will teach you:
- Pro tricks for beating procrastination and writer's block once and for all
- How to maintain your priorities so you can write without guilt and stay insanely productive (this is how I’ve written 189 books while also being a husband and father of three)
- How to find and cultivate your elusive, mysterious writing voice — and how to best use it
- How to create believable, credible, and unforgettable characters
- What really sets apart bestselling story ideas (and where they come from)
How Much Does Membership Cost?
One of the biggest barriers to top-quality writing coaching like this has always been the cost, because in the past you had to attend a writers conference to get it.
That’s why I’m so excited we’ve built a writers community you can access 24/7 without leaving your house, one that offers you the same top-quality training at a fraction of the cost.
Listen, I know it might take quite a leap of faith to be among the first to join this type of community.
That’s why I’m determined to make this decision as easy as possible for you and reward your faith in me.
If you join the Guild during this special enrollment period, you’ll lock in a rate that will never increase...
You’ll be able to join for only $370 a year.
Your Guild Membership Includes:

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
My number one goal is to help you make real, tangible progress as a writer. That means your confidence will grow. Your writing will shine. Your work will find its way into more hands. And your message will find its way into more hearts.
If you join, actively engage with the material and community, and feel you are not making progress, just let my team know via email within the first 30 days of your purchase and we’ll cheerfully send you a 100% refund. No hassle, no guilt trip, no questions asked.
You Shouldn’t Join The Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild If...
(I'll admit, we are not building this for everyone.)
Rather, we’re building this community for you if you’re serious about making real progress as a writer.
We are NOT building this for:
People looking for a formula or silver bullet:
These simply do not exist. Sure, I offer tips and techniques that will rapidly improve your writing—but there is no substitute for hard work and commitment, the essential ingredients for a successful writer.
People who feel entitled to bestsellers:
Many online writing courses and programs promise you instant bestseller status, legions of adoring fans, and riches beyond your wildest dreams. I’m not promising any of that, because nobody can.
My goal is to help you, not to break your heart with promises I can’t keep.
The truth is, my first New York Times bestseller was my 75th book. My first mega-bestseller, Left Behind? That was my 125th. I’ve been around long enough to know there are no guarantees, and anyone who tells you there are is steering you down a bad path.
What I Will Promise You Is This...
Where Will You Be a Year from Now?
I know what it’s like to be where you are right now.
Wanting to improve. Wanting to finish your book. Wanting to be published. Wanting to get your message out.
It’s not that you lack desire or passion. It’s a question of, How do I actually do this?
I’ve designed my Writers Guild to be the bridge from where you are now to where you want to be, and to get you there as quickly as possible.
I want to help you do this, which is why we’ll give you 30 days just to see if it feels right. Again, if you give it a shot and don’t feel you’re making progress, we will give you a full refund.
Just think for a moment...
Where could you be a year from now with consistent, daily access to these resources?
What would your writing be like with support and feedback from this type of community?
How would it feel to hold your finished manuscript in your hands?
Better yet, how will it feel to hold your published book in your hands?
Join the Guild before this special enrollment period ends and let me join you on your journey.
