Hi, Writer-friend!


You need the 540 Writers Community. And the 540 needs YOU.

The 540 is a free community designed to encourage, educate, and equip writers to clearly communicate the unique message God wants us to deliver to the specific reader who needs it most. The 540 community seeks to remove barriers for writers by providing free, virtual opportunities to access stellar education.

And yes, it’s forever free.

Join fellow procrastinators–I mean, writers–as we nag harass encourage each other to keep writing.

What’s the 540? 

TL;DR: Writers encouraging writers to write.

Longer answer: the 540 is a free community for writers. Together, we write, hone our skills, and encourage each other in the writing journey. Sign up below to join the conversation.

We’re an enthusiastic community of writers who love opportunities to interact, learn, and encourage.

What’s up with the name?

We call this writer-math: if we write 540 words per day, we’ll finish 100,000-word first drafts in less than six months. THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT, just a reminder to write regularly.

Do I have to commit to writing 540 words per day?

Nope. Some of us write much less, and some write more. We’re all at different stages in the writing journey. The only true commitment is to encourage other writers. Willingness to learn (even if you’re a published writer) is a plus.

If you think you already know everything about writing, the 540 is probably not for you.

I dream of writing, but my biggest accomplishment is our family Christmas letter. I’m afraid I don’t qualify.

We’d LOVE to have you. The 540 community embraces writers at all stages in the writing journey (which is more like walking in circles than a mountain climb). If you’re interested in writing, open to learning, and willing to encourage others, come on!

The 540 is a safe place for newbies.

I’m an industry leader and although I’d love to encourage and learn, I’m tired of being mobbed when I join a group.

You’re in luck. 540 rules prohibit reaching out to other group members directly with requests. We don’t care if you’re Karen Kingsbury or Stephen King. Here, no one is king. We’re all just writers.

The 540 is a safe place for not-so-newbies.

I’m not a writer, but I have industry experience and I’d love to encourage writers.

We welcome writer-adjacent members (publisher, agent, editor).

Oh, and it’s free. No strings.

We don’t have membership cards, decoder rings or bumper stickers, but we learn something new every week. 

And, hey, maybe we’ll finish our manuscripts.

If you’re struggling to finish a project, you are definitely not alone. We’re in this together!
