The Literati Writers is a participation based online writers' group and support system that provides you with an encouraging community of peers and learning opportunities to help you learn and grow as you pursue your creative goals.
I’ve only been a member for 6 months, but during my time in The Literati Writers my identity as a writer has shifted dramatically. I’m now earning enough money from writing/blogging to pay my mortgage and bills and I’m more confident than ever that I’m on the right path.
This group has had such a positive impact on me, and I can’t thank Dave and The Literati Writers enough for that. Not only has my writing gotten better, but I feel like I have evolved as a person as well. Dave and the folks in the group have widened my perspective from a writing, mental, and spiritual perspective. And, I am forever grateful for that.
With a steadfast compassion, patience, and wisdom far beyond his years, Dave holds space for the possibilities of your writing, and your life, to emerge in ways you anticipated and also those you could not expect. Dave has motivated me, set an example I wish to follow by walking his talk, and helped both hold me accountable for my goals while also celebrating the results as he helps guide their beautiful unfolding.
Joining The Literati Writers has been a great asset to my burgeoning business. I want to express my gratitude for gathering this group of world-changing creatives and entrepreneurs and allowing me to be a part of it. Big thanks to you, Dave.
A bit more than a month ago, I had a chat with Dave about self-editing while writing. One of his suggestions was to experiment with new styles of writing. 50,000 words of fiction later, I can say that it works.
I am enjoying my experience in The Literati Writers tremendously. I love being around people who walk their talk and talk their walk. Every single person in this group inspires me to be better. Thank you!
I love The Literati Writers! I’m grateful because for the longest I’ve been around people who are interested in writing but don’t write. Now, I feel like I learn and grow just by being in this group’s energy.
Thanks to Dave Ursillo and The Literati Writers, writing has become second nature again. This writing group has changed my life. Just by joining, my passion for the craft has increased three fold. Love it.
Dave, I’ve got to thank you for starting The Literati Writers. I am writing more frequently again. I’m allowing the writing flow to come out of me in the ways it wants to, without restraint. My “inner judge” has been disrobed and has helped me access a lot more of the fun of being me!
Having a place like The Literati Writers to publicly make a commitment is so helpful in getting me to my desk and holding myself accountable to the goals I set for myself.. So thank you – I really appreciate it.
I am finding more and more that it is the intersections, the overlaps, the way one shape or color (or person or place) influences another that is the magic of our everyday life. It’s a crazy path I’m on and I’m psyched to be sharing space with the Literati as I walk it and attempt to communicate both visually and through written word.
Dave was in my dream a few days ago. He was at the front of a classroom and encouraging me to “write, write, write,” asking me why I wasn’t writing, and why I was holding back. My subconscious associates Dave as a natural writing mentor, and the leadership he gives to his Literati Writers proves it.
Being a part of the Literati has been life-altering for me. There is resounding forward motion in my life as a creative. My writing is POURING out these days. All of my life, I have held the mics that were put before me, sang the songs requested and simply played the role I thought was most appropriate. But now, I making my own set list, dismissing the band, picking up my own instrument and crooning my heart’s songs. You rock, Dave. I’m really glad to be a part of what you’re doing in the world. :)
I’d recommend you join The Literati Writers, without a doubt. You will find wisdom, entertainment, encouragement and a cataclysmic community filled with love. Here is a place where writers encourage, inspire, share ideas and provide a captivating perspective from their part of the world. I love the intimate setting you are in. We are all there to help one another and are able to to share our honest opinions for the betterment of one another.
One of the greatest decisions I’ve made has been to connect with Dave and he has quickly become a role model in the ways that he lives a life of self-reliance, authenticity, honesty, and openness. I really appreciate him and all that he does, including beyond The Literati Writers. The world really needs more Dave Ursillos walkin’ around. There’d be high-fiving on every corner.
“Simply being around the Literati has given me so much more than anything else in the past eight months, and I’m finally on the right track. Thank you for bringing awesome people together and creating such a supportive community.”
