Regenerative Writing with the Amherst Writers and Artists Method

Janine and Tarja create an amazing space for writers of all levels to create their work together, in community. The way they teach the AWA method is wonderful. I feel inspired and super encouraged every time we get together. I also love that, even as a “newbie” writer, my work is welcomed and appreciated. And I’ve made some great friends through this group as well! A win win!
— Shannon Hughes, writer
Love everything about the Regenerative Writing classes with Moxie Road—the community of writers, the writing prompts, the dedicated time to explore my story. The AWA process honors the rawness of just-written work, creating a positive experience for sharing wherever your imagination takes you.

Publishing Services

Working with Moxie Road was critical to the success of my book’s publication. Initially, they helped me develop a timeline and keep me on track, but eventually they were instrumental in my book’s design and layout. I had tried to do it myself and while I was able to create something, it did not look professional. Once Moxie Road got involved, the project came to life and my book looked both beautiful and expertly laid out. I’m used to doing things by my self and it was new for me to have to rely on others. I could not have asked for a more diligent and committed partner for my book’s publication. Thank you Moxie Road for helping me realize my goal!

New Year, New Moxie

Dear Janine and Tarja, thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful working day and inspirational meet up on Saturday. The day FLEW by and I left floating 2 feet off the ground. Every aspect of it was so thoughtful and well-executed. I texted my husband and said “This is an introvert’s paradise!! I’ve loving this day.”

I’m happy to say that I was able to get out my first draft for the children’s book I’ve been carrying in my head for YEARS. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Big thanks to both of your for your encouragement and support!

Finishing School

Finishing School was just what I needed, just when I needed it! I was 90% finished with my first novel and feeling ‘stuck’. In this small supportive group of writers, I learned:

1. To set small realistic and measurable goals and reward myself for meeting them

2. To manage my time so that I make the most of every day

3. To be kind to myself when I waste time or miss my goals

I highly recommend Finishing School and the Moxie Road leaders, Tarja and Janine, to anyone who needs a very loving kick in the butt!

Social Media Consulting

The Moxie Road team created a comprehensive social media campaign around a milestone event and guest for the Midlife Mixtape Podcast. They communicated clearly, were responsive to feedback, and best of all, flexible in adapting the campaign in response to user analytics. The impact of their work in generating new audience interest and building engagement was immediate, and has lasted.
