I’m Sarah Selecky, author of

I’m also the founder of Sarah Selecky Writing School.

I opened my online creative writing school in 2010. Our programs offer a deep and thorough study of craft and technique that respects your intellect and your intuition.⁠

Learn with a peer-based community that’s built on a spirit of generosity, wonder, and mutual respect.
