The Writer’s Manifesto: Stop Writing to Be Read & Adored

I’m excited to announce the launch of my first eBook! After weeks of writing, editing, and formatting, I’m pleased to now share with you: The Writer’s Manifesto.

Pow! This is a good one, a wake up call and just what you need to read. Thanks Jeff, for sharing your art.

About the manifestoWriters Manifesto Book Cover

The Writer’s Manifesto is a small eBook about getting back to the heart of writing.

Based on a blog post I wrote called “Writers Don’t Write to Get Published,” this short manifesto is a call for writers to fall back in love with writing for the love of it.

I intentionally made the eBook short and sweet, so that you could read it in one sitting.

If you are a writer, this might be just what you need to reclaim your  freedom and rediscover the joy of writing. I heartily recommend it.
—Michael Hyatt // Chairman, Thomas Nelson

  1. This manifesto was pure poetry. I felt the inspiration, and for the first time like someone else was able to put in words what I felt and simultaneously needed to hear. It inspired me to write a booklet for my readers- my manifesto, my promise to them. Have a read (it’s a little long, but ay, it’s full o’ heart: https://cl.ly/000r3u2b0R36/download/Everyone%20can%20write%20a%20fandomworthy%20novel%20FREE.pdf ) Anyhow I’m hooked on everything you have to offer writers and am so glad I found your work. I finally feel like I’m on the road to success I’ve hunted for for so long. I’m saving up now to try to afford the Tribe Writers course too. Thank you Jeff for your generosity and your brilliant ideas.

  2. I loved this Jeff. Beautiful. I copied it to re-inspire myself. Now, I can’t wait to write my own.

  3. Hi Jeff, first thank you for the book. Second, I am so glad that you remind us of returning first to love of Writing because we are writers.I am admit some preconceived ideas from over the years of well meaning people giving advice and sharing the rules of writing. Third thing is I have followed every step I can so far of the free stuff you have to offer to this point, and everything I followed, has brought me a result. As soon as I can I will try one of your classes. Youre the honest guy and thank you for that, integrity means everything!
