Flight School with Jennifer Lauck is a safe place for passionate and devoted writers of all levels to discuss, create, and think about the promises and perils of creative writing.

I aim to write honest, soul-searching, and often surprisingly intimate posts from my retreat in a remote fishing village where I am immersed in nature, grow my own food, purify my own water, make my own bread, all while asking big questions about life, God, and purpose. I post once a week circulating around exclusive Writing Lab posts and prompts, Open Mic 🎤 posts to create community sharing, and Behind the Scenes into my own process and life.

I created Flight School because I know first hand that writing is lonely business, especially when composing our fiction and creative non-fiction in search of human truth. Non-writers often cannot understand what we’re trying to do with words and most want us to finish up and get published. We need a community we can lean into. We need fellows we can trust.

For free, you’ll receive:

  • The Open Mic 🎤posts inviting the community to share, like this one on writer’s block, real or imagined? See the comments on this post on 9-11 to see the “open mic” at work.

  • Behind the Scenes posts that give an insider view into my own process and life like this one on a stalker on my land that turned into a teaching on the antagonistic force

  • Comments on work you share as part of the Open Mic, which you can see in this post where I talk to a writer about her struggle with anxiety, and this post where I help a writer get out of his head and into his scene.

  • Some access to the archives.

When you become a paid subscriber you also get:

  • Full access to the archives to include in-depth teachings on scene and exposition, video teachings with brave subscribers who share their work like this Zoom teaching on a Canadian writer’s new memoir.

  • Access to the story of my own journey to publication with my first memoir, Blackbird, meeting Oprah, and the inside scoop on the publishing business, then and now.

  • Direct teachings on work shared in the comments.

  • 20% discount on foundation classes, summer retreats, and consults with Jennifer

  • Free entry to live online Zoom meetings and chats.  

  • BONUS: If you become a Founding Member, you get all the same benefits as paid plus a signed copy of any of my four books.
