NOURISHING YOU AS A WRITER AND A HUMAN.

If you want to live in a world where kindness and joy matter and writers are supported, you’ve found it. Welcome home.

About us

Rewriting the world

The Writers Happiness Movement is based on two unwavering beliefs:

1) Kindness and joy matter.

2) The written word is one of the most powerful ways to promote courage, empathy, and ferocity of the heart.

The goal of the movement is to create more happiness for every writer while making the world a better place for all writers, with a long-term vision of creating large-scale programs such as grants, residencies, and retirement homes for writers — all funded by an alternative economic structure rooted in kindness and inclusion. Everything we offer is here to help you access more joy, more writing time, and more spaciousness for and around your writing and life.

This is meant to be both a revolution and a refuge. There’s nothing you have to do here other than be who you are and write what you write. Whether you’ve been writing for decades, are just starting to think you might like to write, or are somewhere in between, the Writers Happiness Movement is here to remind you how important what you do actually is.

Breathe. Write. Love. We’ve got your back.

There are two parts to the Writers Happiness Movement:

Part One:

Happiness For You

In which you receive an ongoing supply of free happiness tools created specifically for writers, all designed to help you access more happiness, and therefore more psychic space to write (and live).

 

 

Part two:

Happiness For All 

In which the Writers Happiness Movement supports writers with programs such as grants, residencies, and so forth, all of which are sustained through a cooperative, community-based structure that reflects a world where writing, kindness, and joy matter.

Never forget that writing is your contribution to the world, and that it is enough.

About

The Writers Happiness Movement grew from wanting to live in a world where happiness, kindness, and the arts matter more than money. So we’re building it.
