Does this sound like you?

You know that the website you cobbled together does not look like you want it to look.

You have no idea how to make your site look good. (Or functional.)

You are overwhelmed about organizing your writing to showcase your best words online.

You find website tech scary as heck.

You dread the hard slog you know it will take to present the image you want on your website.

You feel stuck with a clunky website when you want one that looks professional.

The Writer Website Love
Workshops Will Help You…


  • Have a unique website of your creation and in a style that fits you—with a home, about, and contact page ready for your ideal visitors.



  • Find your voice online and communicate in the most effective and impactful way with the people you want to find you online.

Hi, Writer, I’m Rachel Thompson.

I’m an author and literary magazine editor here to help you and your writing shine. Like many writers, I have a parallel career—in my case, I have been creating websites for creatives for over a decade.

Combining my online skills with my work with writers at any stage who want to share their work, I am here to help you break through the resistance to promote yourself.

I will help you create and execute your unique vision online. I want to help you stop feeling overwhelmed and stuck and let your brilliant writer website shine.

Testimonials from Writers Who Took Writer Website Love

“Writer Website Love helped me frame my vision of myself and my mission as a writer, which has increased my confidence when I communicate with editors, potential publishers and readers.”

Deborah Elderhorst

“I created a website that I think is a perfect reflection of me as a writer. The course was very introspective and philosophical. Who am I really, at the core, as a writer, person?”

Rowan McCandless

“The whole process has made me feel really empowered. I created a beautiful website that perfectly aligns with my goals as a writer. I feel like I now see myself as a serious writer, and I’m ready to start submitting my manuscript.” 

Lindsay Foran

“Before taking Writer Website Love, my website was one fake post that I had put up because I didn’t know what to do, and now it is a customized, individual, completed website. The branding thing surprised me because I was skeptical at first about it. It helped a lot and it made a big difference when I went to build my website.”

Rachel Redern

“This is a great course for getting past tech phobia and understanding the principles behind website branding for creatives. Rachel is a knowledgeable, generous, and endlessly patient guide who understands the need to mesh image and voice with functionality.”

Workshop Details

Who is Writer Website Love for?

Writer Website Love is specifically for writers who are ready to find their ideal audience and connect with them. If you’re thisclose to being ready for this, the workshops and our warm community of writers will get you there. It’s for writers who feel that the website they cobbled together does not represent them (yet). It’s for writers who are overwhelmed about organizing their writing to showcase their best words online. And it’s for writers who find website tech scary as heck.

A warm community of writers, no need to travel…

Writer Website Love is online and accessible from anywhere with an internet connection—and even then, the workshops can either be streamed or downloaded and watched from your cabin in the woods. A warm community of writers from all over the world is available anytime to talk about your writing and marketing yourself as a writer.

At your own pace…

Though the live components of the course are held at specific times, you can do the lessons entirely at your own pace, and you will have instant, forever access to all the materials and updates. There are no time limits. You can complete your site in as much or as little time as you’d like, and revisit the lessons as often as you want, though most students have a site ready for public viewing by the end of the final week of the workshops.

How long is this program?

Writer Website Love comprises four workshops, with three lessons and worksheets each. Each workshop is one-hour long, and comes with concrete, detailed assignments and examples. Past students have said it takes from 4-6 hours per workshop to complete the assignments, again done at your own pace.
