Why subscribe?

The Clothesline is a cozy spot for writers who love to plan, travel, and read. Think of it as a virtual backyard, a place where we can all get together to air our thoughts, stop to smell the roses, and hash out ideas around the fire. Brought to you by Vanessa Chiasson, who has been writing, blogging, and helping writers with their business planning since 2012.

Pro subscribers enjoy extended content, discounts on workshops and webinars, and a free monthly Pitching Power Hour (a Zoom-based accountability session to get those tricky story pitches DONE.)

(BTW… You can see what else Vanessa has going on here.)
