If something has been telling you to find your voice, perhaps it's time to listen.

This course isn't (just) about writing, and it isn't (just) for writers.

It's about the fundamental life skill of finding your voice, turning your stories into wisdom for yourself and helpfulness for others, and in so doing transforming your life.

It's in community, it's online, you can do it from anywhere, it's hard, and it's fun. It takes a little leap:

What is Elephant Academy's Find your Voice course?

Find your Voice is a 6-week, live course with Mentorship, community, and expert guidance from Elephant Journal's Editor-in-Chief, Waylon Lewis, and our team of Editors.

This course isn't (just) about writing, and it isn't (just) for writers. It's about the fundamental life skill of finding your own voice, owning the power of that voice, and using it for good.

You’re here to find your heart, share it, and in so doing relieve yourself of your lifelong burdens and inspire others to do the same. And we'll do that together, through writing.

Who is this course for?

Do you have a heart? Do you have a voice? Do you have experiences?

Then this course is for you.

I’m Waylon Lewis.

I'm the founder of Elephant Journal and author of “Things I would like to do with You” & now “It’s Never too Late to Fall in Love with your Life.”

I just published my second book. It’s #3 bestseller at Boulder Book Store, and just getting started.

My first book, “Things I would like to do with you,” about the Buddhist view of relationships and love, has sold 27,000+ copies.

Next up: I'm working on a children’s book.
