What Academy Graduates Say:

"Thanks to the Academy...I am a paid writer."

It changed my life—the way I write, share, communicate and engage with every part of my life. Not to mention writing. And thanks to the Academy, I can now say I'm a paid writer. It's a key part of my vocation. Can I stop gushing? No, not really! I'm forever grateful.

~ Justice Bartlett

"Despite the crazy in our world right now...

this course has been helping me stay sane and connected."

~ Kimberly Gobok

"I had no formal writing experience before joining Elephant Academy."

Not only did I learn how to write to be of benefit of others, but I learned how to connect with myself and write vulnerably—and professionally. If you’re considering the Academy, take a chance—at worst, you’ll learn a hell of a lot from some passionate, brilliant folks. At best, it just might change your life.

~ David Baumrind

What's so unique about Elephant Academy?

At Elephant Academy, we don't teach from dated textbooks or second-hand research. We teach what we do every day.

Plus, you get the signature Elephant touch: everyday, accessible mindfulness woven throughout each lecture, lesson, and video to give you skills, confidence, and self-awareness that go far beyond your writing practice.

What Writing your Heart Out with Elephant Academy looks like:

  • Develop a genuine, cathartic, easy writing practice and learn to stop fearing writer's block, vulnerability, and truth.⁠
  • Use mindfulness tools to develop your connection with yourself, and your ability to be sane in the midst of insanity.⁠
  • Gain the skills to share your story, mindfully, with our world—a world that needs honesty, empathy, genuine craft.
  • Use your voice to make a real difference.⁠ ⁠

"I couldn't put a price tag on the benefits of the course."

I built my confidence, went to an interview for my dream role, and following the completion of the course I won a number of awards at work.
