Waylon Lewis teaches Find your Voice.

Get vulnerable, get brave, get grounded, get open. Let's do it together.

What is Elephant Academy's Find your Voice course?

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

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 inspire others to do the same.

Who is this course for?

Do you have a heart? Do you have a voice? Do you have wisdom to share?

Then this course is for you.

When's the course?

March 10 - April 14th, 2022

Weekly trainings take place on Fridays at 10 a.m. MST, and are available for replay if you can't make it live.

I took the Find Your Voice program mainly because I love Elephant Journal and I wanted to get more involved with the Elephant Community. This program exceeded my expectations. My writing has significantly improved thanks to this course. The messages were simple, clear, and so effective. The classes and meetings were deep and honest as well as fun and fascinating. 

I highly recommend it.

“I've loved every bit of the Academy. I’m the best version of myself because of this course, and I’ve never felt more like me. For someone who's felt lost most of her life, that's huge.”

~ Sharon DeNofa

“Elephant Academy has given me the tools to become a writer with authenticity. I didn't know I needed that going in, but I realize now it was the most significant missing piece to what I needed in writing and living, both.”

~ Greg Simmons

“I had been writing for ages, but the Academy helped me hone my skills and find a balance between writing my heart and writing something that would be of benefit. The publication of my words has opened up unexpected doors in the years since. And the connections I made will be forever. Huge thanks, Waylon, for allowing us into your beautifully crafted world.”

~ Jessica Chardoulias

By the end of your course, you will:

• Develop a consistent writing practice and learn to stop fearing writer's block, imposter syndrome, and vulnerability.

• Use mindfulness tools to develop your writing practice, and your connection with yourself.

• Gain the confidence to share your story with our world—a world that desperately needs truth, genuine communication, and connection.

• Do all of this while experiencing submitting writing to an active publication.

My only regret is that I didn't take this course years ago. If you're looking for a place to begin or improve your writing and evolve into a better human—this is your place. The folks on this journey will welcome you into the fold. The writing lessons in the course are spot on—practical and applicable. The only downside is that it ends.
