“If there is a book that you want to read,

but it hasn’t been written yet,

you must be the one to write it.”

—Toni Morrison

Writing is finding the courage to discover and embrace our truth, and then become the master of that truth.

Laura’s Popular 12-week


Venture into the Hero’s Journey
to create an extraordinary story


Laura Lentz’s popular and intensive 12 week writing WORKshop is now available as 12 self-paced STORYlabs for you to experience first-hand how the Hero’s Quest will make YOUR STORY even more compelling and remarkable.


An internationally respected author, creative coach and writing teacher, Laura Lentz has been teaching themed writing workshops for over ten years for writers, authors and business owners. Her popular twelve-week workshop, STORYquest, Make Your Story a Hero’s Journey was inspired by her ten years of teaching and developmental editing. Through STORYquest, Laura distills the Hero’s Journey to guide us to bring our own transformative stories to life on the page.


Laura is the co-founder of Literati Academy and the STORYquest community. She has worked with countless storytellers and writers. Her 6-week themed online workshops occur throughout the year and are designed to help students create content through inspiration and timed writing prompts, while learning the craft of writing.  Workshops include Sex on the Page, The Geography of You, The Poetry Room and Words in Progress. Online groups include small intimate private online discussions with award winning guest authors, poets and educators.


Laura is on the faculty of the Kauai Writers Conference.  She works in partnership with author & therapist Debbie Augenthaler on the popular workshop Grief Stories, exploring grief through the Hero’s Journey. The classes are online and also available as a master class retreat at the 2019 Kauai Writers Conference.

Holding back the truth as a writer was more painful for me than concern for those I might hurt once I published.
