Flow for Writers

Flow for Writers is Steven’s most intimate live event. It’s a two-day intensive with a small curated group, where he shares everything he knows about wordsmithing, flow hacking and creativity turbo-boosting. Its a practical, experimental and experiential deep dive into all the high performance meta-skills that surround the craft of writing–the very tools and techniques that helped Steven write eight bestsellers, earn two Pulitzer prize nominations and consistently double the size of his book advances every time he sold a book. What do attendees gain? A far more satisfying, meaningful and profitable writer’s life.

Flow for Creatives

If creativity is already core to your life, then this program is perfect for you. This could mean you’re a copywriter, a scientist hunting a breakthrough, a coder designing software, an entrepreneur dreaming up your next start-up, a writer aching to finish that novel, or a landscape painter trapped in the life of an accountant—all that matters is that generating novel ideas (and putting those ideas out in the world in some form or another) is core to your life and purpose. In this 32 lesson masterclass Steven gives you everything you need to know (from the science of creativity to the maps, models & virus scans the best creatives use) to amplify your creative output and finally achieve your boldest goals.
