…to get you to the next level in your writing journey. Rachel takes out the fluff and provides the fundamentals, bringing her knowledge as a best-selling and award-winning author. No matter where you are in your writing journey, there’s an Inspired Writers membership track just for you!

Wannabe Writer

You love to write but have a hard time calling yourself a writer. You’re unsure about where to start when it comes to blogging or finding your writing voice. You’d love to explore this idea further but need the confidence of a coach or mentor to help you take that next step. The Wannabe Writer track will help you believe in your writing passion, start that blog, and give you the necessary tools to become a true writer.

Aspiring Author

This is for the writer who isn’t sure where to start but has a book on their heart to write. All the information out there on how to become an author feels overwhelming and daunting. The Aspiring Authors track gives you what is essential to achieve your goals and dreams of getting that book (or multiple books) published. Rachel teaches how to get started as a serious writer while growing your writing platform in a way that honors God and is authentic to you. From self-publishing vs. traditional publishing insights, website building, book proposal formatting, spiritual + personal growth tools, you will gain clarity and confidence on your writing journey. 

Career Creator

You’ve published a book (or two or three!) but you’re still struggling to make a living off this writing dream. Or perhaps you’re nearly there getting a book published, but you need additional help and could use more insight into the book proposal process. You’d love to learn how to diversify your income with one or more of the following additional income streams: speaking, coaching, podcasting, creating online tools to sell, course creation, affiliate sales, and freelance work. Rachel knows how to help you make a living doing what you love and she will walk you through the steps to help you figure out the BEST fit for YOU when it comes to expanding your career.

 About Your Coach!

Not sure about me yet? I totally get it! 

In a nutshell, I “officially” started my writing career in 2015 and launched a best-selling book in 2017. Since then I’ve won multiple writing awards, published books successfully in multiple genres (both traditionally and self-published), successfully coached multiple aspiring author clients, and in 2018, I added the title of “secret recruiting agent” to my name (you can figure that one out). I now connect with over 100,000 people through my online platforms and am ready to teach others everything I’ve learned in this journey to become published and make a full-time career as an author.  

I started doing all of this while taming “Wannabe Triplets” when they were still in diapers. Did I mention I still worked part-time as a dental hygienist, too?

I’m not exactly what you call a Christian...can I still join?

Absolutely! Just know that there are many teachings and trainings where I reference back to God, Jesus, and the Bible often.

Do you provide a self-paced course for help with book proposals instead of joining this membership program?

Yes! Check out my Write it Right: Book Proposals and Query Letters self-paced online course: https://rachelcswanson.com/write-it-right


Rachel has been one of the biggest blessings in my life in 2018. I started my proposal writing journey 6 months prior. I learned all the basics in a group program, but really needed some 1:1 eyes on my work. I felt pretty overwhelmed and Rachel quickly jumped in and simplified it all for me. Not only was she an excellent teacher and encourager, but she also was extremely hands on and willing to help me restructure it in a way that finally got clear. My first proposal had been declined by 3 agents, but this new one brought multiple offers for representation and now two handsome book contracts! Rachel truly is gifted at this work and I highly recommend her!!

Kate Crocco

Confidence and Mindset Coach

This program led to a lot of heart change that will benefit every aspect of my life in addition to getting the resources needed to write my book proposal! Thank you!

- Rosemary P.

This course has been amazing. I feel better equipped to follow my dreams of being an author than I ever could have imagined. I truly feel like Rachel not only provided us with plenty of information and support, but was also present. She responded quickly to questions and participated in group discussions. It did not feel like she was coaching from afar or from a place of hierarchy. She was open and honest with struggles she faced with writing and being an author. She was very transparent and made the course very applicable to everyone.

- Sarah Lynn Winters

I sense God placing on my heart to share my story and write, but I felt a little lost in the process. Rachel came beside me and helped me through, giving me the tools and knowledge I needed to make the process run smoothly.

- Kristi M.

Rachel’s Author Refine program gave me the tools I needed to begin my journey as an author.  It changed the way I approach each day and gave me hope that I really could be an author!! Thank you Rachel!!

Sandra Rae

Author and Storyteller

I didn’t know what to expect going into this program, however, what I received coming out of it far exceeded my wildest dreams! Not only did I become more confident as a writer with a complete road map and resources at my disposal, my relationship with God transformed right in front of my eyes! If you are at all considering leaping in with Rachel, my advice to you is to dive in all the way and right away!

- Erica Hedtke Baretto

I loved being able to go back and listen to the coaching calls. I absolutely LOVED the materials and the tools that we had access to. Rachel did an amazing job of transmitting resources to us and bringing in the guest speakers.

- Simply Mel

Rachel’s support encouraged me to believe in myself as a writer and the message God is asking me to share. Aspiring authors will find an encouraging coach who equips them to confidently pursue their dream of writing.

- Kelly Shank

The quick version is that she’s great! She takes her programs seriously and is a wealth of experience, particularly in the book proposal arena. She’s transparent and authentic about her own author joys and challenges, and you really feel like she’s in it with you. 

Amy Hurst

Life Coming Alive Community

Rachel was really helpful, we had no idea what to do and what the book industry was like. Her videos are very informative and now we are more confident in the steps we need to take to getting our book out there. She was always easy to reach when we needed her and her motivational talks helped us focus on our goals.

Emily and Justin Davis

Author and Storyteller

Rachel came into my life at just the right time. I knew a book was on my radar, but felt lost when it came to compiling a proposal and pitching it to literary agencies. With Rachel’s guidance and support, I was able to create and refine my book proposal in three months, and land an agent by the 6 month mark. I attribute every bit of my success to working with her and her coaching has been valuable beyond words. I cannot recommend working with Rachel highly enough.

Kelsey Chapman

Podcaster and Media Manager

Rachel gave us a lot of tools and a good foundation for publishing a book which I really appreciated.  She was warm, personable and encouraging. She has a heart to really help others achieve their dreams.

- Annie Johnson

I entered this program unsure of even what book to pursue first and I’m leaving with a finished manuscript and a self publishing plan. Well worth the small investment!

- Melissa Smallwood

The work I put in months ago is paying off now. I can see things starting to fall into place!
