Coaching, mentoring and training to writers and other creatives from all walks of life. Newbies, seasoned pros, everything in between before and after, all are welcome in the Society.
What We Do
The Society of Ink Slingers is both a community and a service. It was founded by Lauren McMenemy - a veteran writer in the fields of media, agencies and in-house marketing & communications - to help nurture other writers and set them on the path to success.
Once it's fully operational, the Society will offer a range of support services in both a hands-on way and as a cheerleader on the sidelines.
🟥 Supporting journalists to understand the world of content marketing.
🟥 Mentoring in-house content marketers looking to improve or move up.
🟥 Helping newly-freelance content writers looking for direction.
🟥 Developing in-house content marketing leaders.
🟥 Training small business owners to "do content" to build an audience.
🟥 Supporting writers who are struggling to be themselves or get motivated to follow their passions and dreams.
🟥 Coaching writers to finish that book project and get ready to submit.
