"The Literati Writers is a 'different' kind of writers' group. There is no competition, pressure or criticism here. Instead, space, encouragement and gentle accountability will help you truly learn how to flourish."

Dave Ursillo, Founder of The Literati Writers
Lifelong Writer, 11-Time Author and Certified Yoga Teacher
Joe Choi

"Dave is hellbent on helping you–no matter what. He takes the time to truly get to know you as a person, which is rare in this day and age of people merely trying to increase list numbers, followers, and likes."

Beatriz Alemar

"Dave was in my dream a few days ago. He was at the front of a classroom and encouraging me to 'write, write, write.' My subconscious associates Dave as a natural writing mentor, and the leadership he gives to The Literati Writers proves it."

Jason Vanfosson

"One of the greatest decisions I've made has been to connect with Dave and he has quickly become a role model in the ways that he lives a life of self-reliance, authenticity, honesty, and openness."

Sarah Nicotra

"There stands Dave Ursillo, a different kind of leader: a humble, genuine and generous one. He consistently engages with his community in a way that boggles my mind."

"Being a part of The Literati Writers has been life-altering for me. There is resounding forward motion in my life as a creative. My writing is POURING out these days. You rock, Dave. I'm really glad to be a part of what you're doing in the world."

Tracye Dukes

"Simply being around The Literati Writers has given me more than anything else in the past eight months. I'm finally on the right track. Thank you for bringing awesome people together and creating such a supportive community."

Amy Ouellette

"During my time in The Literati Writers, my identity as a writer has shifted dramatically. I'm now earning enough money from writing to pay my mortgage and bills, and I'm more confident than ever that I'm on the right path."

Milo McLaughlin

"Having The Literati Writers to publicly make a commitment is so helpful in getting me to my desk and holding myself accountable to the goals I set for myself. So, thank you. I really appreciate it."

Tom Meitner

"I am enjoying my experience in The Literati Writers tremendously. I love being around people who walk their talk. Every single person in this group inspires me to be better. Thank you!"

Why it works.







Your personal values, guiding beliefs and soul-deep outlook shape what you consider to be creatively fulfilling or a waste of time.

What is voice, and how do you tap it? After uncovering your values, you'll write in a voice that speaks through your values.

We all have a different relationship to "writing" and the title "writer." As a Literati Writer, you'll start to retell your writing story.



Founder Dave Ursillo provides invaluable feedback, support and insights that are known for transforming your experience into a meaningful creative journey.



Head into our private members forum for gentle accountability, honest questions, priceless feedback and more. The group energy ignites, and you're fueled by it.



With bonus hours of author interviews in our new writing courses, you'll grab a dose of inspiration to write more whenever you need it.
