Kim Werker. I’m like a camp counsellor for grownups, helping people have (more) fun making stuff. I’m a writer, editor, instructor and serial dabbler, and I make something – even something teeny tiny – every day. I write books, and I do a project called Mighty Ugly, helping people and groups confront their creative demons so, you guessed it, they can have fun making stuff.

What now?

Like summer camp, except mostly online, and for adults not kids. I nudge and encourage people to explore their creativity and to have fun doing it. Oh, and Mighty Ugly. It’s a creativity exercise, a workshop, and also a book.


In Vancouver, Canada. But mostly on the internet. Specifically: For a decade’s worth of thoughts and projects and writing about all manner of things, start with my blog. Instagram is totally my jam, and so is YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Here are the classes I teach online, and these are the books I’ve written.
