Kim Werker. I’m a writer, editor, instructor and serial crafts dabbler. I write books, help other writers write with purpose and clarity, facilitate an online community of creative adventurers, and do a project called Mighty Ugly.

Mighty Ugly. It’s a creativity exercise, a workshop, sometimes a keynote address, and a book. Also, I facilitate an inclusive, supportive community of people from around the world who are into exploring their creativity and prioritizing it in their daily lives.
