Kim Werker. I’m a writer, editor, instructor and community builder. I write books about creativity, help other writers write with purpose and clarity, lead creative and professional-development workshops, and host a community of creative adventurers.


What now?

The heart of everything I do resides in Mighty Ugly. It’s a creativity exercise, a professional-development workshop, sometimes a keynote address, and a book. Also, I facilitate an inclusive, supportive community of people who are into exploring their creativity and prioritizing it in their daily lives.
