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 an online 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.


In Vancouver, Canada, at conferences and events, and online. For over a decade's worth of thoughts and projects and writing about all manner of things, start with my blog. Subscribe to my weekly newsletter to really get a feel for my work. And join our community right here.

Every Friday, get honest talk about fitting creativity into daily life, along with announcements, tips, and links to things you’ll enjoy knowing about. Someone once told me she looks forward to it every week!
