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.


What now?

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.


In Vancouver, Canada, at conferences and events, but mostly 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 in right here.
