The Vision

The vision is to create a supportive community for writers to write and network. I’m passionate about assisting writers to hone their skills and publish their stories. My intent is to help writers to get their heart-centered messages in front of their audience.


What is a Writers Circle?

The writers circle is a group of like-minded writers seeking support and to offer encouragement with the intent to improve their craft.

Your Story Matters

We cannot say it enough—your story matters. Self-doubt and imposter syndrome plague many creative souls and keep us (and our stories) hidden from sight.

What could you accomplish if you embraced, without a shadow of a doubt, that your story matters?

Your Words Have Power

The thoughts we maintain and the words we use to express ourselves possess energy. The words we use in everyday conversations reflect the level of harmony we are experiencing and influence our sense of wellbeing.

What do you tell yourself when you sit down to write? Are you kind or cruel?

When share with someone that you are a writer, how do you feel?

Consider the energy and tone used to relay your voice.


Writing is a solitary action. We sit for long periods of time alone and dictate the story as it comes to us.

The Pen to Paper Writers Circle™ brings writers together to communicate, learn, and share our wisdom.

Pen to Paper Writers Circle

Creating a community for writers.

I am a writer; it’s what I do.

The role I find myself in time-after-time is that of a guide or wayshower. I’m not here to teach you anything; you already know your answers. I guide creative souls like yourself to express the voice that would rather not be heard.

As the publisher of Elements For A Healthier Life Magazine, I found myself guiding contributing writers to trust their intuition and write content from their heart. The Integrative Nutrition Health Coach education I received became the foundation of Elements For A Healthier Life. It was a platform for coaches and community leaders to share pearls of wisdom and professional insights.

Over time, the virtual assistant services I offer naturally expanded to include story development, proofreading, and editing client’s written projects. This led me to offer group coaching sessions and creating handouts for writers to expand their creativity.

Soon after, the Pen to Paper Press™ Podcast followed. The first episode broadcast on February 3, 2021, with Barb Parcells as my first guest. The conversations centered on writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. We explore insights ranging from overcoming writer’s block to self-editing to getting books into the hands of readers.

How do you want you, and your story, to be seen? It’s not about you being seen, but how your art is accessible to others. Your story matters. Your words have power. It’s time, creative one, to vocalize what you have hesitated to share with the world.

All the best,
Cindy Kochis
