Your writer’s soul has found its place!

I know what it feels like to have the desire to write but not much else. This is the writer’s membership site I always wanted for training, connections and community but couldn’t find. So I created COMPEL Training just for you. Welcome home.

COMPEL Training is a faith-based online training community created FOR WRITERS who need direction, training and encouragement to keep using the gifts God has given them.

Membership Includes:

Every writer needs support and encouragement … someone to remind you that you’ve got what it takes! That’s why we’ve centered our writers training around community! Join our member-exclusive Facebook community group called The Connection Courtyard, our peer-led critique groups to hone your writing, or our focused-topic Facebook groups where you can connect with others who share your specific writing interests. At COMPEL, there is a place for you.


Whether you’re a beginner or have a few years of experience behind you, at COMPEL, we make it simple and help you identify what you need to take the next best step on your writing journey. As you gain more confidence, we’ve provided a library of training content to explore — full of lessons by Lysa TerKeurst, Proverbs 31 Ministries staff, speakers and writers, as well as experts in the publishing field — and a personalized dashboard to help you keep track of courses you’re enrolled in as well as classes and courses you’ve completed.

You need information about the publishing industry, and we give you the scoop! At COMPEL, we share all of the latest insight into the world of publishing, bringing in top professionals to give invaluable advice and instruction for faith-based writers to take the next step in their publishing journey.

COMPEL Training features new COMPEL Classes every single month in the Connection Courtyard, our member-exclusive private Facebook group. These lessons are always available for replay in the video section of the Connection Courtyard. They are also placed in the COMPEL Course Library.

We have a full library of lessons that members can access at any time, including videos, webinars and audio lessons. These lessons cover all aspects of writing, including blogging, publishing, freelancing, writing basics, how to write a book, proposal writing, writing Bible studies, how to generate writing ideas, marketing, and even how to deal with rejection and stay motivated to pursue your calling to write.

We also have multiple courses about navigating the publishing industry and how to pursue publication of your work. All this is in addition to the fresh weekly resources you’ll receive in the Connection Courtyard.

Yes! In fact, writers at every level will benefit from COMPEL. For beginning writers, or for any new COMPEL member who needs help knowing where to start regardless of experience level, the COMPEL Course Library contains a course called Checklists 101-501, which offers a progressive list of lessons to work through.

Regardless of writing experience and successes, there is always opportunity to improve and grow our craft! The COMPEL Course Library features beginning to advanced lessons with writing tips, as well as lessons on the publishing industry as a whole. In addition, COMPEL offers the priceless opportunity to get connected with a vibrant online community of writers to support and encourage you as you write.

COMPEL members have the ability to cancel their membership at any time. COMPEL operates on a 30-day billing cycle, so if you decide to cancel five days after your monthly billing date, you will still have access for 25 more days. There are no refunds for unused days per COMPEL Training’s no-refund policy, which all members agree to when signing up for COMPEL.

No, unfortunately. We understand stretched budgets, and while we would love to be able to offer scholarships or discounts, we would need money donated in order to do so. Should that time come, we will post this information on our website.
