Some kind words from current and former students:

“Hurley’s workshops provide structure and inspiration to any struggling writer. Every workshop session, I leave feeling fulfilled, inspired, and ready to take on the problems in my writing.” —Kalee

“Throughout my three workshops with Hurley, my work has grown exponentially in complexity and confidence thanks to her extremely helpful and thoughtful feedback.” —Lexi

ABOUT THE NEWSLETTER

In an interview with Vogue, screenwriter Greta Gerwig said, “Writing alone can give you a very deep sense of satisfaction and lonely victory.” I think every writer can relate to that sentiment.

I started this newsletter in May 2020 because I wanted to help writers cultivate sustainable writing practices for themselves. It’s my hope that readers will come away from Lonely Victories with a new zest for their writing lives.

"I especially appreciate Winkler's emphasis on accountability for writers and her ideas for how to create it." —Mason Currey, author of the Daily Rituals series
