Writing Through The Hard Stuff

The most profoundly beautiful stories are often born from the most difficult spaces.

Is grief or trauma holding you back from writing your story?

Don’t worry – there are proven and safe techniques and exercises that can help you navigate the most tender spaces.

  • Do you have a story that lives in your body, waiting to be told?
  • Do you long to tell your story, but worry that you may trigger past trauma?
  • Do you hesitate to know where to begin, but know that you must?
  • Do you worry about the impact that writing your story may have on your loved ones, or on yourself?
  • Do you long to turn your traumatic experiences into a book but feel intimidated by the process?
With Jeanette LeBlanc + Rachael Maddox

In my writing workshops, fears of triggers from past traumas often keep people from writing the stories they most need to write. And make no mistake, writing them can be a source of profound healing.

I believe strongly that it is important to gather the best tools and experts to support you on your writing journey, so I created a special 10 part program with my friend and trusted guide – Trauma Resolution Educator, and author of the book Secret Bad Girl, Rachael Maddox.

The Writing Through The Hard Stuff program will provide you with some simple and yet profound tools to take with you on your writing journey. Incorporate the wisdom, tools and exercises into your practice in order to be ready to safely and effectively tell your story, on your terms.



Your Writing Through The Hard Stuff Program includes:

  • 10 part course with videos, guidebooks and 23 in-depth exercises delivered in individual lessons
  • The complete 75 minute video course if you prefer to watch in one sitting
  • Audio file of the entire video – so you can listen while on the go
  • Complete PDF Magazine video guide, with full transcription of the video
  • Complete PDF Workbook with each of the questions and exercises developed from the interview, designed to help you create rituals, practices and support for your writing journey

“Writing Through The Hard Stuff was incredibly useful to me for helping work through trauma in a healthy way, and it will be incredibly helpful to anyone who has gone through trauma of any sort and wishes to use writing as a tool for helping work through their trauma. She has this calming way of talking that lets you know she knows what she is talking about, and Jeanette asks the best questions, ones you may not even know you have. I recommend watching or listening to the videos while curled up under comforting layers with your favorite courage-inducing beverage in hand.”

Jeanette LeBlanc

Writer, Muse,

I’m the founder of the Wild Heart Writers, writing workshop facilitator and intuitive marketing guide. I work with fellow wild hearted souls to unleash their words and transform their story into content that creates change – in their lives, in their business, in the world.

My zone of genius is in my ability to see YOUR story and to guide you in transformation. I’ve been called ‘the writer’s muse’. No matter what you say, I don’t believe you’re not a writer. It’s just that you’re not yet writing.

I know how to find the gold hidden inside your words, and shine that mirror back on you until your own vital creativity is made real to you. I know that your stories are vitally important, and that the world is waiting for you to tell them.
