Welcome To The Challenge!

Professional Premium

The next round of Professional Premium begins on October 1st, 2023, and is  open to everybody, whether you've taken the 60-Day Challenge or not!

Here's how it works:

Professional Premium gives you access to exclusive weekly coaching calls and you're welcome to attend either or both.

Professional Premium runs for THREE MONTHS!  

You get three full months of writers' coaching calls, group critique, and a 1:1 critique from Lauren Loftis on up to 10,000 words of your WIP.

Our previous members of the premium group have absolutely LOVED working with Colleen, our certified professional life coach. 

If you struggle with the motivation to sit down and write, or the idea that you can (and should) prioritize your writing, Colleen is here to help you get out of your own way! 

Those who have already taken Professional Premium can tell you what a great program this has been, and you'll likely see several of them coming back to Colleen's sessions again.

The advice she provides tends to be timeless.

*Colleen's group meetings are happening TWICE a week for the first two months, and only once a week in month three. Wednesdays at 5PM PST (through month 3) and Saturdays at 1 PM PST (through month 2). You can attend BOTH or either, as your schedule allows.* 


Here at Tally Ink, we are big believers in the power of community. We also believe that part of growing as a writer includes practicing your critiquing skills and analyzing the work of others.

Starting in mid-October and going all the way through December, writers will have the option to jump into the critique group with Lauren Loftis, who is hosting calls once a week.

Every Sunday at 11am Pacific time, members of Professional Premium will get the chance to give each other direct feedback from the group as well! The critique portion of Professional Premium will involve editing outside of the call itself, so members will need to dedicate time to read and provide thoughtful feedback.


Q: Do I have to attend every single call? 
A: We ask that you let us know if you are not going to be able to participate in the critique calls ahead of time. It's only fair that if your fellow writers are going to provide you with feedback, you should do your best to reciprocate.

Q: Who can join Professional Premium?
A: Professional Premium is open to anybody who is taking the 60 Day Challenge, or anyone who has written a manuscript, whether on their own or through the 60 Day Challenge.

Q: Which days of the week do the calls take place? 

A: Colleen's group coaching calls take place on Wednesdays at 5PM PT for all 3 months, and Saturdays at 1PM PT for the first 2 months.

Q: How long will my membership last?
Professional Premium begins its three month cycle every quarter, so your purchase of $150
 will last all three months of the program!

Q: Does it matter what genre I write? 
A: We
ask that you keep the work you're sharing relatively appropriate, but all genres are welcome.

Q: When Does Professional Premium Begin?
A: We always host a kickoff call on the first Saturday of the new Premium round to welcome our new members and go over the rules and expectations. Watch your email for an invite to the kickoff call!
