The Science & Art of Writing is a community of creatives founded by award winning writer and yogi Jessica Hinds. We are the only approach to the art, craft, and business of writing that brings together research from neuroscience, Jungian psychology, cognitive behavioral training, evolutionary biology, meditation, stoic philosophy, neuro linguistic programming, and behavioral economics.

There are three ways to join our family.

A La Cart Writers
A la cart writers may come and go, taking part in our short form programs and classes. This is a vast and wide range of all kinds of writers in all genres at all stages of their careers or hobbies of writing. Everyone is welcome.

Core Writers
Core writers are selected from our a la cart writers. Core writers have strong unique voices that Jess feels are important voices to foster, develop, and promote. Core writers are those who are willing to commit to their development as an artist and an activist, creating art that helps to shape the conscious and unconscious belief systems of our country.

Core writers are dedicated to long term programs, meeting one to four times a month for a minimum of one year. Core writers steep discount off a la cart classes including the international writing retreats in Portugal and the Dominican Republic.

Amplified Writers
After taking care of the a la cart and core writers resources go to bringing FREE classes and workshops to those voices who need amplification, the voices of women who are living in shelters, men and women in prison, and the children attending schools who have cut arts programming.

What a remarkable instructor/mentor/coach/cheerleader is Jessica Hinds. Her passion for writing and the enthusiasm she brings to her class is infectious. I am new to screenwriting but have written extensively in other genres, (primarily plays). This class has saved me many hours (and dollars) learning about how to go about this form of creative writing. More importantly, she imparts an irresistible desire to write, I've churned out more pages this month than in the previous year. Thank you Jess, I look forward to taking another class from you soon.

It was cancelled. The first class was fine but in the second recording, it didn't really feel like the information progressed. The last two classes (half of the course) were cancelled so I’m inclined to ask for a refund. I honestly didn’t receive an opportunity to further my writing or learn the advertised technique. What I did take away from the class is that’s its really led to help fiction writers and I didn’t think that was clearly expressed in the description. But people may want to know that before signing up if they are working in another direction. Overall, just disappointed the whole thing slipped through the cracks.
