What It Is
Writer’s Group of Two℠ synthesizes the magic of a large writers’ group down to its most potent, motivating, and outcome-producing elements: deep personal support, genuine creative partnership, ongoing accountability, and hands-on writing help in a long-term container guided by clarity-seeking, fun, and complete non-judgment.
At its core, Writer’s Group of Two℠ is precisely that: a private writer’s group that functions like any other, except with two participants:
You and your guide, Dave Ursillo, the creator of Unavoidable Writing.
- Are you a writer-at-heart who has felt creatively stifled lately?
- Do you write for work, but dream of having a personal practice to call “your own”?
- Are you called to put messages of light, love and encouragement out into a world that desperately needs them?
If so, Writer’s Group of Two℠ may be for you.
Intersecting the personal attention of one-on-one coaching with the unparalleled seenness and creative support you’ve come to expect from him, Dave steps into the role of all-in-one cheerleader, friend
Demystify your creative goals alongside a professional writer whose work has spanned a decade of platform building, blogging, self-publishing, copywriting, business storytelling, consulting, and teaching workshops, seminars, speaking gigs and retreats on 4 continents for over 4,000 students and clients.
“My coaching sessions with Dave created a profound shift in my relationship to writing and the role that it plays in my life. Originally, I thought I was seeking someone who would “kick my ass” and get me to write more often. I came away from our coaching realizing that I don’t need to pursue writing out of the fear that I wouldn’t amount to something if I don’t end up becoming a prolific author. Without the unnecessary suffering that writing can carry with it, I can now enjoy it as a form of self-expression that creates more ease in my life.” — Rolando Peraza, Freelance Writer

How It Works
#1) Apply for Your Writer’s Group of Two℠. Limited to just a handful of active clients per session, this bespoke and personalized coaching service is as much about witnessing who you are “off the page” and supporting your life beyond writing as it is about accessing your fullest creative potential.
#2) Set a No-Pressure, Non-Salesy Exploratory Call. You don’t see a check-out link below. That’s because, with such a meaningful investment at stake, your potential writing coach and guide, Dave Ursillo, has your best interests at heart. After submitting your application, you’ll have a voice-to-voice meet and greet (30 to 60 minutes) and dialogue on goals, what’s up in your life right now, and what you’d like to achieve in your creative partnership.
#3) Set Tentative Coaching Call Schedule. Flexible scheduling for the win! Choose between 30-minute calls every week, or lump your half hour sessions into 1-hour coaching calls, every other week. Whether you desire consistent accountability for maximum momentum, or a more thoughtful and reflective pace, you receive the same quantity and quality of support over your Writer’s Group of Two℠.
#4) Pre-Work: Submit Intake Survey + Writing Sample for Voice-Values Analysis. A pre-work survey and recent writing sample kick off your accountability to your goals. Your first session includes a detailed explanation of your top voice values: the natural energies and core feeling states that comprise your authentic writing voice. Get ready to pull back the veil on the voice you’ve been longing truly to understand for years.
#5) Coaching Sessions Begin. Your weekly (or every-other-weekly) coaching rhythm begins! In each session, you’ll uncover stories, decode struggles, and demystify your writing desires. All you need to bring to the table in your Writer’s Group of Two℠ are an open mind, honesty, and curiosity. By understanding your common hang-ups, and exploring your earnest wants from your writing practice, you’ll discover a genuinely fun and indisputably rewarding pathway for accomplishing your creative goals.
#7) Write, Reflect, Repeat. Week-to-Week. Now it’s time to get some real significant writing done. Every week, you submit up to 4.5 pages (or 1,250 words) of content for Dave to peer review and strategically edit. All the while, you’ll be embodying the very qualities and conditions that suit your best personal writing practice. Expect to improve your writing environment, practice efficiency, voice development, style and genre needs, and the underlying influences that support a lifelong relationship to the written word.
