The Lucinda Literary Gold Membership

Get Your Proposal Done in 90 Days

Book publishing is a long and arduous process for writers—we’re here to make it easier, and fun.

Our Gold members enjoy coaching from Lucinda Halpern, president of Lucinda Literary, every 3 weeks, allowing you time to revise and receive adequate review from Lucinda while keeping a strong cadence. At the end of 6 sessions, and Lucinda’s query review, our goal is to have you set and prepped to get your book to market. You can always renew should you need more time.

We only allow 6 writers into each group, by application only, to make sure you’re a fit for Lucinda’s expertise and the other writers in the group. As a small group, writers benefit from a ton of personal attention and ongoing support. Our application list is always long, and we only have limited places available.

What Writers are Saying

“[Lucinda’s program is] packed with valuable information, insider insights, and actionable tips. Most importantly, it delivered on its promise—I did indeed get signed with an agent and landed a book deal with a major publishing house! I definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to successfully navigate the publishing process. Lucinda is the best.”
—Dr. Mary Anderson

“Lucinda’s courses are an invaluable resource for authors facing the daunting task of getting their book to market. [Her programs] were well-organized, crammed with important information and absolutely worth the fee. Lucinda Halpern is highly experienced, giving and perceptive — in short, she’s the real deal!”
—Peter Melnick

“Lucinda’s prowess? She is able to guide a creative person’s mind–which fires in a million divergent directions–towards a single, poignant, powerful idea…and then helps refine the idea to ensure it resonates with readers. Masterful!”
—Serena Quaglia BFA MA

Get Signed was everything I hoped it would be. Having already written a book, I was trying to understand the ins and outs of publishing and get guidance regarding my next steps. Not only did Lucinda’s warm, inviting energy quickly create a sense of community, but she gave me all the clarity I needed. She answered any questions, grounded me, inspired me, and set me straight on my road to getting signed.
Troy Hadeed

The clear guidance to find my writing community led me to Lucinda and this group… It’s a vulnerability I’ve never known and I WANT MORE. From the first session, it’s been so easy to share things that I’ve only shared with those closest to me. I believe it’s the freedom that’s necessary in the transformation of my little story into a big idea. You’ve ignited breakthrough after breakthrough and I have nothing but gratitude.
Colleen Ryan-Hensley

Stop Dreaming, Start Achieving

You find the time to write each day—because you have a literary agent who believes in you.

You’ve sold your book. You receive an advance you never dreamed was possible.

Your editor is the smartest visionary in the world. You have your own publicist.

Your book—that’s your name on the jacket!—is out on bookshelves.

This can seem unimaginable to so many writers who have submitted their work to agents and not received a positive response, or any response at all. After all of your hard work and passion, the pain of rejection and the mystery around what really breaks through can be extremely hard to bear.

But in my years running Lucinda Literary, I have seen all of these dreams come true. I’ve seen you—where you are now, and where you’re going. And my burning desire to meet you where you are and help you get your book idea out there is why I’ve developed the Membership program. This comprehensive toolkit and coaching for writers, curated by industry experts, will keep you educated, inspired, and on track to meet your publishing goals. If you’re already familiar with our signature course Get Signed, consider this the Get Signed Accelerator.

If you’ve always dreamed about publishing a book, don’t wait another minute to grab these expert resources that aren’t available anywhere else.
