For years, teaching writing and creative self-expression revolved around my now-defunct online writers’ group, The Literati Writers. After working closely with over 300 writers from a dozen countries, I decided to shutter the group at the end of 2016 to systematize those teachings into a writing course, while taking my mission on the road and around the world.
And yet, even after my writers’ group had closed, my heart still yearned for the intimacy and rapport of working with individual clients — brilliant souls all, many of whom have become friends in the years since our first work together.
And so Writer’s Group of Two℠ was born.
Writer’s Group of Two℠ offers you a 4- or 6-month, one-on-one creative partnership with me, Dave Ursillo.
Every week, for the duration of your choosing, you and I unite in a personal writers’ group environment for custom-catered teachings, support, accountability, personalized writing prompts and reading/reviewing your words as you write them.
Writer’s Group of Two℠ synthesizes the magic of a large online writers’ group down to its most potent, inspiring and sustainable elements: personal support, creative partnership, ongoing accountability, and hands-on help in a long-term container of complete non-judgment.
Intersecting the intimacy of one-on-one conversation with deep seen-ness and heart-centered creative advice, hundreds of previous clients experienced the power of words flowing more effortlessly than when trying to battle through all on their own. I’m so proud of my clients and the thousands of pages that have poured from their pens (and keyboards!) over the last five years.
Today, I’m honored to be inviting you into one of these creative relationships with me.
I’m here to help you transform your writing.
In turn, you will begin to self-actualize even further upon your unique path — through the art of writing.
Make Your Writing Unavoidable – In This 1:1 Creative Container
How does Writer’s Group of Two℠ work?
Limited to only a handful of clients at any given time, Writer’s Group of Two℠ is a dynamic and bespoke writer-coach relationship that bridges the ongoing support and accountability of a large writers’ group with the energetic intimacy and invaluable personal guidance of a 12-time author, yogi and writing teacher, Dave Ursillo (that’s me!).
For a period of either 4 months or 6 months, we will come together every week to launch deeper into your writing journey — and take the necessary steps to establish a healthful and honoring writing foundation within you — while improving your writing skills and tactical know-how.
As a Writer’s Group of Two℠ client, you will:
- Engage in an unprecedented 1:1 writers’ group experience!
- Receive one (1) introductory personal writing prompt set upon acceptance
- Enjoy one (1) weekly scheduled check-in and accountability call for ongoing dialogue and support
- Receive one (1) bespoke writing prompt or creative assignment per week, as needed
- Submit up to 5 pages (2,250 words) of your writing per week for Dave’s reading, reviewing and content editing
- Receive unlimited, prioritized personal support and Q+A with Dave via email
- Have all your sessions recorded and archived for downloading and future re-listening at any time
The cornerstone of our relationship is crafted through our weekly 30-minute phone calls together. But better yet, every month you can submit up to 20 pages (or 9,000 words) of writing — typed or hand-written — which I will read, review, and reflect back to you the most important aspects of voice, arc, flow, and how your writing is informing your ongoing experience — as a writer, and as a soul.
Through potent weekly phone calls and an active submission-and-review of your writing every month, we conscientiously breathe momentum, rapport and expansive energy into your writing.
Imagine Penning Up to 120 Pages of Writing in the Next Half Year
That’s 50,000 words of writing, all expressed in your authentic voice.
Imagine writing them even more fluidly, with greater self-support, and more holistically than perhaps ever before.
Imagine starting the book, re-starting the blog, kicking off a half-year’s worth of newsletters or original content… all informed authentically and organically by your life experiences, professional prowess, and beyond.
Let’s conscientiously align a sustainable writing practice with this system of support that I call Writer’s Group of Two℠.
Together, I will help you find your own unique writing practice to support your life off the page, empower your self-knowledge, and create fluid rapport toward what you desire the most in your life right now.
It’s not magic. It’s not a “system” or “process” that gets carbon-copied and regurgitated for all my clients, over and over again. It’s what happens when you find the support, guidance, understanding and writing teachings that unlock where you’re stuck.
It’s called Writer’s Group of Two℠.

“My identity as a writer has shifted dramatically. Dave made me into a published author. Seeing my name in a printed book was like I was finally declaring my truth to the world.

I’m more confident than ever that I’m on the right path.”Milo McLaughlin, Former Writers’ Group Member and Content Writer (Edinburgh, OR)

“Dave was in my dream a few days ago: he was at the front of a classroom and encouraging me to ‘Write, write, write,’ asking me why I wasn’t writing, why I was holding back. My subconscious associates Dave as a natural writing mentor, and the leadership he gives to his writing clients proves it.”Beatriz Alemar, Coach and Consultant, (Philadelphia, PA)
“A bit more than a month ago, I had a chat with Dave about a struggle I was having around self-editing while I was trying to write.

“With a steadfast compassion, patience, and wisdom far beyond his years, Dave holds space for the possibilities of your writing, and your life, to emerge in ways you anticipated — and those you could not expect.

Thank you for that!”Megan Atkinson, Former Writers’ Group Member and Product Designer (Lansing, MI)
