A space for LGBTQ+ people who have a desire to write but need help understanding the complex process of writing and publishing a nonfiction book.

This free workshop is for LGBTQ+ people who have a story to tell (and maybe have even started writing it) but don’t know their best next steps to synthesize and share the story in a publishable way. 

Our intent is to hold and share space with queer writers in the early stages of their book writing journey.







Suzette Mullen

Suzette Mullen is an author, retreat leader, and certified book coach who helps LGBTQ+ nonfiction writers start and finish books they will be proud to share with the world.
From a young age, Suzette has been passionate about standing up for what she believes is right. In 2019, she brought her passion for justice to her new hometown of Lancaster PA when she co-founded The Lancaster LGBTQ+ Coalition.
And all along, she's loved playing with words. Her college besties dubbed her God’s Editor, since she couldn’t help seeing typos everywhere—and pointing them out. She served as an editor at The Harvard Women’s Law Journal and taught legal writing at Harvard Law School. More recently she upleveled her book coaching expertise by becoming certified with Author Accelerator, the country's premier book coaching certification program and community.


Today she is committed to helping LGBTQ+ people write stories that will lift up readers who feel alone, hopeless, powerless, or “othered. Not too long ago, she was one of those readers when faced with the biggest crisis of her life—coming to terms with her sexuality and trying to decide what to do about her marriage. Suzette's mission is to use her gifts and passion for justice to help birth LGTBQ+ stories that bring light and hope to those in darkness. And maybe, just maybe, change hearts and minds, one story at a time, in the process.


Suzette is a graduate of Harvard Law School and Wellesley College, and also holds a certificate in spiritual formation from Columbia Theological Seminary. The proud mom of two adult sons, she is loving this chapter of life with her wife Wendy and their rescue pup Lucy—and is forever grateful the universe nudged her to take a detour five years ago to Central Pennsylvania where she's been embraced with open arms by friends of all ages, genders, and sexual orientations.
