Nora Profit is the owner of California’s only creative writing school—The Writing Loft. She specializes in working with writers serious about their craft—writers who want more than just their names on the cover of a book.
She knows that good writing is the foundation of real publishing success and has developed a proven technique for teaching superior writing skills anyone can easily learn. She believes success is born from knowing how to connect emotionally with readers and publishers.
Nora takes her message of writing well to thousands of writing groups and writing conferences annually. She utilizes her positively funny style to illustrate that superior writing quality is not only enjoyable and profitable, but much more than a laughing matter—writing well is a strategy for success.
Nora is an award winning journalist, feature writer, columnist, editor and author. She is a featured author in Chicken Soup for the Writer’s Soul and Chicken Soup: Living Your Dreams. Her own books include 10 Glaring Mistakes Amateur Writers Make and How to Avoid Them, The Ultimate Novel Writing Workbook and numerous how-to booklets on the craft of writing. Nora has had more than 400 articles published in regional, and national publications, and is the winner of the Women in Communications Writer’s Award, San Francisco.
