I’m Amy B. Scher: writer, teacher, and mentor.

I help writers, artists, and other creatives get unblocked and back to work.

With no college degree or formal writing education, I’m proof that anyone can be successful in their creative endeavors. In addition to my bestselling books, my work has been featured in The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, GMA, CNN, CBS, New York Daily News, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Rumpus and more.

With over a decade of experience helping people break through blocks to become their happiest, healthiest, and most creative selves, my work is highly recommended by artists, literary agents, editors, and other creative industry professionals.

Here’s the truth: Your ability to create and your ease in creating is directly tied to how you feel.

When we don’t feel good, we can’t be the channel our work requires; which can cut us off from our source of creative energy, inspiration, and joy. In other words, we lose our flow. In my experience, creative blocks often stem from a depressed creative energy, or rather the literal depression of self—usually, from being buried under the stress and stuff of life.

I give writers, artists, and other creatives the clarity, confidence, and support — no matter where they are in their process — to get unblocked and move forward. I’ll help you feel, think, and work better.
