Welcome to Our Writers’ Help Site!


Write4Writers is the home website for Palm Harbor School of the Novel (PHSN), a writing avenue for group and individual learning. Created and run by writing coach and author Shirley Schirz, the school includes both beginning and practicing professional writers. Formed in April 2010, the number of active, writing writers continues to grow every month.

The goal of the school is to help improve the writing skills of its members, teach them about the craft of writing, and inform them of publication techniques and avenues. Since joining PHSN, two members of the group turned their passion for writing into professional writing careers. Three other members have published books and created movie scripts accepted for production.


We now proudly extend our efforts onto the Internet with the Write4Writer’s website. We hope to share our knowledge with you and give you some of the same advantages our local members enjoy. If we are successful, you will improve your writing skills, publish your writing, and perhaps earn a writing income.


Enjoy browsing our site and do come back for new lessons, essays, and resource updates.
