A life well-read and well-written is a life well-lived. 

Books and reading have the power to transform our lives. We meet new friends, travel to locations, experience new perspectives and learn valuable life lessons with each turn of the page. And, when we explore the themes of the book in our own lives, from love and relationships to baking and gardening, magic happens. The book leaves us a better person than when we started. Get Liter(erate) is that magic. 

Need Habits?

Our lives are busy. Get Lit(erate) offers monthly coaching and tools to grow your daily reading and writing habits and offers weekly inspiration to keep your new literate habits going strong. 

Need Heart?

Reading and writing is a form of self-care (and therapy!). Get Lit(erate) offers a new themed invitation to read, write, learn & love each month to help you cultivate a life you love. 

Need Community?

Things are better with bookish and notebookish friends. Get Lit(erate) offers monthly book clubs, literary society meetings, notebook sessions, quarterly planning retreats and more!

I'm Stephanie!

I'm a book-loving, notebook-hoarding literacy teacher educator on a mission to change lives one book and one notebook at a time. 

I’ve carved out a little corner of the virtual world just for women to harness the power of reading and writing to build a better life full of intention, inspiration and creativity. 

I've been sharing my journey on A Lit Life and am thrilled to offer Get Lit(erate), my monthly, digital subscription of literate love to help others cultivate a life they love one book and one notebook at a time. 

Get Lit(erate) is so much more than a book club.

Our Mission:

The mission behind Get Lit(erate) is simple: help others cultivate a life they love through reading, writing and learning.

Reading and writing has the potential to transform our lives. There are many documented physical, mental, emotional and creative benefits to daily reading and writing, but it can be challenging to find the time for this kind of restorative self-care, to know what to read next and figure out exactly how it can support a life you love.

That’s where Get Lit(erate) comes in: delivering book lists, writing prompts, virtual conversations and more to introduce new ways of believing, living and experiencing the world through books and notebooks.

Each month, Get Lit(erate) releases a monthly dose of reading and writing inspiration right to your Inbox. Here's what's included:

Monthly Content Drops on the 1st of Each Month:
