About Benya Clark

You most likely know me from Medium, where I write a daily-ish sobriety blog called Exploring Sobriety. This year, I also started a YouTube channel about sobriety, writing, and self-improvement.

Now, I have a new project: a blogging course for writers on Medium. This unofficial course is intended to help writers grow on my favorite blogging platform.

Here's the interesting part: I've decided to run this course on a pay-what-you-want model. All of the materials are available through Medium and YouTube. It's up to you to pay whatever you feel the course is worth, and no more than you can afford.

This is a bit of a crazy experiment. Maybe nobody will pay a dime, and I'll have poured countless hours of work down the drain.

However, I'm willing to take that risk because I'm an ardent believer in the pay-what-you-want philosophy. By removing the financial barrier, my goal is to level the playing field. I want to provide all writers the tools they need to succeed, regardless of their ability to pay.

With your support, I hope that this crazy experiment will become a wild success. By joining me on Patreon, you'll be supporting the continued development of a course that helps all writers thrive.

Thank you so much for your support!
