Dear fellow Tribe Writers,
Are you overwhelmed? Writers today are told to blog, tweet, use Facebook, and Goodreads, all in the name of their online platform? But honestly, wouldn’t you rather be focusing on your creative writing?
Here’s the hard truth: most creative writers who are trying to build their platform are wasting their time. Instead of working on their novels or memoirs, they’re writing blog posts they don’t care about.
Yes, you need to build a platform. In this changing publishing industry, your platform is more important than ever. But what if there was a better way?
That’s what the Story Cartel Course is for: helping you get more readers, grow audience, and ultimately sell more books without having to focus on meaningless self-promotion.
You’ll learn how to become a successful, 21st century writer.
Does this sound like the kind of class you’d be interested in? Then, keep reading….
About Story Cartel and Its Founder
My name is Joe Bunting. In 2011, I launched The Write Practice, a writing blog that has grown to over 75,000 monthly readers. However, as I tried to publish my creative writing, I found most of my readers more interested in my writing advice than my stories. That’s when I realized much of the work I had done to build my platform wasn’t actually helping me sell my creative writing.
That’s when I started Story Cartel, a website with thousands of passionate readers who are looking to discover new books by emerging authors. Through Story Cartel, I’ve gotten to work with New York Times bestselling authors, traditional publishers, and successful independent authors.
Through Story Cartel, I learned what it takes to create a successful platform that actually sells books.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed trying to build your platform while working on your creative writing, I created this course to help you get more readers and sell more books without wasting your time writing blog posts you don’t care about.
“Now… I know I’m a Writer…”
This experience has changed the way I see myself as a writer. Before, I didn’t even see myself as one. Now I not only know I am a writer, I also have the tools to grow.
Build Your Cartel
It all starts with your Cartel.
With the help of my Cartel, I built my blog to over 75,000 readers, launched a book that became a #1 Amazon bestseller, and created a full-time income with my writing.
How could a Story Cartel help you?
“… Demystified the Publication Process.”
I used to dream of being the next J. K. Rowling. Reality check—the fiction business isn’t magical; it’s hard work. The Story Cartel Course makes it easier. In addition to the rich course material, I had the support of a network of my fellow students, or the Cartel, and my strongest supporter was founder, Joe Bunting.

Every Cartel has rules, and this course is broken up in six different units that correspond to the Six Rules of Story Cartel. You can go through the course at your own pace or follow along the rest of the class through the weekly emails.
Every week, you will get six or seven lessons on how to write better, build your audience, and publish your work. These lessons come in every format, including audio, video, discussions, and readings, to meet the needs of every learning style.
Here’s more information on the contents of the course:
Rule 1: Stories Were Meant to Be Shared
In this unit, you’ll learn how to build your platform with your stories. Together, we’ll launch our stories online, receive instant feedback, and build a larger, more connected audience.
Rule 2: Every Writer Needs a Cartel
In this unit, you’ll learn the true power of Cartels to grow your audience, help you sell more books, and inspire you to write better stories.
Rule 3: Write Better Stories
Great platforms are built with excellence. In this unit, dive deep into the writing craft, learning how to write stories worth reading.
Rule 4: Writers Read
“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time, or the tools, to write,” said Stephen King, and in this unit, you’ll learn how reading can be one of the best networking tools you have as a writer.
Rule 5: Ask For Collaborators, Not Spectators
Learn to Launch like the pros! In this very important unit, we will walk you through the Story Cartel Launch Formula, showing you how to leverage your Cartel to sell more books.
Rule 6: Tools Help
The Printing Press was a tool that allowed stories to be shared further than ever before, and in this unit, we’ll talk about the tools that can help you share yours more effectively.
Joe made learning fun!
“The Story Cartel course helped me build upon what I had already started with the publication of my memoir. I was able to access the course material and forum activities in my own time. I also feel I have made enough meaningful connections with classmates to hop on board at any time. I am very happy I took the plunge when reason would have cautioned me to not take on one more thing.”
