A free glimpse into Elephant Academy’s Summer 2018’s 1st meeting: how to Write, with Waylon.


Learn to Rock your Social Media & Write Mindfully with Waylon Lewis
& Elephant’s Editors.

Elephant Academy empowers you to change the world for the kinder…and pay the bills, doing so. How to rock social media, how to write (book, blog…a sentence) as well as Ethics (surprisingly, everyone’s favorite part every time) and Editing (the best way to write darned better).

It’s three months, about 10 hours a week. We’ve done it for years. 1,000s have graduated. Everyone falls in love with everyone. It’s hard. You can do it from anywhere. You get to practice live in the field with our huge community.

The Summer session is only still open to those who see this blog:

Elephant’s Online Immersion in Social Media, New Media, Journalism Ethics, Writing, & Editing.

Take the leap and invest in your life going forward!
