Contact Joy for Speaking Engagements, Writer Retreats, Conferences, Workshops, Book Clubs, book signings, and virtual events. 

If you're planning a retreat and need a plenary speaker or workshop facilitator, we welcome you to contact the author.


Joy Jordan-Lake is a voracious reader, from classic literature to contemporary commercial fiction—she loves bringing the lives and lessons of earlier writers to life and exploring connections between spiritual and creative expression. 

Joy particularly enjoys seeing participants set new writing goals for themselves, and, inspired by examples of established writers over the centuries and by their community of writers at the retreat, consider how, specifically, they can continue improving their craft.

Interested in Having Joy Speak at Your Book Club?


If your BOOK CLUB is reading or planning to read one of Joy's books... by all means contact us!

​If you're in the Nashville area or if Joy is traveling to your area, in-person book clubs are great fun. And if not, Skyping or FaceTime works well for members' getting to AsktheAuthorAnything and all of us to exchange stories and ideas.

If you've already held an event with one of Joy's books, please feel free to send pictures to the Contact info. We'd love to post them and give a shout out to your club!
