Hello, Protagonists!

Welcome to CREATIVE.INSPIRED.HAPPY, a friendly, vibrant community of thousands who believe that EVERYONE can spark creativity and build an inspired, happier life.

I’m Evelyn Skye, New York Times bestselling author, #1 Netflix film/literary collaborator, sugar fiend, and incorrigible optimist.

I used to be a corporate lawyer whose days were filled with boring, repetitive work and I felt unfulfilled. But one day, I realized that even small moments of creativity made me happier.

If you've ever felt the same way, you're in the right place!


Besides a warm, welcoming community, you’ll also get:

  • Our Video Podcast: Interviews with incredibly successful writers about how they rose from obscurity and built their careers.

    • You’ll get conversations with authors like New York Times bestsellers Pierce Brown, Ali Hazelwood, Scarlett St. Clair, Alka Joshi, National Book Award winner Sabaa Tahir, and more.

    • I handpick these guests for you—not only because they’re talented, but also because they are genuinely wonderful people who will make you more creative, inspired, or happy.

    • Available in video, audio, and transcript formats

  • Scholarships for Aspiring Writers

    • $2,500 for a high school senior who is a promising writer, to put toward college tuition

  • Creativity Mini-Challenges - quick, whimsical exercises to spark your creativity and make you smile

  • Our Book Club for Writers & Curious Readers

    • for Writers who love reading and want to examine stories more closely, and

    • for Readers who are curious about why they feel the way they do about a book

      • Book discussion (30-45 min)—What makes this book tick? We’ll talk about things like whether the plot worked and if not, why not? Where was the pacing great and where did the tension dip, and why? And why do some people love Character A but others hate him, while Character B is universally adored?

      • Bonus Writers’ Chat (30 min): After the book discussion, we’ll have an optional hangout to share what we’re working on, ask each other for advice on writer’s block or finding a literary agent or doing book publicity, etc.

  • Glimpses Behind-the-Scenes of a Bestselling Author’s Life: my book tours, a movie premiere, diary entries, and thought-provoking essays about Creativity, Inspiration, and Happiness

  • Creativity VIP chat group: a private, backstage hangout space for subscribers

    • submit questions for upcoming podcast guests

    • ask other writers for advice

    • share your writing, and more!

  • Protagonist Spotlight & Happiness Sprinkles - Each month, I’ll feature a few books or essays that you have loved or written. If you have something you want to share with the community, just let me know! I also share my favorite “things worth smiling about” in the current month.

  • Exclusive Gifts and Bonus Content from my books—in the past, I’ve gifted limited edition art prints and personal, handwritten postcards from Paris when I was on book tour there.
