About UtNC

Empowering the literary community

Unleashing the Next Chapter is a boutique digital media marketing and management company that serves the literary community. We help authors, writing-adjacent small businesses, creative organizations, conferences, and conventions find their voice and tell their story in a way that engages their ideal audience.

Kathryn McClatchy started UtNC after becoming a stroke survivor at the age of 37. Determined to reclaim her life, she learned to write and speak again — and started blogging about it all. What began as a personal blog turned into a business, as Kathryn realized her passion for helping others find their voice and tell their story while serving as a liaison between the literary and marketing communities.

The mission of UtNC is to empower people through storytelling by providing marketing resources and support to get their stories into the hands and hearts of those who need them. Whether you’re an author looking to build your platform or a small business owner wanting to create engaging content, we can help you reach your goals and connect with your audience in a meaningful way.

Unleashing the Next Chapter has five areas of focus:

  1. Digital Media Marketing services that help creative entrepreneurs, small businesses, and organizations reach their target audience. We believe in building relationships with our clients and providing customized services that fit their unique needs. Whether it’s done-for-you or done-with-you services, we are here to help unleash the next chapter of your business!
  2. Coaching and Consulting that provides individuals and organizations with the resources, tools, and strategies they need to succeed. Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been in business for years, we can help you take your brand to the next level.
  3. Public Speaking & Training. Kathryn has been speaking and training groups on digital marketing, social media, productivity, and other topics for over a decade. She has designed and conducted in-person and online workshops, keynotes, and conferences for clients including writing organizations, corporations, and church groups. Presentation topics offered include Digital Marketing, Social Media, Productivity, Author/Online Platform Building, and Inspiration/Motivation. More specific and customized topics are available upon request.
  4. Online International Writers Community for authors ready to level up. We provide a space where authorpreneurs can come together to ask questions, learn, share their experience and expertise, network, and grow their careers. We believe that by providing our members with monthly group coaching sessions, a Discord group, co-working space, and opportunities to learn by doing, we can help them achieve their writing dreams. In 2022, our Community wrote and self-published their first book, Next Chapters Unleashed: a beachy anthology, which went on to win an award.
  5. Advocacy. UtNC is using its digital reach to speak out on behalf of individuals who have been silenced. We strive to empower those with invisible disabilities, and survivors of domestic abuse and human-trafficking. We are passionate about advocating for religious freedom, literacy programs, and assistance/service dog concerns.
