Sometimes completing a novel, memoir, or story collection can feel like the loneliest, most daunting task imaginable. Writing coaching is meant to make the task more manageable: Imagine a supportive mentor on your side of the process who knows first hand the struggle involved in creating a book. Are you having trouble getting started or staying focused on a current writing project? Would monthly or weekly writing exercises, assignments, and feedback motivate you and help you get back to your writing or complete your novel, story collection, or other writing project? We offer short or long-term coaching on all types of writing projects, as well as one-time meetings to help solve blocks, hurdles, or specific problems. We are all writers ourselves, so we understand intimately the frustrations, hurdles, and doubt that comes along with this territory. Our goal is to help you find a writing routine that works for you! Together we will craft a plan for the completion of your project, the development of new work, or the creation of a writing routine and make it fun in the process!
Depending on your unique situation, coaching sessions can include reviewing your work, goal and bench-mark setting, outlining, small assignments to get you inspired and thinking about your project, and phone/email support as you work. All coaching begins with a free phone consultation wherein we learn about you, your writing project, and the kind of coaching that would work best. Please let us know if there is a particular instructor you'd like to work with.
