Writing Coaching

Freelance Nonfiction Writing Content Creation and Marketing Business Writing

Writing can be challenging for many reasons even if you’re a professional writer. I know, I’ve earned my living as a writer, editor, and teacher for more than 25 years.

Do any of these statements sound familiar?

  • You know what you want to say, but you just can’t get it down on paper.
  • You don’t know where or how to begin.
  • You’re not sure your grammar and punctuation skills are up to the task.
  • You’re blocked and are tired of staring at a blank screen.
  • Your writing skills are keeping you from advancement.
  • You’ve written yourself into a corner and can’t get out.
  • You write too much, not enough, or just don’t know when to stop.
  • You’re tired of paying other people to write for you.
  • You just want someone to read what you wrote and show you how you can improve it.
  • You don’t like to write and want to make the process easier.

If any of these statements fit, a professional writing coach can show you how to turn things around and turn you into a more confident, capable writer

What This Coaching Is Not

Writing coaching is not editing, proofreading, or ghostwriting. The goal is to provide you with feedback and guidance to help you improve your writing skills, so you can rely less on others and become a better, more capable, well-rounded writer.

How to Work with Me

Initially, we will have a 20-minute complimentary Zoom meeting to discuss your goals and desired outcomes. If we decide that we’re a good fit, we will discuss your options for coaching, and you will receive a letter of agreement that spells out the program you have chosen, roles and responsibilities, and payment and termination options.

I will review your writing and coach you for improvement by:

  • Teaching you how to write for your targeted market.
  • Helping you meet your goals for writing.
  • Showing you how to improve structure and organization for greater clarity.
  • Pointing out weaknesses and explaining how to improve them.
  • Giving you tools that improve style, tone, grammar, punctuation, and more.
