My writing coaching is modeled on sports and performing arts coaching. I work with writers who are highly motivated to increase their fluency and range across nonfiction genres. I don’t provide standardized instruction, but neither do I lead you to “your own answers,” as conventional (life, business, career, executive) coaches do. Instead, I act as a consultant on your unique path of growth as a writer, offering help that includes a custom blend of troubleshooting, encouragement, expertise, and referral to resources.

We might be a fit if:

  • You want to publish complex ideas or emotional content to a general audience. 
  • You are already a capable nonfiction writer. You may have written a PhD dissertation or published articles in a specialized field. Maybe you write regularly for business. I can also help creative writers build chops in commercial writing.
  • You’re a self-directed learner looking for someone to help you identify your particular writing strengths, troubleshoot your writing process, and find the resources to level-up.

You want people in your life who will help you to think in new, different, and more nuanced ways. My friend Barbara Saunders always has a unique perspective on my work and takes the time to offer detailed comments. (Incidentally, our podcast interview about how we misjudge introverts is one of my most popular.)
