Have you ever wanted clear actionable advice from a successful freelance writer who regularly receives over 300,000 monthly views?

If this is you, think about hiring me for coaching!

Coaching services are ideal for those interested in support, guidance, feedback, and accountability.

Work with me one-on-one to learn how to write better, develop your writing skills, beat writer’s block, get an idea off the ground, or complete a specific project: a novel, memoir, nonfiction book, young adult book, children’s book, short story, essay, magazine article, screenplay, stageplay, or poetry.

Coaching services are fully customizable to meet your unique needs and goals. Decide how often we meet (once/week, twice/month, once/month), and how we spend our time together.

Private Instruction

I can teach you how to write better and ensure that you produce work steadily. Work on short stories, essays, articles, poems, or another form of your choosing.

You’ll submit writing to me on a regular basis according to achievable deadlines we’ll set up together; I will read and provide editorial feedback and commentary; then we’ll meet with you to discuss how the work may be improved. We’ll target specific craft issues you struggle with using the approach that is most appealing to you: assignments, writing exercises, readings, and/or good old-fashioned conversation.


  • Preliminary 15 minute Q&A to determine your needs, goals, preferences, and expectations
  • Regular exchange of creative writing and professional feedback
  • Regular meetings to discuss feedback and develop craft
  • Optional extras like assignments, writing exercises, and readings

$50/1-hr. meeting + $35/hr. for prep. (if necessary)
