Discover what’s holding you back

…and break through the blocks with personalized coaching, tailored specifically to your needs.

If you’ve got a writing project you’re stuck on…
If you’ve run low on self-confidence…
if you’d like help strategizing a good theme and creating an outline…
if you’d like me to suggest edits and then review your revisions…
We can make that happen with a personal coaching session by phone or Zoom.

Click to get on the Wait List for private coaching

I accept only a few coaching clients at a time. Here’s how to become one of them:

First, click on the Wait List photo and fill out the survey.

Then, when a coaching slot opens up, I’ll contact you to book a 20-minute evaluation, where you can talk about your needs and the writing you want to work on. If it’s a fit, we can customize one of these programs for you. (Payment plans available at all levels.)

The Zora Neale Hurston: a half-day VIP session, recommended for writers who want  in-depth guidance on one targeted area.
Send me your work and I’ll review it and make notes. Then we get together for four hours on a recorded call and I’ll run down my comments about the piece’s structure, themes, style—whatever’s most important to you. I’ll suggest techniques for you to try, and we’ll work together to make sure you know how to use them.


The Nora Ephron: three months of private coaching, recommended for writers who have several areas they’d like to improve.
Does it help you to have deadlines? Accountability? We’ll book 10-15 minute weekly check-ins. Then we’ll dig into your work together in one or two private coaching sessions per month (two 30-minute sessions or one for 60 minutes), depending on the kind of project you’re working on.


The Virginia Woolf: six months of private coaching, recommended for writers working on longer or more complex pieces. All of the coaching and accountability of the Ephron program, plus support via text/email/phone as needed. If you’ve got a book inside you, this is the perfect way to get it out. Invest in six months to focus on your work; you’ll be amazed at what you can produce.
