Creative Writing Editor and Coach

What Can I Do for You?

Working on a book and need a coach who can help you take your creative writing to the next level?

Are you concerned your writing won't impact your reader or achieve its goal? Do you need a professional coach who can guide you on the writing process in a way that guides you to build skills you can use on later projects? 

 

OR

 

Are you concerned that errors and discrepancies will impact the clarity of your message? Do you need a professional editor that can help you correct grammatical and clarity issues so your writing project achieves its goals and you successfully communicate your message?

 

I can work with you in two ways--either as a coach who helps with a project while you build skills you can use in the future, or as an editor who helps you polish your work's clarity and purpose to perfection and make your writing stand out. 

 

What kinds of issues do I help you with?

Whatever you need! 

~copyediting, grammar editing, craft elements, content overhaul~

We customize a plan that achieves your goals and makes your book or project stand out.

 

Why work with me?

 

My coaching approach includes working with diverse creative writers in various genres, background in studying writing as a reader, writer, and teacher, and commitment to student success. I appreciate the challenges people face in dealing with writing challenges. Writing can be a mysterious and vulnerable process.  I use a compassionate and honest approach to help you overcome challenges and achieve your goals by using my expertise to help your writing reach its full potential. 

I have a master's in English Literature from Georgia Southern University and a master's of fine arts in creative writing at Sewanee School of Letters, University of the South. I'm a published writer, and I teach creative writing in the local community and at Southern New Hampshire University. 

 

Who I Work With

Beginning and Intermediate Creative Writers

Creating something out of thin air from your mind to the page can be scary. It feels like you're looking over the edge of a cliff about to jump, or perhaps you feel like your work is crap. I've been there, and know how icky is feels to hate your own writing, or worse, hate yourself for not writing when it's your dream. With an MFA in creative writing, published works, and experience teaching beginning creative writing, I can help you get "unstuck," brainstorm ideas, refine your project, and creating a finished project ready for publication.

Academic and Nonfiction Writers

If you're a graduate student or academic working on an academic project, it's easy to get bogged down in the process, look over your work so much it no longer makes sense, and want to give up altogether. The thesis, term paper, or article sits in a drawer for months, looming in the back of your mind. I've been there, having completed two graduate programs and one graduate thesis. I can help you get unstuck, create clarity in your message, and document and edit your work with precision. 

Bloggers and Book Writers

Coming up with material for a book or blog can be challenging. Am I getting my message to my audience? Am I addressing them based on my goals? Have I stated all my ideas effectively? Have I established credibility in my writing style? Will my message achieve its goal and convince my audience or sell my product? As your coach, I will help you answer "yes!" to all these questions and create a killer blog or book at any or all stages in your writing process. 

Don't Fit Any of These Descriptions?

That's okay! Fill in the message form, and we'll set up a free 20 minute consultation to discuss your needs. We can customize a plan that works for you.
