Why would you want a creative writing coach?

  • Are you working on a new project?

A new project can be daunting and it is nice to have some help to get started. It’ll also help you save time and avoid the most common challenges.

Maybe you’re a scriptwriter who wants to try novel writing or perhaps you want to try picture books for the first time or perhaps it’s a genre change for you.

  • It’s for new writers & more experienced writers.

The coaching is personalised and adaptable. In our first session, we figure out who you are, where you are and what you want to achieve. It’s about you and your writing.


How does the coaching work?

All writers are at different stages of their writing journey and the coaching is very flexible and is tailored for each student.

  • Each session is 60 minutes and takes place via either Zoom, Skype or Facebook Video.

Simply put, the more you do, the more we can get done, but keep in mind it is a lot of work.



The sessions can be done weekly or monthly. Some writers prefer to have their sessions as close together as possible and others prefer to spread it out over a few weeks.

These are just suggestions and you can work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

We both have to find a time that would be suitable and take time zones and work schedules into account, but after hours and weekends are possible.

These sessions are adaptable and adjustable. You can also add more sessions should you wish to work at a slower pace and have more of your writing reviewed.
