Writing Coach

What is a Writing Coach?

Writing coaches offer the tools you need to set goals and help you achieve them. That’s the simple answer. This can mean different things to different people.

An example or two might be…

  • For the person who wants to take the plunge into becoming a full-time writer, this can mean coaching them to develop and impliment a strategy to make that happen, all the while working with them to iron out any problems along the way.
  • For the budding writer who has a story knocking around in their head but hasn’t picked up a pen since high school, it can be looking at how to get started, create beneficial writing practices, and turn out a first draft.
  • To the seasoned first-draft-novelist who has a desk full of first drafts but gets lost and frustrated with the revision process, a writing coach can help go over the draft, pin point what the author thinks is missing, and create a methodical means of revision and editing.

These are just a few things that a writing coach can help with.

If you’re unsure whether or not coaching is right for you, feel free to contact me and we can set up a completely free 15-30 minute consultation to discuss what you want to do and if you want to work with me. I will not pressure you into any sales during this FREE call. What I mean by that is that I will not spend time trying to sell to you, to get you to sign up for a package or my services. Instead, those precious moments out of your day will just be a discussion between me and you about how best to get your voice into the world through your writing.

Contact Me for a full price and package sheet and set up a free 15-30 minute introduction to see if we would work well together.

Monthly Installation Options

Payment installation plans are available for any of the 6-month packages and upgrades. Each will have a non-refundable down-payment of £1,200, payable by the end of the first month. This can be paid with an initial £600 upon registering for the package, and the other £600 paid sometime within the first 30 days of your package.

The remaining sum of your package will be divided equally by the five remaining months of your package, with no additional interest or spacing fee.

For example, if you are purchasing the standard 6-month Full Package at £5,000, you will be required to pay £600 immediately and the next £600 within the following 30 days of registering. Your next payment will be one calendar month later and be a fifth of the remaining cost. Your remaining cost is £3,800, which leaves you with £760 for your remaining five installments.

Feel free to email me for Terms and conditions regarding cancellations.


Let’s build something together.
