My Coaching Philosophy.
“ After forty years of writing for the stage and the page, I know what it is like to face that blank page, to be afraid to start, and then to judge yourself mercifully when you do. In writing coaching sessions I have created a safe, fun process by which you will be able to get enough courage to bring your story into the light. I will teach you how to push past your voice of doubt, develop a tried and true writing technique, and show you how to write stories you have always wanted to tell.”

SOME THINGS TO KNOW.
This is a fun, safe class for all levels of writers. ( and I’ve designed the class with a combo of writing exercises and video and stories so it’s great for audio and visual learners.
Each session is taped and so if you miss one it’s available for 6 weeks after the class ends.
Zoom is our platform so I give a tutorial on that before each class as well I make myself available for any questions.
Although you don’t have to, there is time for writers to read what they have been working on.

This is a fun energetic class with prompts. I do look at one of your stories and give feedback during each six-week session. And you will hear others read as well. But I do not do huge edits. I do not proof or copy edit. I don’t analyze the work other than how it works on the page.
I don’t give prescriptive notes as much as ask you the writer the questions that will you get the story you want to tell.
This is not good for business writing, or technical writing. I know absolutely nothing about science fiction. I am funny but you don’t need to be! I take your writing seriously.
No refunds. But course credits last up to six months of one fiscal year.
