Four-Week Motivational Coaching 

Do you need a buddy to check in with about your current project? Are you stuck, and not sure about your next project? Do you need to be held accountable for writing goals? Do you have questions about the writing process?

I work with writers of all skill levels.

For $125, I offer a four-week motivational package that includes:

  • Four weekly 30-minute chats (phone or Zoom)
  • Motivation, encouragement, and accountability
  • Story/plot consultation This isn’t writing feedback. Instead, we’ll talk about your plot, characters, and your current or upcoming projects.

Workshop: “How to Publish Your Work in Literary Magazines”

I teach a comprehensive, interactive two-hour online workshop, “How to Publish Your Work in Literary Magazines.” Private and group sessions are available. You’ll come away with a robust reference document, support, and a list of almost 300 journals in various tiers.

Testimonials about my workshop:

“That workshop last night was amazing! It would be a deal at three times the price. I can’t thank you enough for being willing to share all that you’ve learned. You have shined a light into the black box. No, more than that. You have shown us where the black box is and how to open it, then shined a light into every corner of it!” -Elizabeth K.

“Thank you again for the class and the resources. You covered so much ground. It was phenomenal! I’m telling you, from my consultant perspective – you are not charging enough for that training!!” -Anita B.

“Thanks so much for the extremely helpful and encouraging webinar this evening. You gave me much good advice and many good tools to use going forward in this trade!” -Deryl D.

“Thank you for hosting the workshop this past week. I felt like I was in a college-level course. I appreciate you for arming us with a wealth of information and sharing honestly about your personal experiences. As an emerging writer, there’s much I need to know about the technicalities and best practices, but it’s the addition of your personal story that made all the difference.” – Mannie T.
