Coaching for Writers

it is a thousand pities never to say what one feels

― Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway

Coaching for Writers

Being a writer is a pretty unique profession, the problems that arise through planning and writing a novel or collecting poems together for a book are things that non-writers might struggle to understand. It is obviously a creative profession, but you also need to be able to plan and structure things. You also need to be able to market yourself, build your own website, learn how to perform your own work. All of this with a deadline looming in the future where you’ll have to be creative and original on someone else’s schedule.

This is where coaching can help. In a coaching session we can talk over your creative project in a supportive and understanding atmosphere. We can cover everything from the very first sketching out of ideas for a novel, to chapter structure, exploring character backstories, thinking about locations. We can talk about all types of writing, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, scripts.

As a poet and an ICF trained coach I can support you in your creative projects through coaching sessions. I can ask questions which might help you understand why a certain chapter is feeling off or why you just don’t feel happy about certain poems you’ve written. Talking through the creative process with a trained professional is a really valuable experience. You can be assured that I understand what you’re going through and I want you to reach your goals.

I won’t advise you on what to do next, give you line edits, or character suggestions but I’ll support you through coaching techniques to help you realise what you want to do next. Everything we discuss in our sessions is just between us. I can provide you with a recording of each session for your to rewatch, just to ensure that gem of an idea you had doesn’t get lost and forgotten!

We can book sessions to coincide with deadlines across a single project over a number of months, or we can do more frequent sessions to support you at the end of your project. Whatever works for you.

All sessions will be held on Google Meet. Sessions can be scheduled to suit your deadlines.
