“To travel is to take a journey into yourself.”
- Danny Kaye, American actor
This page is for you if you want explore this new side of yourself through creative writing.
You’re no stranger to getting outside your comfort zone.
After all, you’ve moved countries. Maybe more than once.
But writing’s a different kind of ‘uncomfortable.’
Left alone with your thoughts, you start to doubt what you’ve put down on the page.
Or consumed by fear, you don’t write at all.
I’ve been there myself.
That’s why I’m passionate about helping people work through their fears so creative writing is what it should be - FUN.
If writing seems more scary than fun, why not start the journey together?
My writing coaching might be for you if you want to:
write creatively but you’re not sure how to start.
write more consistently and stop getting stuck
identify and overcome the fears that are holding you back.
feel more confident about the way you use language to tell stories
work with someone who will cheer you on while giving honest, constructive feedback that will help you improve your writing.
If this sounds like you, let’s see if we’re a good fit for each other. Please get in touch and tell me a bit about yourself, your current project or idea.
What kind of writing can you help me with?
Over the past ten years I’ve helped people with short fiction, creative nonfiction, business writing, professional biographies, resumes, editing and proofreading.
How does coaching work?
It depends on your writing project, but I usually start with a video call, followed by written feedback via GoogleDocs.
What if I have ideas but have never tried creative writing?
No problem. We all have to start somewhere. I can help you focus your thoughts and work out how to move forward.
I’m not a native-English speaker. Can you still help me?
Absolutely! My background in teaching English means I know what it’s like if you struggle with the language side of writing. You’ll need at least an Upper Intermediate level of English.
I’m not sure whether I’m ready for coaching. Do you have any resources that I can work through on my own?
