So, what does a writing coach do?
Do you have a desire to write, but perhaps you find yourself frustrated by an inability to develop or organise your writing, or perhaps you’re getting bogged down in the process? Maybe a writing coach can help you.
A writing coach helps the writer develop a clear and compelling premise or plot, determine a tone, style, and voice based on the intended audience, and produce a coherent, captivating narrative, whether fiction or nonfiction. … A writing coach is like a personal trainer for a writer. A writing coach is a mentor.
Almost all coaches charge by the hour and rates can range from $30 – $300/hr. Cheaper doesn’t mean better, but neither does more expensive necessarily mean better.
How does it go?
It starts with an interview, we then help the writer organise their project, and set a schedule for edits and revisions.
Should I get a writing coach?
Whether you’re new to the game or you’ve got a big list of writing credits, a writing coach can be an invaluable career partner. She can give you extra accountability, create action steps toward specific goals, help you get unstuck and offer a fresh perspective on your work.
Book coaching is a combination of support, conversation, and editorial feedback. A book coach will work with you over a period of weeks or months and help you with your writing project. And as your book coach, we’ll provide you with friendly encouragement and accountability so that you can finish your book.
Wider applications to writing coaching
A writing coach can help a professional share expertise, a business owner sell a product, an academic report on research, or a student complete an application or course essay. He or she will benefit poets, short story writers, and novelists, as well as authors of nonfiction works, including articles, reports, and book manuscripts.
A writing coach helps elicit the writer’s experience and expertise, guides the writer to develop a creative, productive spatial and temporal environment, and trains the writer to craft effective prose. He or she helps the writer find the heart of the content, what works and what needs work, how to carry out research and conduct interviews, and how to frame and organise the material (and what to include and what to leave out).
