Where can you go to find the personal attention you need to succeed at your publishing goals and become a better writer? Books and classes only go so far and may not address your particular needs. It’s not easy to apply what you learn from books or courses to your specific writing project. According to our clients, working with a coach is the most effective way to get the help you need with your writing.
Here’s what our clients say about our coaching service:
After receiving my MFA, publishing many stories, and receiving awards for my writing, I knew I was a skilled writer. But, like any writer, I have areas in my work that need improvement. Trish, you gave me exceptional, directive support in those areas – in my case, plot and wordiness. With your guidance, it took me only six months to write the book I’ve been trying to write for years — and to get a top New York literary agent to represent me. Now, a major publishing house has bought the rights and will be publishing it. You led me (at times hand-held me) through the process of creating a superb query and synopsis. I could not have done this without you.
Kerry Cohen Hoffman,MFA, Lennox, MA, author of Easy, published by Simon & Schuster
I just thought I’d let you know my memoir about my strange childhood home has been accepted for publication. With the addition of some historical material, the book is essentially the same as when I worked with you on it. Thank you so much for all your help. You were very instrumental in my getting this published.
Kate Barlow, Oakville, Canada, author of Abode of Love, in press, Mainstream Publishing.
With your coaching, there were such noticeable changes in my writing. I received more education from you, than I did in most college courses. It was quite intense. In fact, it was remarkable. You are a talented woman with so much integrity. You changed the course of my life. I am now a writer and freelance reporter.
Christina Macone-Greene, Fallbrook, CA
I have taken numerous creative writing classes at local colleges and I’ve attended a couple of writing workshops and I can honestly say I have never received such professional help on any of my work as you have provided. Thanks a million.
James Wray, San Diego, author of award-winning “Dark Toast” published in the West Wind Review.
I must admit I have learned more from you helping me with this book then I would have by taking a course or even reading about what to do. I think my book is much better and I have been able to include everything that is important. I really enjoyed the rewriting process. I am interested in seeing how we revise the synopsis and write the cover letter to agents. I look forward to working with you on the sequel.
