Private Coaching

I work with beginning and intermediate writers of essays and fiction. Using email, phone calls, and/or Skype, clients are coached through goal-setting, plot, voice, techniques, and information on publishing and the use of social media. Use the contact form and let me know a bit about yourself and your writing goals.


MTSU Write
