One-on-one coaching and mentoring, to help you expand your creativity, increase your productivity or achieve that "Big Thing" project you've had on the back-burner for far too long...

For more than a dozen years, I've worked with writers, would-be writers, and other creatives to help them realize their creative, philanthropic, entrepreneurial, or other personal goals.

One-on-one mentoring and creativity coaching can help you as you work toward your individual vision. Think of it as personal training for your creative and intellectual life.

Coaching offered falls into four categories:

General Creativity: Including fiction, non-fiction, and other creative endeavors. I'll help you refine your vision, chart your path, adapt and adjust to inevitable change, and generally work toward your creative goals with purpose and intention.

Direct Instruction: I will work with you to facilitate a one-on-one version of the various writing, literature, and creative courses I have offered over the years, including: Fiction Basics, Intermediary Fiction Craft, Editing and Revision, Elements of Storytelling for Non-Fiction (General), Legacy/Biography/Memoir writing.

BIG THING Coaching: Helping you pursue that Big Thing project one step at a time with planning, monitoring, mentoring, advising, support, and accountability.

Expressive Writing/Deep Writing/Self-Reclamation: Ready to dig deeper and uncover layers of your story you didn't even know existed? Deep writing coaching includes Writing Out Loud mentoring and advising, guided expressive writing exercises, feedback and analysis of your writing, and support/advice/counsel throughout the sometimes-difficult process of finding your authentic self through the power of the written word.

Mentoring and coaching rates.

One-to-one mentoring and coaching provided via video conference, or in person in the Greater-Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Area.
