Writing coach

 What is a writing coach?

OwlJust as athletes, singers and actors have coaches, writers have coaches, too. Why?  To help them:

  • Set meaningful, measurable goals
  • Be held accountable
  • Build on their strengths while working on their weaknesses
  • Stay on track

In addition, a writing coach:

  • Offers editorial feedback on the client’s writing
  • Is an advocate for the client’s writing when life may seem to interfere
  • Provides support and understanding when taking a risk may be the only way to reach a writing goal
  • Acknowledges the challenges of writing while suggesting practical ways to handle them

(A writing coach is not a therapist. Instead of working on one’s past, a coach acknowledges the client’s current situation while focusing on what she can do to move ahead. Unlike a therapist, a coach works as an equal partner on the road to the client’s success.)
