Coaching & Mentoring
Reach your writing goals and maximize your potential with a writing mentor.
Welcome to WriterSpark Writing Academy. WriterSpark is an Academy created to help aspiring writers on their path to publication. We have some amazing courses in development including a Novel Writing Master Class, a Mystery Novel Master Class, and Craft Intensives focusing on various story elements. Today, I’m here to talk with you about our One-on-One Coaching & Mentoring.
There are times when everybody can benefit from one-on-one attention. Do you struggle to set, achieve, or finish writing project and goals? You’re definitely not alone. 80% of Americans want to write a novel. A small percentage actually accomplish that goal.
Think about the following questions:
Do you struggle to achieve your writing goals and finish your projects?
Do you need help understanding how to craft a scene, or how to plot your novel?
Do you need guidance in developing a stronger voice or realistic and compelling characters?
Could you use support as you work through the writing of your book?
Would thoughtful, honest, and constructive feedback from a mentor help you on your path?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, a One-on-One coaching mentor could be the very thing you need to help you reach your writing goals.
- The WriterSpark Coaching package includes ten hours of One-on-One conversation via phone or Zoom.
My WriterSpark approach to One-on-One Coaching & Mentoring is three-fold.
First, I will help you identify your creative writing goals and prioritize them.
Next, we will create actionable steps. Using accountability targets, constructive and insightful feedback, and encouragement, I will help you stay focused on your goals. Knowing what you want to accomplish and actually accomplishing it are two different things. With a coaching mentor by your side, you can stay the course.
Finally, I will help you overcome obstacles you face in your writing process. This means having a ‘growth mindset’. Having a coaching mentor by your side can help you keep doubt and self-sabotage at bay. Together, we will focus on positive and forward movement, empowering you to push through any stumbling blocks.
My ultimate goal is to be your guide on your writing journey, helping you to make your writing the absolute best it can be.
- Let’s talk about what a One-on-One Coaching session looks like.
- My preferred method of communication is Zoom, however, the phone or Skype are also options. We can have audio sessions only, or audio/visual so we are actually face-to-face. My goal is to make you as comfortable as possible.
Each session is 1 hour. The ten hours included in the coaching package can be spread out between 3-6 months. The first session is a fact-finding hour. During these 60 minutes, we will establish your needs, identify your goals, prioritize them, and set expectations for moving forward.
- Subsequent sessions will be directed by the goals set during the first meeting. At the end of each meeting, we will make a plan for the next session.
- WriterSpark Coaching sessions are customized based on client needs, but may include:
- One-on-One lessons on story elements
- Developmental feedback
- Scene review
- Additional, as determined together
With my support, you will create a roadmap for success, and work to achieve your goals. As a coach, I will help you develop the tools you need to get past any stumbling blocks. I will be there to help you with support, guidance, and encouragement.
