Literary Coaching

So you have a brilliant idea for a manuscript. Congratulations! But where do you go now?


Literary coaching is a flexible concept-to-completion service where author and editor work together over the course of an established time frame to create an edited manuscript. A potential work plan, for example, may take place over six months with monthly meetings with the editor for guidance and editing. In the end, the author will have a complete, edited manuscript.


Literary coaching is especially helpful for:

  • Expanding an idea into a book
  • Setting writing goals and completion deadlines
  • Overcoming writer's block
  • Helping new writers find their voice
  • Working with a new genes


When the manuscript is complete, we will discuss the various publication options. If submitting to a traditional publisher, you will be given a list of presses looking for your type of material and how they like to be approached. The same goes for reaching out to agents. If self-publishing looks like the best avenue, you will be presented with a list of printers, designers, typesetters, and publicists to have on your team (in some cases, a self-publishing press may offer some or all of these services).


The world of publishing is a big place with roads of opportunity leading in different directions. For this reason, it can be incredibly helpful to have someone by your side to coach you throughout the process.
