HUMMINGWORDS WRITING COACHING AND EDITORIAL SERVICES Where Words Take Wing
Writing coaching and editorial services help you:
- Rekindle your creativity
- Develop your unique voice
- Define your project
- Set goals to maintain momentum
- Tighten your work to create the most powerful impact
With many decades of experience editing business documents, fiction, creative nonfiction, children’s books, poetry, essays, and memoirs, I can help you make your writing dazzle, whatever the genre.
Why Do You Need a Writer’s Coach?
You will stay highly motivated with the support of someone who understands your vision and is as excited about your project as you are.
How Does the Writing Coaching and Editorial Process Work?
After clarifying your goals, we create a custom-designed coaching plan to help you:
- Determine your audience, vision, and voice
- Clarify your main themes
- Devise a narrative structure
- Develop a timeline for completion
We then interact via phone and email on ideas and rough drafts to help you overcome obstacles and move smoothly toward the completion of your goals.
When it comes to polishing your final manuscript for publication, I perform an in-depth edit to help you:
- Eliminate typos, wordiness, and awkward phrasing
- Deepen the characters or analysis
- Hone the beginning and end for the greatest impact
To assess fit, try a complimentary half-hour exploration session.
