Why I Love Coaching

As a coach, I can work with writers at any stage or any part of the writing process, but my favorite things to work on with writers are organization and structure. I love helping writers think about all the pieces of their project and how they can fit together and be presented in a clear and logical way, especially for larger projects where these big picture considerations can be hard to grapple with. I also love working with writers on developing effective writing strategies and habits that fit into the context of their real lives instead of an imagined ideal academic life.
