If you need accountability and guidance while completing your Writer’s Welcome Kit and committing to the writing life, our coaching level class is for you. You’ll start with a 15-minute discussion of your goals with a professional writer, send in each packet in for review and receive a response, then finish with another 15-minute call to make a plan for your continuing life as a writer. Personal coaching will keep you on track and moving forward toward being the writer you want to be.



The Writer’s Welcome Kit is what every writer wishes they’d had when starting out.

  • Unlike writing books, the interactive Kit includes ten essential templates in Word and Excel to kickstart your writing life, plus 100 links to websites useful to writers.
  • Unlike in-person classes, you can complete the Kit on your own schedule from anywhere in the world.
