Are you suffering from:

  • Writer’s block?
  • Organization challenges?
  • Procrastination?
  • Linguistic distress?

It’s time to call in a writing coach who can incubate your writing talent and your project!

Writing coach and two-time New York Times bestselling writer Linden Gross draws on her background in editing, writing and teaching when working with others. Twenty-five years of journalism experience and personal accessibility help her elicit content that is lacking, while her talent for—and love of—organization helps her give projects the structure they need. Finally, using her writing and line editing experience, she teaches you how to refine your prose.

People often assume that hiring a writing coach implies that they’re incapable of writing on their own and need hand-holding. That may be true, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But a writing coach relationship extends way beyond encouraging aspiring or veteran writers, holding them accountable or even teaching them about the craft of writing. It’s like having a partner on your creative team who has managed to retain the perspective that can so easily be lost when immersed in a big project. Writers are in the trees by definition. A writing coach still has a sense of the forest as a whole.

Helping you retain—or regain—your perspective is just the start.

Linden’s approach to coaching involves helping you write your blog or your book (or article or thesis or corporate communication or film treatment or whatever else is on your plate). During the writing coaching relationship, she will:

  • Critique material you’ve already written and provide ongoing feedback on the growing pile of new pages or posts.
  • Help you organize your thoughts, enrich your work and find your voice.
  • Brainstorm ideas with you.
  •  Help you design a realistic schedule and hold you accountable to target goals and dates.
  • Provide writing tips to help you focus as you work.
  • Direct your rewrite(s)—a fact of life for every writer, no matter how experienced.
  • Guide you authors through the publishing (or self-publishing) maze, including helping you find the right market, and assisting with query letters, book proposals and marketing once your work gets published.
  • Help you bloggers assess your blog’s success and re-assess your approach as needed. Teach you to improve your writing.
  • Keep you motivated and focused.lg-and-dogs-in-lupine2-cr
  • Hold you accountable.
  • Make writing something you look forward to.

Note from Linden

To choose a writing coach who will work for you, you want to first find one who shares your vision. Second, look for a writing coach who fulfills your needs. Just as no two writers work the same way, writing coaches have different styles. Some writing coaches don’t even read what their clients write, which puzzles me to no end. That’s like writing about food you never taste. To get a sense of how I work, please visit lindengross.com/writingcoach.
