Writing Coaching & Consulting

Please note that as of February 2021, my coaching slots are full. I’ll update this page when I have new client availability.

“Can I work with you forever?” — Assistant Professor of Communications 

Let’s discuss a particular project, or have regular meetings to enhance your writing productivity, joy, and momentum.

In addition to my editing experience, I’ve been a tenured professor and chair of a department. I’ve worked in academia for over 18 years. My service work included Rank & Tenure and many hiring committees. I continue to have an active scholarly agenda and therefore know a great deal about the research, writing, and publication process (in addition to indie publishing 11 novels). I’ve had plenty of experience navigating and supporting others navigate challenging institutional scenarios.

I’ve found that most academics begin this process with consulting about specific writing content challenges. We often move toward coaching as a more holistic approach to writing as a part of your larger scholarly (and regular) life. Those of us who don’t conform to dominant norms or have dominant identities in academia often experience a cumulative negative impact on our ability to trust ourselves. Coaching is a process of uncovering, trusting, and reasserting that voice.
