Mentoring and Coaching Packages

Dream Package

This is a package designed for people with a creative spark. (It's okay if you haven't sparked in a while.)

You know you have it in you. But somewhere along the way...it got lost. Well, it's time to find the magic, again. You hear it? That’s your creative pulse. All you have to do is listen. It needs a little structure. A heap of courage. And some direction to find its way.

You will work side-by-side with your Writing Coach to:

~ Get messy. Short writing assignments. Quick writing assignments. Easy writing assignments. (All roads lead to bigger things.)

~ Learn what nourishes your creativity. And what makes it wilt.

~ Explore your creative life story. (The easiest way to understand where and why your creative spark fizzled.)

~ Experiment with writing rituals. And practice them.

~ Get useful e-mail updates and even mail in your (real) mailbox. 

~ Learn to put words together that evoke emotions.

~ Receive a free spot in the yearly Writer's Workshop (online). 

-Receive a free e-copy of "More Than Matches: Igniting a Fire with Words."

How it works

This is a three-month relationship. You'll converse with your coach over the phone. Or Skype. Or in a coffee shop in the Okanagan (if you live in the area). Each session is 60-minutes, once a week.

Your coach will guide you back to the joy of writing. And explore processes, what's blocking you and how to keep moving forward.

You'll be assign manageable homework. And receive mail with exercises and encouragement.
