DRAFT LIKE A PRO
I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed to begin writing. That’s why I established a safe coaching environment to explore creatively expressing yourself.
DRAFT LIKE A PRO
I know what it's like to feel overwhelmed to begin writing. That's why I established a safe coaching environment to explore creatively expressing yourself. I gave up on writing for over 9 years because of judgement and criticism from a professional, and I never wanted to write again. I didn't face my fear until I was seeking an outlet for my creativity and writing gave me a safe place to explore. In pursuit of a dream, I found my writer's voice and won a scholarship in the process. That's when I began to feel confident in my writing ability again. As a writing coach, I'm here to make sure you can find confidence in your writing too. I believe every student can confidently tackle every writing opportunity in their future.
You can be at ease with the writing process, one step at a time.
Get the Ball Rolling
It all starts with a 1-hour coaching call. We’ll discuss your goals and how you feel about your current writing experience. I’ll review the major dos and don’ts of applications and give you writing prompts and structure to help get you started. We’ll agree on a deadline for your first draft.
Take the Plunge
All you have to do is put something down on paper to get started. You’ll use the prompts I have given you to begin your first draft. Initially, we’re not looking for perfection. We’re starting with substance.
Learn the Ropes
Once you have something on paper, we have a starting point. We’ll go through your story together, highlighting what’s great and what is uniquely you. Then we’ll work together to put your thoughts into a structure that will wow anyone who reads it.
Knock it Out of the Park
After we edit your essay together, you are ready for prime time. You will be amazed at how confident you feel to submit your work for review. And now you can approach any writing assignment with creative freedom and pride.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
I’ve coached hundreds of students, to confidently draft captivating narratives that will be heard and remembered. Here’s what students, just like you, have said after working with me.
“I was excited to keep working on my essay instead of feeling forced to do it.”
“Elizabeth's support and caring personality pushed me in new ways, and gave me the confidence and skills I needed to express myself.”
“My writing felt artificial, but how freeing and wonderful it felt to finally write a piece which I truly connected with and was proud of.”
“I was hesitant when it came to sharing my writing, but you created a safe environment...I am definitely a more confident writer.”
I quickly realized that it is difficult to get started writing...You have this dream of what you want to create, but it is like walking around a swimming pool and hesitating to jump in because the water is too cold.
