your voice, your story, and your insights matter
Whether you’re new to nonfiction writing, writing a memoir or your life story, or preparing to publish your nonfiction work, our writing coaches and editors are here to provide you with the support you need.
Early Stage Ideation and Development
You have a story to tell, and you are ready to tell it. To begin, ramp up your writing muscles by brainstorming, learning, or getting early-stage guidance and direction from a personal writing coach to find the essence of your story- or spend a month warming up and prepping your writing muscles in our 31-day habit-forming creativity course.
4-Month Mentored Nonfiction Book Programs
When you’re ready to turn your story into a book-length memoir or narrative nonfiction or create a work of journalistic nonfiction, “ideas” nonfiction (such as Malcolm Gladwell’s work), a business or self-help/self-development book, or a research-based nonfiction book (academic hybrid), our Write Your Memoir in 4 Months and Write Your Business | Self-Development Book in 4 Months programs give you everything you need to complete your draft in 4 months.
Revising and Tightening
After you have the main ideas of your early draft underway, you’re ready to begin the revision process. Collaborate with your coach and editor first to get a comprehensive look at what you’ve created with a manuscript evaluation before beginning the editing process with a substantive or structural look at the developing work to make sure the story flows, is well paced, and transports your reader.
After your work is structurally sound, your editor will move on to looking at the draft at the line level. They’ll ensure each line is lyric, fluid, and flows as a cohesive unit. Then they’ll tighten the belt on your sentences so they’re clear, clean, and correct in the copy edit.
Pre- and Post-Publishing
In this last step, work with a professional writing coach to prepare your submission materials (book proposal, query, and cover letter) for traditional publishing.
Or, if you’re heading for self-publishing, we’re happy to format it for the online sales outlets or print-on-demand and help you upload it for print and e-book sales.
Lastly, once your book is on the shelf, we’re here to help with the marketing, website, and more to help you meet your readers –
