Got questions?

How does the relationship work?

Our work is very much in line with the writer-editor relationship of days past; your coach and editor is there for you to support you in all of the ways you need, whether it's with a new project you're still brainstorming and organizing to reading through pages and offering developmental feedback to putting their nose to the page and editing your manuscript into its best self. Whether you don't know what you need or you're zeroing in on a specific aspect of work, your coach and editor is there as a guide, accountability partner, and support system at every level of your process and work.

What you will come to find invaluable is the trust, connection, and the opportunity to be heard, valued, and supported as a creative and producer of ideas by someone who is both a professional writer and a seasoned writing coach and editor. Being supported in in this way makes the work you do— and your writing in general — far more rewarding and pleasurable. 

What happens after I buy my block of time?

After you've decided to plunge in, we'll reach out to welcome you with a client agreement and a short questionnaire to learn about your work and what type of support you need. We'll then get you set you up with the most appropriate coach and editor from our team in a secure private space on our editors' platform, so you can get to work!

How do I meet with my coach/editor?

We use a secure online app for client work. You and your editor will have a private team where you can chat 24/7, schedule meetings, and easily share files, websites, documents, and more. Everything is housed in one place, so you can always see all your work at a glance.

How does billing work?

We work hourly to give you the opportunity to determine how you wish to spend your time and budget. Our billing is measured in 5-minute increments, so you only pay for the time you use, whether it's with your coach and editor in meetings or when they're working with your manuscript. 

I need coaching AND editing; can I do both?

Absolutely. We well understand the elastic nature of writing and that coaching blends easily into editing and vice-versa. Our team are all trained coaches as well as editors so they can care for you- the writer- and for your work as a complete package.

What if I'm not sure what I need?

We work with writers of every level, background, and skill set. If you know you are craving support but aren't sure what that would look like, during your free initial consultation, we can discuss your writing, your goals, your process, and any other area that affects your work to come up with a personalized strategy that will support you in all the right areas and gets you moving in the most productive direction.

Your coach & editor will further refine your schedule and strategy with you and will be on hand for all of the steps involved to get you — and your writing — where you want to go.

Over the past three months [of the Write Your Novel in Four Months program] I have spoken with my writing mentor each week. This has been invaluable. One Lit is supporting me now, and I am thrilled to know that they will be there with me as I move into the next stages of revision and revision. 

My editor is encouraging and positive. She leaves my "writing voice" intact, while making excellent concrete suggestions for changes and greater clarity. I now have an idea of how to go about organizing my writing into three different collections, so that I can pursue publication in the future.

I have taken two workshops at One Lit Place, both of which I found supportive and inspiring. With Jenna’s gentle and expert guidance, I really feel I have grown as a writer.
