New: Join my summer coaching program for writers

I’m taking a small cohort of writers throughout July using a unique combination of one-on-one and group coaching, accountability, co-writing & peer-support! 

In this unique program, I’ll help you clarify your goals and hold you accountable for meeting them. Every. Single. Week.  You’ll become part of a community of like-minded writers. You’ll push forward together but don’t burn out. 

Here’s what’s included:

  1. Hands-on coaching: A 30min one-on-one session with me at the start of July to bullet-proof your writing roadmap.
  2. Monday/Friday check-in: The group sets goals on Monday; you share your progress on Friday in our tracker (I’ll remind you!)
  3. Writing sprints: Facilitated writing every Monday morning (BST)

What happens in between the meetings? 

  • 24/7 Co-writing: Always open zoom cafe to write with your peers – you’ll never feel lonely or lose momentum!
  • Slack community: You’ll share your wins and challenges on our private slack channel. I hang out there as well, and you can DM me with questions or struggles!
  • Accountability team: I’ll pair you up with a small accountability team (if you like) to check in on each other daily. 

Book your place now (enrolment closes June 25).
