Are you writing your memoir? Or dreaming about it? Wherever you are in the process, I can help.
I am a Martha Beck certified life coach and the author of 11 published books including an award-winning memoir. I worked as an in-house editor for five years, and I now teach in UBC’s creative writing program and coach and mentor people like you.
I work in a dual role, as coach and mentor. As a coach, I’ll help you dig deep; I'll help you define the scope of the story you want to tell. As a mentor, I’ll help you learn how to tell your story, and I’ll help you develop and maintain the discipline required to keep going all the way to the end.
We'll start with a discussion of the project as the you see it, and work our way to a clear, shared understanding of the project’s purpose and the themes/topics you want to explore. Next, we will develop a timeline and decide how we want to work together: what combination of telephone or Skype (or in person if you happen to be nearby) sessions and emailed notes would best serve the project.
If you wish, when the time is right, I will work with you to develop a plan for getting your book into print, and help you navigate the world of publishing.
Is this the year you write the book that has been languishing inside your head and heart for years? If so, and you’d like a little help, get in touch and we can schedule a complimentary 30-minute chat to see if we would be a good fit for each other.
- Maggie’s experience as an author and writing coach has given me the courage to finally write my memoir. Her guidance has helped me see more clearly how to structure my book, stay true to my purpose, and tell a story that will engage the reader. I know I couldn’t do this without her expertise and dedicated commitment to my project. Thank you, Maggie
