Writing Coaching

You are...

  • struggling with a draft and are getting worried it might never get finished.
  • still daydreaming about that book you've always wanted to write but don't know where or how to begin.
  • a blogger, but it feels like something is missing every time you hit "publish" on a post.
  • a business owner, but writing has never been your strong suit, and you can't seem to fit yourself into your brand.

I am...

Well, before I tell you who I am, I’d like to let you know who I’m not. I’m not a blog coach, so I’m not going to tell you how to blog, how to improve your blog, how to increase your page views, or how to skyrocket your Pinterest referrals. Whew, ok. Say that three times fast.

What I am going to do is help you write. A lot. Everything and anything (for the most part… gotta have some realistic expectations ;)). I’m a grammarian, a wordsmith, a big fan of varied syntax, and most of all, a firm believer in using the power of the written word to tell the story only you can tell.

Writing coaching is for you if:

  • you want to find your strong, unique voice and write your story. 
  • you love to write and want to improve your skills.
  • you want someone to help and encourage you along your writing path. 
  • you have tons of awesome ideas, but you struggle to translate them on paper (or online).
  • you're the DIY type: you don't want someone else to write your content, but you need help creating it.

I'll help you find your written voice.

Hi, I'm Alexa, and I help creatives of all kinds find their written voices, so they can tell their unique stories.

Writing is a part of who I am.

I've been at it since the fourth grade, and since 2011, I've authored numerous published articles, blog posts, and copy. You can trace my written voice to pieces I wrote when I was only 13. I want others to know what that— recognizing your work as uniquely yours— is like. Writing is an incredible tool that you can, and should, feel comfortable using to tell your story the way you want it to read. One rule to live by? Never underestimate the power of excellent grammar and a well-written piece. 

Ready to take the next step with me?

You can read up on my writing background here, but as your coach (I am not a copywriter), I'll teach you, one-on-one, the fundamentals of good writing. Together, we'll discover your brand voice as we work through any grammatical obstacles that stand in between you and your best content.

I'll guide you through your project (a blog post, a creative piece, website copy, a book draft— I'm flexible!) and help you uncover your unique voice so you can share the story only you can.

The below scope of work is included in the purchase of all coaching packages. Please note: At this time, my coaching services do not extend to formatting for SEO/keywords.

  • A complimentary consultation via email
    • You'll provide me with a brief writing sample that describes your writing experience, who you are, and what you do.
    • We'll establish your personal and/or professional writing goals and objectives.
    • We'll identify what might be holding you back as a writer and/or on certain projects.
  • Organizing and outlining your project(s)
  • Setting up writing goals and timelines 
  • Brainstorming content that's in line with your voice or brand and/or useful to your audience
  • Improving general writing and grammatical skills/addressing any insecurities 
  • Finding your written voice
  • Comprehensive feedback (two paragraphs minimum on overall piece plus in-piece edits/commentary)
