Get the help of a GOOD WRITING COACH.

Benefit by experienced assistance.

Get structure for getting your writing done and have the flexibility to choose your session times and frequency.

Coaching sessions can include review of new material, with feedback and discussion on our call.

Are You Considering a Book?

I offer creative solutions. As part of our one-to-one work together we’ll uncover your storyline (plot) and identify themes and key turning points to build your book around. If it’s a nonfiction book you have in mind, I can help you plan, prepare, and complete a quality book.

Do You Have a Memoir Planned or in Progress?

I help writers stay true to their goals for their book, reviewing chapters as they’re written. Writers learn to use a consistent, natural tone and receive feedback on craft, including character development, pacing, and use of scene and dialog.

Are you writing a book? I help with all aspects of book planning, including:

Focusing the topic

Choosing a fitting format: linear, framed, braided, associative, experimental.

→ Mapping the storyline

Identifying key theme(s) you’ll draw through the story

Are you writing other nonfiction?

Informational, self-help, and how-to books require a format appropriate to their topic.

→ Get help selecting the most effective format and creating the book outline

→ Get valuable feedback as the book develops chapter by chapter.

Suzanne Sherman is a thoughtful and perceptive writing coach.  She listens before she advises, carefully weighing her words for the maximum impact.  She takes your writing seriously, bringing her experience and knowledge to bear in reading your work for both content and style.  She is willing to “hash out” a tricky bit or help make a difficult choice in any phase of the creation of your narrative.  I credit Suzanne with helping me publish seven short memoir pieces in nine months.  Her help has been invaluable! — Marianna Marlowe
