Coaching for Writers:
Helping New Writers Transform the Dream in their Heart into a Publishable Written Work.
Coaching for New Writers with Dr. Michelle Bengtson
Have you ever felt called to write a book but weren’t sure where to begin or how to organize it?
Do you have a book in your heart that’s waiting to be written, but don’t know how to navigate the exotic world of agents, publishers and proposals?
Do you desire to have your book published but don’t understand the advantages and drawbacks of the different publishing options?
Do you need help knowing how to craft your marketing material to present yourself professionally and appeal to both readers and publishers?
Do you need accountability to ensure that the words in your heart make their way onto the page?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you will benefit from working with Dr. Bengtson as your writing coach.
Dr. Bengtson delights in walking alongside other writers who have a dream in their heart but need help from someone just a little further along on the writing journey for help in crafting professional publishable written works. She tailors the coaching experience (pace, frequency, content) to the individual needs of her clients.
Coaching Options Include:
- Begin the process of writing a book
- Organize all the pieces of book writing
- Work with agents, publishers and book proposals
- Understand the differences between Self Publishing and Traditional Publishing
- Produce marketing material to present yourself professionally
- Gain accountability to move the words in your heart to the page
- Achieve confidence in the writing and publishing process with a game plan for how to reach their writing goals.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER AS A COACH AND MENTOR!
“I was completely over my head in my last endeavor and Dr. Michelle encouraged, exhorted, and refined my efforts! She treated me as a colleague despite my awkward initial efforts. I’m so grateful for her eagle eye, professionalism, and the hope she generated in me. She helped me believe in my abilities and gave me confidence while teaching me valuable information about the craft of writing as well as the publishing industry.“
