Looking for one-on-one writing support?

Sometimes our writing journey brings us to moments when a little guidance would be helpful. Maybe you're completing a special project, overcoming a creative block, or want to strengthen a specific part of your writing. This fall, I'm offering 10 hours of one-on-one writing support for the price of nine. Good to use through 2018, in Grand Rapids or virtually.

Voices of writers...

"... bringing forth words that I did not know were ready and waiting, and inspiring me to take the energy from Monday's workshop into the rest of my week. This writing studio is a gem and I cannot wait to return."

"Emily introduced the Amherst Writers & Artists Method into my life and I realized why every other workshop had been so disappointing. It was because of Emily and the AWA Method that I learned to take back my dignity as a writer and value the way my stories speak."
