Writing Coach

Why work with a writing coach?

Working on a flash piece or grappling with the dreaded writer’s block? People engage with writing coaching for many different reasons.

My experience and skill as a flash writer and workshop facilitator mean I’m well equipped with resources and brimming with enthusiasm to help you.

Dettra, your workshop was incredibly well received.

A friend in town told me she hadn’t written a thing since her 20s, and went home and wrote a story that night.
