Private Writing Guide

One-on-0ne Coaching

This writing program is for you if…

You’re seeking individual support as you deepen your writing practice or embark on a big writing project. As your writing guide, I work with you to break through whatever may be holding you back in your writing. I also provide technical support and developmental edits for authors who want to nurture their rough first draft writing into a polished second draft. We will explore the gems within your life experiences in order to develop what’s strong in your unique writing style. As our work together progresses, you will discover your ideal readers and your big WHY for this writing project and ultimately fall in love with your words. The support I provide is based on your specific requests and timelines.

What You’ll Learn:

One-on-one coaching includes:

  • 6 hours of coaching support for three months, or
  • 12 hours of coaching support for six months
If you’re interested in learning more about personalized coaching, please book a 30-minute Breakthrough Session with me so I can learn more about your writing project and goals.

Marie Maccagno, founder of Adventures in Writing.

I remember “writing stories” as a child before I knew how to form letters. Later in university, I completed an undergraduate English degree but was disappointed by the focus on dissecting other authors’ works and not on creative writing. Although I never let go of my writing aspirations, my priorities soon shifted to marriage, raising our children, and working outside the home.

I was 55 years old when I finally joined an intensive writing group designed to nurture creativity. I didn’t have much confidence.

It’s obvious to me now… that I have a very strong desire to express myself in writing. I still wanted to write no matter what I heard from the outside. If you’re reading this, I suspect that you do too. Take heart! I finally found my way into a supportive writing group where we were encouraged to take risks, a place where our words were received with care.
