Clarity Intensives 

Dig Deep, Get Clear, & Focus Your Book Project 

Best for writers who want to make significant progress in a short period of time and are looking for a custom 1:1 coaching experience. Limited availability.

In this clarity intensive, we will strategize, investigate, and try on different ideas as we dig deep to uncover and clarify the one big story or one big idea you want to write about.

As your coach and creative collaborator, I will help you get clear on the key elements you need to write a memoir or nonfiction book that changes lives.

Doing this planning work first will save you tons of time‚ÄĒand frustration‚ÄĒin¬†your writing journey.

Get clear about:
  • Why you must write this book
  • What you have come to the page to say
  • Where your book fits in the marketplace
  • Who your ideal reader is
  • Which key scenes you must write first
  • When your story¬†begins‚ÄĒand when it ends
  • What publication path is right for you


  • Step 1: Work on the memoir or nonfiction blueprint workbook
  • Step¬†2: Written feedback + a half-day strategy session
  • Step¬†3: Revise your blueprint workbook
  • Step 4:¬†Written feedback + follow-up call to discuss feedback and create a next steps plan

A Clarity Intensive can also be used to plan revisions, develop pitch & publication plans, or strategize around other questions in the book writing journey.

What happens after a Clarity Intensive? Next steps for writers include working on their own, joining Write Yourself Out, my mentorship program for LGBTQ+ writers, or signing up for a book proposal intensive or a monthly 1:1 strategy & accountability package (limited availability).


Already Have a Draft?

Start with a Manuscript Audit | $750

For memoir and nonfiction writers with a completed manuscript. 

An evaluation of the first 50 pages of your manuscript + a review of a Mini Blueprint (a one-page summary of your book).

I summarize my findings in a brief editorial letter, and we discuss the feedback on a coaching call. You'll leave this coaching experience knowing what's working (and what's not) in your draft and knowing how to approach your revision.

Full manuscript evaluations are available for current or former clients only.
