what does a writing coach do?

Adds delicacy, nuance and flair to your writing. Cuts to the chase. Emboldens and empowers you to speak and write with authority and verve. Brings poetry to lighten business grey prose. Navigates the path to words as actions.

is coaching like an english lesson?

Absolutely not! This question usually comes from those who did not enjoy English at school. So be assured, you will find this a lot more fun! And you are in charge of the content and the direction of the session.

what’s with all the birds?

A linnet is a bird. An English bird, oft mentioned in poetry. See Yeats. And my business is called Wild Sky. Writers used to scratch their words out using sharpened feathers as pens. My friend and fellow coach, Sandra Falconer, (note the avian connection!) takes beautiful photos of birds and trees which she has generously offered to me for use on this site. Put it all together and you have a motif! Something you can also use in your writing, by the way.

How many sessions do i need?

The answer is totally up to you and your situation. One may be enough to confirm you are on the right path, or one may be enough to open up four new possibilities and create choices that need talking through. One may begin the process of writing a speech, the second may give you time to practise it in a safe environment.
