A Little About What I Do

Hi. My name is Allison and I believe writing can change your life.

You are a really good writer. I know you don’t think of yourself that way, but it’s true. Everyday you write e-mails for work and texts to your friends; or you write note here and there to your spouse and you don’t think much of it. But here’s the deal. With virtually no effort, these tiny moments of communication come out so clear and empathetic and strong.

It’s like a little bit of you comes through in your words.

A little bit of you does come through in your words. Writing is just that powerful. Words give life to things that never existed before. Words can literally shape realities.

If you really believed that, you would write more often.

It’s not that I want you to be exactly like me, writing books and articles, necessarily. I don’t think everyone needs to write for a living. I don’t even think everyone needs to make money for their writing. But I do think everyone can benefit from writing.

And I think the world is missing out because you don’t write as often as you should.

You are so smart. So wise. You have so much to say.

With that said, I want to help you become a better writer—whatever that looks like for you.

  • If you don’t write very often, but wish you did, I want to help you write more consistently and with more intention.
  • If you you already do write fairly often, but want to write more clearly or profoundly, I want to help you push your writing to the next level.
  • And if you desire to complete a project or be published in any form, I’m here to equip you with the tools you need to make that dream a reality.

I can help you in one of the following four ways.

1. FREE copy of my eBooks.

This is a good way to get to know me a little bit and what I’m about. That’s why I want to offer you copies of each book for free as a thank you for subscribing.

The Chase

Several years ago I quit my full-time job, sold pretty much everything I owned, packed my bags and spent almost a year traveling across the country in an attempt to meet my own writing goals. This book includes a little bit more of that story and will help you discover how you can make more space in your life for writing.

Writing to Find Yourself

I wrote this rather long eBook while I was suffering from one of the greatest writer’s blocks of my life. Rather than resist the block, or try to get around the block, I wrote directly from the block and in the block and this is what came out. Sometimes writer’s block can actually signify something really important we need to say.

2. My online course, Find Your Writing Voice.

After many years of teaching and coaching writers, I realized there were a few things about writing I was saying over and over again. I discovered that before writers need tips and techniques about writing, they need to discover what sets them apart as a writer. They needed to uncover their voice.

You don’t invent a writing voice. You uncover it.

There is a brilliant writer inside of you, waiting to come out.

If you sense that about yourself too, or if you’ve had people urge you to write more often, but you feel uncertain or insecure about your skills as a writer, this would be a great place to jump in. We open registration four times each year. I would love to have you join us.

3. One-on-one coaching

For writers who have already completed the online course, and who are looking for a little more direct instruction, I offer one-to-one writing coaching via Skype. I recommend this level of involvement for anyone who is working on a specific project (a book, a blog, etc) and could use some support along the way.

I only take on two clients at a time, so submit your request as soon as you’re ready.

4. In-person, all-inclusive writing support

I do offer in-person writing support at all levels for writers who have already secured book contracts or who are looking to self-publish.

This is a much more hands-on approach.

I walk you through the book-writing process from beginning to end, and can provide as much or as little support as needed. From idea development, to developmental editing to ghostwriting, these packages start at $10k.
