WRITING—LIFE COACHING

DESIGNED BY ARCHETYPE

We provide writing–life coaching™ because we believe that your writing life is indivisible from the rest of your life.

Writing, regardless of the end goal, is one of life’s most epic journeys. It’s a saga, with many ups and downs. There are treasures to be found and dark days to get through. In working with our authors, we’ve discovered how archetypes, which are so fundamental to storytelling,
can be fundamentally helpful to the way we understand our storytellers.

Archetypes are universal, mythic characters that reside within the collective unconscious of people the world over. They are symbols designed to represent, at a fundamental level, the “types” of people that reside within us and who show themselves at different stages of our lives.

We use them to represent the different ways we can help you on your writing journey, designed with your writing—life needs in mind.

THE EXPLORER

You have a burning desire to write, but you feel like you’re falling at the first hurdle—what do you really have to say? Is it all that important? Surely it’s all been done before, and better. You’re stuck, but you know if you could just break through, you could have a writing life to be proud of.

You’re seeking creative freedom in your life, and freedom from within to create.

We’re going to tackle those internal blocks and find solutions to the practical challenges that have you feeling frustrated in your writing practice. We’ll work on mindset and personal growth as we explore and create a single writing project from scratch—a short story, a personal essay, a first chapter, or whatever calls to you—or develop up to two similar projects that you’ve already begun. It includes:

  • Four biweekly 1-hour writing–life sessions over two months;

  • Editors’ critique of up to ten pages per session, to be discussed in session;

  • Tailored assignments after every session;

  • Reading prescriptions: one book per month, sent to your door*;

  • Monthly resource, exercise, essay, or other freebie tailored to your needs, sent to your inbox.

You feel a change coming. You are a good writer, but you want to be a great writer—a more honest, insightful, and perceptive writer. You want to go deeper, and you understand that to achieve your best writing, you must gain clarity within yourself as well as on the page.

Trauma, personal blocks, inherited mythology; the baggage we carry around—the same stuff we often feel compelled to write about (and often write around)—can prevent us from achieving our dreams. But if we harness it, it can be the key to profound new results—we just have to face up to it, and take our story back.

You’re seeking alchemical growth in your writing life and beyond by honing your powers as a writer and thinker.

This package includes:

  • Eight biweekly writing—life sessions over four months;

  • Editors’ critique of up to ten pages per session, to be discussed in session;

  • Reading prescriptions: one book per month, sent to your door*;

  • Monthly resource, exercise, essay, or other freebie tailored to your needs, sent to your inbox.
