I've advanced to the next level as a coach in my business.
"My writing coach gave me tools to package my communication—like a framework to organize my ideas—and they're coming together and impacting my work. I've advanced to the next level as a coach in my business, and I've led trainings that had greater reach and brought in more business because of those skills."
Working with Ann Kroeker has been the single most valuable addition to my writing life.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
What is a writing coach?
A writing coach provides you with input and support designed to close the gap between where you are as a writer and where you want to be.
Coaches empower you to overcome hurdles, improve your craft, navigate publishing challenges, and develop a plan to reach your full potential.
I wrote a whole blog post about this! Click here to learn more.
How would I know if I'm ready for coaching?
People seek coaching for a lot of reasons. Some are worn out trying to navigate the path to publishing on their own. Others crave individualized input on their writing so they can improve faster. Still others want to develop their projects with support from a coach who has gotten results for others.
In the end, you probably sense when you're ready to take the next step. You'll know that it's time.
Are you ready now? Fill this out so I can get to know more about you and your writing struggles, questions, and goals.
What if I can't afford one-on-one coaching?
This is why I offer loads of options! I have a podcast and blog with years of writing tips and tricks to digest. I also offer courses at various price points. To see all my offerings, both free and paid, check out my Everything page.
If you would like to get an idea of my coaching personality but you aren't ready for one-on-one input, start with my group coaching membership, Your Platform Matters (YPM). After all, every writer wants to reach more readers, right?
Do you have a coaching specialty?
My career has included a wide range of writing pursuits, including publishing (I'm a former editor and a multi-published author), freelance writing, corporate writing—even award-winning poetry!
As a result, I don't narrow my offerings to a single specialty and have enjoyed coaching authors of nonfiction, memoirists, bloggers, essayists seeking publication in literary journals, novelists, writers in the professional space, and more.
