Benefits of Coaching

Why work with a writing coach?

Writers often wonder when or if they should hire a writing coach. Think of my work as filling a gap in the publishing process as I support writers who hit a block of some kind or need specific input. You might encounter this need at any point in the writing journey.


Perhaps you've found support in a writing group or with a mentor, but now you need deep and focused support to reach a goal that they can't offer. Or you searched online and couldn't find answers to your questions. Or you're stuck.


If that's you, it could be time for a coach.


Need a plan to pursue publishing, improve your writing skills, craft a proposal, build your platform, launch a freelance writing business, or learn to submit to litmags? A coach can help you get where you want to go.

1

Speed up the timeline of your writing journey


One-on-one coaching in particular can address your specific needs, drawing from a wealth of knowledge and experience, speeding up your writing or publishing journey. 


2

Identify your struggles and strategize next steps


Coaches can ask questions—and help writers learn to ask themselves the right questions—to identify the key areas of struggle and form a plan to address those and move forward.

3

Get answers


You can spend a lot of time researching the internet in search of answers to writing questions, but coaches can supply answers efficiently so you can get busy doing the work.


4

Gain confidence


Thoughtful input from a coach who cares will build confidence in writers struggling with an accurate understanding of their skills. A coach can help writers determine next steps based on the goals they've set for themselves.

Working with Ann Kroeker has been the single most valuable addition to my writing life. Not only are her courses packed with valuable information, but her heart for her clients and passion for helping them reach their writing goals shines through in everything she does. After working with Ann one-on-one, I had the skills and confidence I needed to clearly communicate my book idea through verbal and written communication with agents and publishers. I can't imagine going through the process of writing my book proposal and pitching without her!
