Personal Essay Coaching

“I’m supposed to write something about myself but I don’t know what to say.”

“They won’t think what I write is interesting.”

“I have a lot to say but I don’t know how to organize it.”

“I hate writing about myself!”

I am honored to offer my help to you if you are writing a personal essay—whether for your own artistic expression, for a college application, or for some other assignment. As an editor and writing coach, I have worked with many writers, ranging from professional journalists to college-bound students. The results have included published articles and letters of acceptance from first choice colleges such as Emerson College and Dartmouth College.

My goal is to ensure that your original insights and your unique voice shine throughout your writing. I can help you figure out how to begin your writing process and how to organize your essay to give it the strongest possible impact.
