What Does A Writing Coach Do?

A writing coach guides you through your writing process, helping you generate, refine, organize, and develop your ideas. Working with a writing coach will also help you improve your writing.  

If you have an idea or experience and a passion for that idea or experience, then you can write a book!

Successful writers do not work in isolation but depend upon the expertise and feedback of writing coaches and editors to help them refine their work.
