Coaching Through NAMW, you can connect directly with our founder, Linda Joy Myers.

Her goal is to help you mine the creative process, and find that place where you drop into your true creative self and make a difference in the world. To stay focused and make real progress, you need three things:
1) Support in deciding what your story is about—themes & topics.
2) Feedback to develop your skills—story structure, scenes, dialogue, character development, tone, and voice.
3) Help with navigating writing & editing to publishing and marketing.
