Writing Coach 101: Saving Time, Money, and Your Sanity

Whether you are just starting out or have been writing for years, a writing coach can provide personalized feedback, accountability, and support to help you overcome challenges. From brainstorming to writers’ block, story arcs to character development, and worldbuilding to craft, a writing coach has your back. In this workshop, Laura will cover many ways coaching sessions can be a game-changer for your writing, productivity, and confidence. We’ll dive into different tools and techniques coaches use with clients and how they assist at different stages of your writing process. To help you achieve your goals, come see how an hour with a one-on-one writing coach can make all the difference.


By night, Laura is a dark fantasy maven; by day, an indie publishing, editing, and coaching rebel, honing manuscripts across genres. From fantasy and sci-fi to YA and character-driven fiction, she guides authors through narrative intricacies and motivational challenges. Drawing from a rich well of global experience living in Europe and South America, as well as working in the raw depths of criminal justice, education, and wilderness programs, she infuses her projects and her clients’ work with authenticity, intensity, and real-world grit. Writing as Mercy Hollow, she crafts tales that tug on your shadows. She delves into the gritty, urban underworld in her Legions of the Claimed series, laughs in the face of death in her YA novel Stalking Death and Other Ill-Advised Dating Techniques, and descends into a menagerie of haunting tales in various anthologies.
