Coaching

Out of every chaotic moment, something creative can come.

It was cozy there

in the silence, words floating up from below.

And it made me want to try harder.
— Excerpt from 'The More'

In every creative endeavour something chaotic lives. Art is risky.

People create for lots of reasons, among them: to explore, witness, reject, praise, express, wrestle with, and make sense of themselves and their world. Writers and other artists generally do this alone.

This coaching, while not therapy, borders therapeutic conversations. I work with you to clarify what it is you want to say, and to direct you towards your unfolding material in a way that supports the process. The format is often a combination of online and in-person meetings. Single sessions can have powerful effect too. While my area is poetry, I also work with prose writers and visual artists. People engaged in all media are welcome.
