Kallista is great at giving feedback on a scene-by-scene level. She helped me see the minor issues I was having with my scenes and helped me brainstorm ideas to fix them. Her coaching is fantastic.

Jamie has provided much-needed insight into my writing's weak areas. It's amazing how a few minor changes can make a huge difference. I've enjoyed the experience and the knowledge I've gained will serve me well in the future.

Sue Hacking is a fantastic writing coach who will tackle the tough stuff I must face as an underdeveloped writer! She does not shy away from “I tip my head” when I read that! I felt embarrassed, as if I had done something wrong, but a millisecond later, I opened my hands, heart, and brain and wanted more of her expertise. (Please don't focus on my feelings—I'm a retired psychologist and love exploring my reaction to the world.)

I'm back to evaluating Sue Hacking as my writing coach. I needed to know a little more about her, so I purchased Take A Walk—Seattle, which she published from 1997 to 2017. Personally, I think we have a lot in common, as my parents are from Seattle. You most likely want me to stay professional rather than personal, but the personal is essential. Enuf.

This will address your question: How did it go with Sue Hacking? She can help me become a better writer. Over the next six months, I hired Sue to read and edit my essays. As a new, underdeveloped writer, this is a bold and courageous step for me, but it is essential. I expect to be revising and revising. I expect to get whacked around, but as Grace Paley said, it is so elegantly that being whacked once in a while is good for our souls. I know Sue will whack gently, as I've already experienced her whack and survived!

Please get in touch with me if you would like additional information.
Just Keep Writing, Anna Christine

I was so impressed with Kyle. He knew my manuscript in detail, remembering chapters and scenes as we discussed them. He gave me helpful feedback and ideas about filling in the structural holes. He was easy to speak with and very efficient. His thoughtful commentary and suggestions made me feel better and energized about my work and the rewrite ahead of me. I can't say enough nice things about him as a professional and as a person.

I was super impressed with so much that Joe could intuit regarding my story from the materials I submitted – his insight and guidance is invaluable. He combines depth with simplicity, not over-complicating the matters at hand. There's such an art to combining the creative/intuitive/generative aspects of drafting and the editorial/analytical aspects of writing/revising. I easily get lost on either end – too much unstructured pantsing and then too much over-analytical plotting. Joe's insight and warm encouragement are setting me up for success, and I am confident that I will write a solid working draft with the book plan we collaborated on.

Working with Kyle Cisco was absolutely the best. I highly regard his advice in making corrections to my manuscript to improve it. We talked about future endeavors, such as using him as my next editor for my final manuscript review and hiring him as my publicist. I am so excited about working with him in the near future. He is the go-to person I will seek out to get me where I need to be to become a successful published author.
