Get your book done in a way that enlivens, rather than drains, you.

A one-on-one catalyst partnership for writers who are stuck, uninspired, completely over it, unsure where to take an idea, tired of grinding through, or frantically pushing to a deadline… 

The Partnership

"It's like all the best parts of being in a writing workshop, without MFA guy."

- D.P.

The Partnership is a one- or two-month-long container designed to launch you forward, complete with one-on-one video calls, email conversations, editorial support, and a big dose of care.

I’m your catalyst, here to help you bring your book into the world and reimagine your writing process so it’s robust enough to fit your life right now and flexible enough to sustain you for the long haul.

I see you, and I can help.

So good to find the spine of your concept and build a solid manuscript. So good to decide on a journal or conference to aim for, to match with an agent, or to land a book deal. 

But now:




It felt so good to finally start getting your ideas down in words. 

“All of my life is happening on top of itself. I want to write but I feel like I can’t make any progress or keep the thread of my own writing alive while I’m parenting and working and doing a million things from a tiny desk in the corner of my bedroom.”

“I’ve been working on this manuscript for three years and I’m so tired of it! It's due back to the publisher, but I can’t bring myself to care.”

“I used to think there’s a worthwhile idea in here somewhere but now I feel discouraged and paralyzed every time I sit down to write. The words won’t come. How do I get momentum back?”

“My deadline is in two weeks and there is no way this is getting done. There’s too much left to fix and I feel like I can’t even ‘see’ the book anymore.”

Hannah provided an extra burst of inspiration and energy to get me over the finish line. During each conversation she listened at once for the larger ideas and for small details, asking questions that gave me fresh insight into my work. Hannah listened, too, for the emotional aspects of the writing process, for the challenges and enthusiasm it brings, which meant she could give a deep level of support.

Like you trust yourself to persevere through both nitty-gritty writing issues and practical/logistical obstacles.
You’re equipped with the tools, plan, and self-awareness to make headway, even on the hard days (weeks, years) when distraction and overwhelm loom, and even when you have to work in tiny pockets of time.

Connected to and excited about your work. 
There’s nothing like the energy of a collaborative boost and some fresh perspective. I know your ideas are worth sharing! 

Seen and supported exactly where you are. 
Creative work is a cycle of generation and dormancy; both are essential. Every idea takes time to unfold. Slow work is valuable. And sometimes a trustworthy sounding board is exactly what you need to open a path into the next phase.

Like you can see—and have a plan to reach—the finish line of your book or article.
Instead of feeling terrified or overwhelmed, you know in your bones you’re going to get there.  

Through our work together, I want you to feel:

Stop trying to run on empty.

Give yourself the gift of a writing process that gets the work done and takes care of you at the same time.

The Partnership will unfold differently for everyone because it’s a collaborative process that meets you (and your writing) exactly where you are. No cookie cutters and no pre-made programs involved.

But here’s an overview of what’s in store and what’s included over the course of our month together:

How does it work, exactly?

Craving regularity and structure in your writing process but having trouble making that for yourself.

Unsure how to shape the connective tissue of your book or writing project.

Wishing you were less alone while you wrote.

Yearning to enjoy the writing process.

Eager to fall back in love with your book and the ideas in it.

Ready to have this thing done and dusted so you can move on with your life (or your next book)!

This partnership is for you—writer, academic, or artist—if you are:

First: a foundation session. We’ll talk in detail about your work and your process to find out what’s driving you onward and what’s holding you back. You’ll gain confidence and clarity about your approach and understand your own writing process better. 

Then: support on everything from reordering your introduction to acknowledging the secret fear that’s stopping your writing to tweaking your workspace for productivity. I’ll ask rigorous questions to help you discover fresh insights and ideas. And I’ll brainstorm alongside you, because there’s so much more energy and potential in a two-person collaboration. 

Summaries and recordings of each video call, including any relevant next steps.

Friendly waves, help keeping the thought-thread alive, productivity-boosting surprises, rigorous reminders, encouragement, stern talking-tos…whatever works for you. 

Response within 24 hours during business hours, Monday through Friday.

I edit nonfiction at every tier—big structural concerns to word choice to typos—so you can get clarity and ease at whatever level of detail you need right now.

Four one-on-one catalyst sessions over video (weekly or biweekly), for fresh confidence and clarity about your approach, new insights and ideas, and a whoosh of energy and potential.

Timely coaching via email, extending our conversations and helping you make steady, satisfying progress toward your writing goal. 

Detailed editorial attention on up to five pages per week, discussed during sessions, so you can get an experienced editorial eye on your snarliest knots.

The accountability support we shape together.

Tools to help you feel more physically comfortable when you sit down to write.

Full confidentiality and confidence in you and your work.

My real attention, interest, and care.

Get the powerful collaborative boost of in-depth weekly conversations plus the more frequent emails that help you stay on track and invigorated, so you can feel connected to and excited about your writing and move forward with confidence.

My trouble is and has always been with keeping a consistent practice to feel like I am staying in conversation with my own work. You were an excellent process partner. I think it’s because you are an expert listener, and because the questions you asked during our initial meeting clarified my writing process and my support needs so well.

I'd love to be your partner in an energized process.
Join me?

The tender new ideas you’ve felt too vulnerable sharing;

Building practices and processes that weave a comfy but secure hammock of support for your creative work;

What’s keeping Chapter Two from fitting with the rest of your manuscript;

How to keep writing in the face of distraction and overwhelm;

Writing while parenting;

Neck and shoulder stretches to banish the headaches slowing your work;

And so much more! 

We can discuss:

Thanks to interweaving careers as a professional dancer, massage therapist, creative collaborator, and editor, I love catalyzing the creative visions of writers and artists who are ready for an outside eye to launch them forward with both rigor and care. 

Who’s your partner?

Sometimes we just have to cope, hurt, or grind for a little while, and when you’re pushing for a deadline I’ll bring the laughter and the encouragement. But pushing through doesn’t work for the long haul of a creative life. So let’s build you something more sustainable. Let’s build a process that fits your life right now. And then let’s refill your creative well—and find the unique tools that help you do it—so you can write for the long haul without draining yourself over and over again.

And in our deep dive into your writing process we’ll sort through what makes things easeful, what gets in the way, and how remembering and caring for your body can nourish creative work. We’ll weave a fresh process that offers comfortable, stable support so you can actually make headway with your writing, even if you’re doing it in snatched pockets of time.
