Shiny Objects for Writers


A Community for Creatives

This is for the courageous writer, ready to dive deep.

Bring your writing practice to life in this sanctuary space. Shape inklings into powerful work through patient cross-pollination with other creatives.

Start by getting words on the page. Share works in progress in small groups—up to you want me to read—up to 1,000 words over three months. We’ll mine your writing for gems, nurture your ongoing practice, and focus on craft. These small pieces make up a much bigger landscape that you’ll navigate over time.

Once you complete the initial three-month Word Magic Mentorship, you can choose to renew at your own pace for as long as it serves your work.

You’re called to that work for a reason—which we’ll explore.

Follow your true lines.

I provide straightforward guidance on writing, within a community of kindred spirits. I have no desire to fix your writing or interpret your story for you. I’d far prefer to show you what I see—so you grow as an artist.

  • Align your content and message.
  • Develop thematic imagery.
  • Polish your pacing and language.
  • Let your true voice shine.
  • Navigate your path.

I’ll always offer my honest impressions.

The story is always yours.

Read on for the details.


  • Coaching Calls

    Six conversations centered around your story and your best writing practice. Within this space, surprises emerge out of nowhere, and wisdom becomes clear. Afterwards, I’ll send a recording link or my follow-up notes.

  • Writing Review

    My detailed reading notes on up to 15,000 words over twelve weeks of mentorship.

  • Ongoing Guidance

    Running conversations via Voxer text and voice messages to share insights, support, and celebration. Let the synergies flow!
