Word Magic Mentorship


Focused Practice for Writers

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

Bring your writing practice to life with ongoing guidance tailored to you. Shape your raw inspiration into powerful content.

Start by getting words on the page. Share what you want me to read—up to 15,000 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 as well.

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.

Katherine, Neuropsychologist

Amy thinks in words and images, which has broadened my perspective on my first book. Her enthusiasm, wit, and freakishly perceptive antennae make her a perfect fit for this role.

Bob, Writer

I’ve learned immeasurably from reading Amy’s work, from her comments on my work, and her remarks in class. Amy is an excellent teacher.

Candice, Guidance Counselor

Amy has a good heart for people. She knows when to push, when to back off, and when to change course. Her first priority is always what’s the best way to work with this person, and what’s going to help the most.
