Dive into your writing with a Writing Coach by your side.
TYPES OF WRITERS WHO NEED A WRITING COACH:
You just started writing, and you need help. A lot of it.
THE SECRET WRITER
You write but you don’t want anyone to know you write, let alone READ your work—that's what I'm here for.
THE “NEED A KICK IN THE BUTT-ER”
You’ve got a great idea for a story and you can write when you put your butt in the chair-—I’ll develop a writing plan for you with daily, weekly, and monthly Goals, along with specific writing assignments with DEADLINES.
THE NEXT STEPPER
Your work's finished. Congratulations. I’ll guide you through the query process. Together we’ll figure out what agents you should query and when. I’ll even assign specific writing assignments to fine tune your query or synopsis.
AND If you don’t know what a query is or how to write one, I can help you with that too.
SOCIAL MEDIA and SCHOOL VISIT GUIDANCE
I’ll help you figure out what your social media presence should be AND help build your social media presence OR help you figure out what social media is…
I’ll help prepare you for school visits and public speaking engagements whether for a conference, a workshop, or even your first critique group meeting.
Regardless of where you might be in your writing journey, it’s beneficial to have someone help you establish short and longterm goals, set deadlines, provide support, and at times, boot that writer’s block out of the stadium. I’m also that shoulder to cry on or the loud, obnoxious, face-painted fan on the sideline cheering you on
INVEST IN YOURSELF
Life is busy. Time is limited. But if writing is something you really want to do, you need to invest in yourself. You need to set up a writing schedule. You need deadlines. You need accountability, and I'm the person to guide you along that journey.
Make an investment in yourself. You’re worth it.
WHAT QUALIFIES ME AS A WRITING COACH?
PUBLISHED AUTHOR. By June 2017, I will have five books under my writing belt. I know a thing or two about setting writing goals, carving out writing time with a full-time work schedule and family, as well as working with deadlines and editors. I want to help you reach your goals!
ORGANIZER-a-HOLIC. Some people have a To Do List—I have a To Do folder filled with multiple notepads filled with To Do lists revolving around my current writing projects, my blogs, and my clients.
CATALYZER. My enthusiasm runneth over. I’ve experienced a tremendous amount of writing success and I want to share that writing success with all of you!!!
EDUCATOR/EXPERIENCED PUBLIC SPEAKER. I’ve spent years in the classroom as a high school English teacher, Writing Workshop Facilitator, Campaign Coordinator, and Public Speaker. I’m ready to share my knowledge with all of you.
ACTIVE BLOGGER. My blog, INK Sisters Write, shares the writing love one letter at a time. We explore writing craft, writing habits, children’s books, the submission process, writing contests, and just about every aspect of the writing process and journey.
SOCIAL MEDIA GEEK. I’ve developed a strong but manageable Twitter presence at @KimBriggsWrite, where I interact with industry professionals, other writers, book bloggers, and reading fans on a daily basis with often 10,000 views per day.
ACTION TAKER. I am the Co-Regional Advisor for Eastern PA SCBWI. I plan, coordinate, and facilitate several events through the year including annual conferences, agent/editor panels, and writing workshops.
WRITER LOVER: I love, Love, LOVE helping other writers find the success they deserve.
“Hans has Chewbacca. Bert has Ernie. Lucy has Ethel. You can have Kim! Kim's enthusiasm and zeal might be just the tools you need to cross over to the next level in your writing. She's encouraging and supportive and helped me so much when I needed a positive voice amidst my negative thoughts. Kim was a great coach and cheerleader for me when I needed her most.”
—Lori Nichols, author/illustrator of MAPLE & WILLOW picture book series and other illustrated titles
"I first met Kim at a multi-day workshop at Highlights Foundation. Kim greeted us every morning with her cheerful smile, ready to help us through the day's schedule. With humor and grace, she kept our group running on time and her presence was the reason the workshop ran so smoothly.”
—Lori Richmond, Author/Illustrator
“Kim Briggs has coordinated or facilitated several writing events I’ve attended. Professional. Courteous. Effective. And a fun lady to be around!”
—Wendy Greenley, Eastern PA SCBWI Member
