SWP offers coaching services as part of our Track 3 offering to authors who submit to SWP. However, you do not need to submit to She Writes Press to work with one of our coaches.

If you have been looking for a coach, please consider working with us. Start by taking a look at our coaches’ bios (by scrolling down to Developmental Editors & Coaches). If you see someone you want to work with, contact Managing Editor Krissa Lagos and let her know that you might be a candidate for coaching.

Your coaching relationship will start with a complimentary strategy session with your coach. After that, your coach will read your manuscript or whatever materials you want her to read for a reading fee of $60/hour. Your coach will then support you to complete, rework, or polish your manuscript. The direction your coaching takes will be determined by you and your coach as you work together.

Dahl-endorsementSWP coaching packages include four one-on-one coaching sessions, which are renewed as you progress in your relationship with your coach. The coaching package may include the reading of new material, but it does not include editing. All editing will be billed at an hourly rate of $60/hour. Your coaching sessions are as unique as you are, and our coaches are ready to help you shape, strengthen, or create. Whatever your needs or aspirations are (again, even if they don’t involve publishing on SWP), we will help get you to the finish line.
