Writing Coaching

Writing Coaching is for women seeking support and councel at any stage in their writing process or project.

Some of the biggest hurdles that women face when we begin to write are fear, getting started and a lack of structure. 

Free initial consultation

Sessions are available weekdays from 11:30 am – 7:30 pm PT

Welcome!

My name is Marn Norwich, and I specialize in coaching women writers. I have a 25-year background as a writer, editor, consultant and workshop facilitator, along with decades of experience as an intuitive energy therapist. 

It would be my great pleasure to work with you and support you wherever you are in your writing process!

If you feel stuck, I will be delighted to witness you overcome your blocks and write again.

In the process, I will love to see you gain self-understanding, grow confidence, adopt great writing habits, get inspired and learn techniques to keep you motivated.

If applicable, I will guide you toward healing through long-standing issues and support you to feel a greater sense of self-connection, calmness and grounding.

Along the way, I will help you to develop a strategy that works for your book or project and support you to organize your material.

For clients who choose, I will serve as an editor for your work as you develop it toward its potential.

My work is woman-centred, trauma-informed and non-hierarchical.
