Erin helped me progress my writing career further in just a few short weeks than any of the previous months combined! She helped me get organized, execute my goals, and gain momentum to start polishing and publishing my work.

 

She was a wonderful coach and asset, giving me thorough and helpful advice, materials, and resources. My confidence in my own writing has doubled, and I feel ready for any future projects I may take on after this. I am excited for whoever gets her as a coach next!

—Iris Adams
