In this 90-minute strategy session, you’ll sit down with Dot and Dash author coaches, Erin Servais and Jacquelynn Lyon, to talk through all angles of your story idea. Then we can help you fill in the gaps and give you feedback so you can start the contest knowing you have an idea that works and all of the pieces you need to be successful and “win” the big contest this year.


Here are some things we can discuss:

character development: We’ll work with you to create dynamic characters that play well in the plot.


plot development: We’ll help you build a three-act structure with scenes that build upon each other to lead to a thrilling or heartfelt climax.


setting creation: Whether you need tips for worldbuilding for fantasy or sci-fi (and enjoy your FREE copy of our Worldbuilding Bible) or scene-setting for romance, mystery, or another genre, we can assist you in inventing a small town or entire universe that gives depth to your story and sets it apart.


the actual writing bit: Erin is a certified goal-setting coach. Let her show you methods and tricks to help you focus on your project and stick to your writing schedule. (Plus, you’ll get access to our Writing Accountability Group.)
