Your Writers Work coaching session is an opportunity to chat one-on-one with an experienced writer. You can get valuable information and tips for launching your freelance career or growing your brand using the features you have access to through the site.
Your goals and questions will guide the session, so come prepared! Those who get the most out of their coaching session are those who come with well-considered questions and have done at least a little work on their portfolio. Keep in mind that those new to professional writing can fill their portfolio with mock-up samples written specifically for the purpose of showcasing your skills--you're not limited to previously published work!
Coaching sessions take place entirely over live chat, so you simply need to log into your account at your scheduled time, click the chat bubble in the bottom right corner, and let us know that you're ready to get started.
Please be aware that we are not set up for phone calls or video conferencing, but you will be speaking with an actual person--not a robot! Even if you don't consider yourself a fast typist, you'll be amazed how much ground you and your coach can cover, so long as you come prepared.
At the end of the session, your coach will upload a transcript of the conversation, so you won't need to take diligent notes. This is especially useful if your coach has links to extra resources to share with you! You'll be able to download the transcript right from the chat window.
When you schedule your session, you will be prompted to answer a few questions about your goals and expectations, as well as add a link to your Writers Work profile. Having that information ahead of time helps your coach to prepare, allowing you to get the most out of your session!
