Turn your talent for helping writers into a side hustle or a full-time job

There's a new job in the gig economy.

It's perfect for people who love to read, who love the challenge of capturing ideas on the page, and who feel they can inspire writers to do their best work.

It's called book coaching – and we're going to teach you everything you need to know to learn how to do it and build a book-coaching business.

To get you started, we’ve developed a 6-part email course. We’ll introduce you to book coaching, its history, and what it takes to be an effective coach, so you can decide if it’s the right career path for you. You’ll have the opportunity to learn firsthand what it’s like to be a book coach through videos, lessons, and assignments.

We’re so excited for you to start your book-coaching journey!
