Writing Coaching

Got a half-finished book in your drawer? You may need a combination writing coach, cheerleader, accountability partner, editor, and publishing guide. Remember what Steve Jobs said, when he was about to ship the first, flawed Macintosh? “Real artists ship.” If you need help telling a story, whether a cost-free chat, a consulting session, a coach, or a co-writer, drop me a line. Also, check out the website for Sand Scribes, my new partnership with Tom Vater and Henry Roi, providing a range of coaching, editing, self-publishing, and marketing services for writers wanting complete solutions for their creative projects.

Ask about the 90-day Project Accelerator, starting with a free initial planning session to set your intentions and process, then weekly coaching sessions to review your work and keep you on track toward publication. It’s natural to feel overwhelmed or daunted by the creative process. We all need guidance on practical matters (editing, publishing, structure, finding our voice) and support to keep us on our path. Email me at briankgruber@gmail.com for a free coaching session or visit my Amazon page.

Reviews and Testimonials

"I worked with Brian to publish my poetry book, the Alchemy of Love. He was my Jiminy Cricket, supporting the flow of my work, along with marketing advice. He removed all limitations to realizing the finished product. Brian was with me for my first public reading; now I speak at festivals with ease. He is enthusiastic, realistic, finds solutions fast, he’s reliable, affordable, super-communicative, and funny. In Brian, I met an amazing human being; working together was a source of joy and immense pleasure." - Sophie F., France

"Brian Gruber is a smart, savvy, big-hearted human. His support and guidance is multi-faceted. He brings solid writing credentials and a brilliant marketing mind to the table; but what may be even more precious is his patience, compassion, and emotional support - the embodied advice that can only come from having "been there, done that" many times over. If you have a writing project that you want to get out of your head and onto the page, then I highly recommend getting in touch with this guy." - Wendy M., United States

"I consider myself an experienced writer in my native Russian language. Brian helped me immensely to shift into writing in English. Throughout our work together I have achieved a great improvement in aligning with the native flow of the language. He is supportive, wise, and flexible in terms of the structure of sessions and organization of work processes. He is able to provide this unique balance of participation and giving a space for self-expression, which is crucial for a writer while working with a coach and an editor." - Nena K., Russia

Through a series of coaching sessions and participation in his weekly writers group, I was able to give voice to experiences and emotions I was holding deep within. Brian is an empathetic and skilled coach and I recommend him to anyone wanting to heal through the art of creative expression.” - Chojin K., The Netherlands
“Brian is a brilliant writing coach. He is inspiring, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. I actually enjoy the ways Brian holds me accountable. He cares about the completion of my creative project, and is willing to dish out tough love when I need it; but he also cares about me as a person, and encourages me to find work/life/creativity balance. As a result, my writing comes from a joyful place, instead of one filled with heavy obligation.”- Katie Mae S., United States
