Coaching Services

Ignite's coaching services are currently provided by Claire Sheridan while Anita Allen is on summer break. 

If you have questions, or if your project is a little different, please contact Claire to discuss your needs.

Developmental Story Coaching

Each week, you submit ~500-words via email in either a Word document or Google doc.


Every other week, you get a one-on-one 45-minute coaching meeting, via Zoom.


The week following our coaching meeting, you’ll receive the prior two weeks 500 words (total of 1,000-words every two weeks), along with feedback and notes from the Zoom meeting.


By the end of the month, you’ll have 2,000-words reviewed in depth, along with new ideas for your future writing.


Fee is $349 per month (4 submissions and 2 Zoom meetings). 


*This offering starts and ends on your schedule; if you want to skip a week or only submit every other week, we’ll make it work.

Writer Accountability Coaching

Submit 500-words per week.


Receive written feedback in a Word or Google document. 


Again, by the end of our time together, you’ll have 2,000-words reviewed.


The fee is $229 per month (4 submissions). 


*We highly recommended you establish a pattern to get the most out of the accountability aspect of this offering. If you prefer to submit every two weeks, or establish your own alternative schedule (instead of weekly), that is an option. 

Coaching by the Hour

Need someone to listen to your story and brainstorm with? 

You know no two stories are the same. So, creativity coaching shouldn’t take a one-size-fits-all-cookie-cutter approach. If you’re looking for an experienced coach focused on helping you reaching your goals, let's chat.


This is your story, and I'm excited to help you tell it.

Coaching is a helpful tool if you’re looking to share your story idea and gain traction with concrete next steps.


I’ll provide specific feedback during our session and through follow-up notes after, which will help you progress on your work.


Whether you need encouragement or an accountability coach, let’s schedule a meeting and see if we're a fit for working together.


30-minute complementary consultation; US$115 per hour.

Get in Touch

If you're ready for the next step, please email:​

Please include the following about your project:


•    whether your piece is fiction or non-fiction

•    the topic or genre of the piece

•    approximate word count 

•    any deadlines you’re facing.

First, we'll set a time for an initial, complimentary zoom consultation to determine whether we're a good fit for working together.


Once we decide it’s a go, Claire will provide a copy of Ignite's Service Agreement with all the details of our working relationship.


After that’s done, once Ignite receives your retainer, it’s off to the races!
