Many of my clients have joined writing groups hoping to get helpful feedback, information on publishing, and accountability. Instead, they’ve been criticized harshly, given misinformation, and left feeling discouraged. Some have even contemplated giving up writing.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
After years of hearing about clients suffering through toxic, unhelpful critique group experiences, I decided to create something unique and different.
The Writing Goddesses group is a safe space where you can present your writing, share your questions, and get help for your writing challenges.
Every week, you will have an opportunity to receive feedback on your work from Write Now! Coach Rochelle Melander and group members. We will also read and discuss a helpful book on writing. As needed, members will receive coaching around common challenges writers face such as finding time to write, overcoming writer’s block, and staying accountable.
As a master writing coach with 20 years’ experience, creator of the Write Now! Critique Group Program, and author of 10 traditionally published non-fiction books, I’m passionate about finished projects. Over the years, I have helped dozens of non-fiction writers finally organize, write, and sell their dream book project.
My clients are smart, proactive professionals who know the value of thought leadership to increase their status, visibility and income in their field of practice. They’re not afraid to devote valuable time daily to writing their blog, boosting their profile, or working on their large-scale book project. But they struggle to get started, organize their work, or keep up the momentum amid their busy lives. As professionals themselves, they also know the real value of hiring a professional to help them reach their goals.
The Write Now! Coach Writing Goddesses Group is my answer to the overwhelm, confusion and false starts that plague so many writers. Accountability is one of the most powerful ways writers achieve their goals. With the group, you’ll have a real-life guide to advise you as you write. Plus, all the camaraderie of new friends on the very same journey.
But don’t take my word for it. Here’s what my former students have to say about my coaching:
One of the highlights of my summer was participating in Rochelle Melander’s Write Now! Coach Critique Group. The group gave excellent positive feedback, great suggestions when I got stuck, and made the writing process less lonely. Rochelle always brought encouraging words of wisdom to us as we began our group sessions, and I learned about the writing and publishing process. Whether you are a beginning writer or a published author, the group provides a supportive community and opportunities to grow as a writer and polish your craft. I have already signed up for the next group! Thanks Rochelle for this opportunity.

Rochelle helped me clarify my goals and eliminate extraneous concerns and distractions that had become obstacles as I began my book. She is generous with her time and advice and is an enthusiastic coach!

Rochelle’s group coaching session helped me clearly articulate my writing goals for the summer, and how I would achieve them. Her diagnostic questions were valuable as they helped me sort out difficulties I was having with writing.
