Writing Coaching Rates

C.J. HaydenIf my skills and experience would be a good match for the help you need with your writing project, I would be honored to work with you one-on-one. I work with my clients for writing coaching over the phone or by video, so you can be located anywhere in the world. I offer both ongoing coaching and one-time or as-needed strategy sessions.

Writing Strategy Session ~ $225 per 60-minute one-on-one session by phone or video

When you’re seeking expert guidance to move your writing project forward, but don’t feel you need ongoing partnership at this time. Clients use interactive sessions like these to plot a strategy for blogging, writing articles, or authoring a book. Additional sessions can be scheduled as needed. This option doesn’t include editorial feedback, or email/voice mail exchanges in between sessions.

Ongoing Writing Coaching ~ $475 per month for two 60-minute one-on-one sessions by phone or video, plus editorial feedback on up to 2500 words of writing, and email/voice mail exchanges in between sessions

When you have a large writing project afoot, or a wide range of writing issues to address, and would like ongoing support. Clients enroll in ongoing coaching when they are working on a book, want to launch or improve a blog, or are seeking to improve their writing skills. Ongoing coaching will help you stay on track with your project.

In addition to our sessions, I’ll also provide you with editorial feedback on up to 2500 words of writing per month. This could include up to three blog posts or articles, or a segment of a longer work. A reasonable number of emails or quick phone calls in between sessions are welcome and included in this fee. A three-month commitment is recommended but not required.

Developmental Editing ~ priced by the project

When you’re seeking editorial feedback and guidance for a nonfiction writing project. Developmental editing goes beyond copyediting to address issues of vision, audience, themes/topics, content, structure, and tone. Prices are based on the type of project you have; for example:

  • Magazine article/long-form blog post – up to 2,500 words for $150
  • Blog launch/review – 3 pieces of up to 1,000 words each for $250
  • Book proposal – up to 12,500 words for $1,000
  • Ebook – 50,000 words for $2,500
  • Full-length book – 125,000 words for $5,000
