Writing Coach

 

Lola Jaye - Lola By Lola

As an author and qualified psychotherapist, my passions are motivating and writing. So now I get to incorporate these two elements by offering a range of services that just might interest those of you who want to write a book or are simply struggling with getting motivated.

The journey of idea to book can be long, arduous and full of self doubt.

Whether you have always wanted to write your life story, self publish or become a traditionally published author with one of the ‘Big Five’ – as a Writing Coach I’ll be on hand to provide consultation services on a regular basis, whether this be weekly, monthly, or as-needed. There’s so much to talk about too- the actual craft of writing, setting realistic and attainable goals, the ever evolving writing business, as well as motivational techniques to keep you writing. We can also discuss the best way to pitch to agents and how to get your manuscript ready for self –publication.

Services can include;

– Light Editing

– Manuscript Review

– Synopsis

– Story Construction

– Conflict

– The Hero’s Journey Plot (Character Archetypes)

– Characterisation

– Beginning, Middle & End

Prices

– Initial 25 minute Skype Consultation: $Free

– Hourly Video Consultation:  $60/hr (£55/hr)

– Ongoing evaluation of sample pages of novel/synopsis/outline: $3.00 (£2.50) a page*

Motivational Coach

I’m also a psychotherapist and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as well as a specialist mentor with an interest in motivational speaking. I can tackle a range of subjects- not just writing – and my speeches are designed to get you motivated and ready to unlock your potential, whether it be to write a book, or conquer your fears!  I can work with you individually, in a group or as part of a large audience. Let’s talk!

If you would like to book for yourself/college/charity/organisation, please contact me on motivate@lolajaye.com

School/College/Sixth Form/University Visits

I love speaking to students 15+ to talk about diversity in books and the importance of more than one story being told. I believe that young people- especially those from diverse backgrounds – can benefit from reading about characters who look like them and to know that their story matters.

 

Testimonials

Nicole Scott
I attended a workshop taught by Lola at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. Her class was great. She brought plenty of material, gave feedback on our writing, and gave examples of how to ignite our creativity. If you have an opportunity to take her classes it will be well worth it!

Sharolyn Banks Shealey
 Lola gives wonderful insight and breaks the writing process down, making it feel less intimidating.

I highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested!
