left quote “A writing coach is so much more effective for me than taking a class. … I used to be embarrassed to admit that writing assignments took me forever to complete. I would agonize over a piece, knowing that once I put it out on the web or sent it to a client, my incompetence would be revealed. … With Rose as my writing coach, I’m finally able to put to paper articles that I’ve been writing in my head for months. She uses my work assignments to identify my writing issues and create assignments that get me moving in the right direction. Rose has helped me to organize my ideas and focus on one at a time. Using the ‘recipe’ that she designed just for me, I can complete articles quickly without being bogged down by unrelated ideas. … The combination of phone calls, e-mails and in-person meetings really helps me stay with the program and meet my deadlines.” — Karen Hyder, managing director, Kaleidoscope
