Author Coaching and Mentoring Program with June Diehl

This is a 3-month individualized mentoring program to guide authors through the process of finishing or polishing their target novel. We will schedule mutually convenient times to chat online and you will receive personal, private, specific feedback in writing. Limited enrollment for 6 students. Add your name to a waiting list if enrollment is full.


Unlimited access via email for brainstorming, coaching, specific questions and regular check-ins

Regular private online chats in the Savvy Authors chatroom, phone or Skype (schedule and time to be mutually agreed on)

Reviews of your notes, outline and full draft with feedback targeted to take you to the next step with your story, tailored to your current goals

A writing schedule to complete your draft or edits with prompts to remind you of deadlines and regular check-ins to help keep you on track

Mini-lessons, articles, resources and recommended reading as appropriate

Includes coaching on the pitch and the synopsis

A coach who listens, doesn't squash your writing style and who provides positive, constructive and helpful feedback to meet your goals

Note: Mentoring program does not include line by line editing or proofreading, although I may make word choice suggestions or point out repeated grammar errors. Full read/in depth critique/edit of the finished manuscript is negotiable for an additional fee.

This program is not a workshop or training class but those elements may be present at the discretion of the mentor based on the needs of the students. Students should be prepared to engage in regular discussion with the mentor in order to get the best out of this experience.
