“Every writer I know has trouble writing,” Joseph Heller, the best-selling author of Catch 22, once observed.
Most professional writers would probably agree. Writing for a living can be both exhilarating and exasperating, particularly when deadlines loom and fussy clients must be satisfied.
Rutgers WPx – the Writing Extension Program at the School of Arts and Sciences in New Brunswick – offers a menu of one-on-one personal coaching options, both online and in person that can help writers defeat the demons that often plague them. Coaching can assist writers with focusing their thoughts, identifying problem areas, building critical skills, and even managing relationships with their clients.
Dan Spink, WPX director, said that individual coaching courses were added to WPx’s course selections about five years ago “when we realized the need for specific, real-world workplace training in our market.”
