“I learned things that can help me become a better writer and a better journalist, as well as hard-earned advice about navigating the practical landmines of being a freelancer today. I prize every session I've taken with you. Thanks for your sharp observations and sincere encouragement”

--- Robert Lerose, New York based freelance writer

I love coaching! Working with adults is deeply satisfying, as writing --- deceptively! – can appear easy.

It isn’t.

Students have come to me for help from across the globe, from New Zealand, Romania, Singapore, Germany and many others, seeking direct, practical feedback on their ideas, their writing, their pitches, their book proposals and more.

Even when they’ve arrived with no prior journalism experience, I’ve coached them to publication in The Guardian, The New York Times, and other major outlets.

As a career journalist and author, as someone who’s been trained by some of the world’s toughest and smartest editors, I bring a frank, helpful eye and ear to my students’ needs and concerns. No matter their level of expertise or experience, I help them move forward.

I charge $250/hour, payable in advance via PayPal, with a one-hour minimum. I can answer a wide range of your concerns and questions, from career strategy to reading and offering helpful feedback on an essay or pitch. Whether you're just starting out, or -- like some of my clients -- are a multiply published journalist and/or author -- I'm happy to offer insight and practical guidance.

Details here.

"Thank you so much for our call today.  You did such a great job of giving me a specialized PR/publicity plan to gear up for my book release"

--- Crystal Duffy, Houston, memoirist


"If you're still hesitating about hiring Caitlin, Don't!  I'm new to the public relations world, so I wanted to learn PR strategies from a writer. Caitlin's class was definitely one of the smartest investments I could have made to grow my career.  In one hour, I learned from her more than I did in a six-month internship. She is the real deal!"

-- Cecilia Burgos, New York City


"Two things stuck with me..."I think this is what actual mentoring sounds like." And in the back of my mind I was turning over angles and dimensions of different stories, and getting excited to go back and apply stuff. And those are both very different responses from previous coaching sessions which left me confused and cranky about time wasted."

-- CHRISTA Miller, freelance writer
