Ready, Set, Go!

Jump-start your writing with Charlie Varon

Do you...

...have an idea for a writing project but can't get started?

...have something you've started but are stuck on?

...have a piece you want to deepen and develop?

This is a 1-on-1 coaching package designed for people who are ready to commit to a writing process with structure, accountability and deadlines. Fiction or non-fiction, memoir, solo performance piece or monologue--any form of writing (except poetry!).

How to apply:

Email me a brief (<100 words) description of your project and your goal, and a 250-500 word sample of it. I'll let you know if your project is a good match for what I do and, if so, we'll set a schedule.

How it works: ​

  • We agree on a regular time slot (e.g. Thursdays 9-10am).

  • We meet every other week at that time for 1 hour (5 sessions total).

  • I coach you on process, give direction on your writing, and make specific suggestions for next steps.

  • Between meetings, you have the same deadline and we use the same process, except by email.

  • You have a weekly deadline of writing at least 1000 words.

  • Meetings are via Zoom (or, pandemic and geography willing, in person).

  • Take a look at a sample schedule.


Pricing, etc.

  • $1,500 via check or Paypal.

  • At the end of the 10 weeks, if you come to all 5 sessions with new writing, you'll get a 6th session free.

  • The fine print: The fee is non-refundable. Each session should be considered a firm commitment and can be rescheduled only with 24 hours notice.
