DISCOVER YOUR VOICE
For the person who wants to write, but feels unsure or afraid
1:1 coaching for 3 months/14 weeks as we access your voice and find the story you want to write.
In those 14 weeks and 7 sessions we will cover and discuss, depending on your personal writing goals:
- Your desire to write and where it comes from
- Your personal values and interests
- Your writing goals
- Your writing struggles and your strengths
- The story you most want to write (even if you don’t know it yet!)
By the end you will have a good sense of what type of story you are meant to write, you will have boosted your confidence around writing your story and you will have a strong sense of your voice and a desire to use it!
Your investment (incl. VAT): €299 per month for 3 months. Possibility to be extended by another 3 months for the same price when you want to go even deeper!
EXPLORE YOUR IDEA
From story idea to novel outline
1:1 coaching for 3 months/14 weeks as we create a foundation for your book!
Do you have an idea for a book but you can’t figure out how to turn it into a novel?
Have an outline for your novel but is something not working?
Do you have another story or confidence issue that prevents you from writing?
If you answered any of these with YES then this package is for you!
During these three months you will go through my Story Exploration course with me by your side. You’ll get biweekly deadlines and virtual coaching sessions to get to the heart of the story you want to tell, but always tailored to your personal writing goals and needs. Therefore suitable for pantsers and plotters and everyone in between!
You will get assignments and exercises that I developed through my training with Author Accelerator and through my experience as a writer and coach which will unearth who you are as a writer, what matters to you in your life and in your writing, where you find your joy and fulfilment and most of all: get you ready to write your story!
Depending on your personal writing goals, by the end of these three months you will have:
- A clear understanding of yourself as a writer
- A deeper knowledge of the story you want to tell with your book
- How your personal story and values impact your book
- A firm grasp on who your protagonist is and what they want
- Clarity on the major events that will happen in your story
- A (short) outline for your book…
- …and the confidence to write it!
Plus an understanding that a book is an ever-evolving creative entity that will change and grow as you write it, and things are never set in stone until you send it out into the world!
Your investment (incl. VAT): €399 per month for 3 months. Possibility to be extended by another 3 months for the same price when you want to be even clearer on the novel you are about to write!

What I don’t offer:
- Teaching basic writing skills, such as formatting, grammar, tense, point of view, etc.
- Editorial services, such as formatting and spelling and grammar checks.
- Pitching packages.
- Any kind of promise of agent or publishing deals. My coaching is focused on personal growth as a writer; not on getting published (though it would be a wonderful outcome!).
Sandra has the perfect skill set for a creative writing coach. She has extensive knowledge and a background to know what she’s talking about, as a writer and a reader. A consultation with her made me feel revitalised and wanting to dive back into my story right away.Lisa Zaman, writer and artist
