What is it & why does it matter?

During our program, we will discuss and problem-solve issues of calling for writers. 

Calling struggles are mindset and purpose issues that hinder our ability to joyfully and confidently engage in stewarding our gifts for God's glory, for our delight, and for the love of others.

  • Do you question your qualifications?
  • Do you struggle with guilt when making time to write?
  • Do you wonder if your work matters?
I'm ready! Give me the details.



Where did it go & how can I build it back?

Consistency struggles are focus and balance issues that hinder us from implementing effective routines and rhythms of work and rest.

  • Do you struggle to create and maintain a routine?
  • When working, do you wrestle with distraction and lack of focus?
  • Can you recognize when to push through and when to rest?
I'm ready! Give me the details.

Meet your coach - Melissa N Smith!

For the past 4 years, I have partnered with hundreds of writers facilitating online group classes, meeting one-on-one with clients, and hosting a monthly in-person community group. 

As a certified writing coach, my passion is to see you confidently and joyfully steward your creativity, time, and talents. While I love to write and have published online and in magazines, my greatest joy is collaborating with you.

I look forward to linking arms with you for 6 weeks as we work together to make progress toward your writing dreams.


Yes, let's partner up!

What customers are saying about your coach, Melissa N Smith...

“Melissa values creativity and working with her reminded me of the reasons I love to write stories. I left our sessions with a clear action plan and the motivation to get to work. If you want a cheerleader, look no further than Melissa Smith.

Sharon Hughson

After the first coaching session with Melissa, it was clear how impactful she would be for my writing.  Melissa’s talent, skill, and insight challenged and stretched me to consider things that I never would have on my own. With a listening ear and a creative mind, she is always able to provide direction and motivation for the next step I need to take to accomplish my goals.

Tonya Avant

"“Melissa asked me the questions I didn’t know how to ask myself. She dug into the “why” behind what I was doing, so that I could take practical and productive steps forward in my writing.
