I believe that if you can crack writing via memoir; if you can fully explore the path toward writing the story of your memory, digging deeply enough to show your truth – the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ – then you’ll be equipped to write about anything.
Jon’s varied life experiences have brought him to a place of deep connection and understanding of human beings. Working with him is a life-enhancing experience and doesn’t feel like ‘work’ at all. He is consistently constructive and positive in his critique. His words ‘be fully expressed’ and ‘write fearlessly’ will stay with me for a long time. It is a joy to have him as a coach.
