Paralyzed with an unfinished book?

Thrashing between too many story false starts?

Is it time to get real about writing?

You Need A Strong Guiding Hand!

More than once, I will ask you to do something very difficult.  Using my powerful exercises and other advanced techniques will free your imagination and release your inhibiting fears.

Welcome, Valued Author

I am Richard Clark.  My passions reveal me as a writer, lover of stories, and dedicated teacher.  I try to approach your worries with compassion for difficult topics and self-doubt.

I Help You Reclaim The Genuine Voice Of Your Story

I believe the sharing of our experiences in authentic stories creates a more beautiful and compassionate world.

Do You Want Personal Attention?

I provide personal consultation to authors in Seattle, and over Skype internationally.

What Happens In A Session?

Work that is heavy, deep, and real!

My part of it is listening for your needs as drawn out by careful questions that seek the essence of your novel.

Your part of it is being willing to do the hard work of self-examination in safe exercises, re-writes, or new work performed outside of the session.

You can be sure we will cover the fundamentals of writing: story, plot, setting, character, … as they empower you or thwart your achievements.

What Do You Get Out Of Our Sessions?

Renewed excitement!

You will feel genuinely validated for owning your passion in being an author of an authentic story.

During our sessions, you will build a list of achievable goals to lead to a successful book launch.  Together, we will shorten that list at an astonishing speed.

The product of our dialog and my exercises will construct secure boundaries and a safe space.  From there we will enlarge your comfort zone to reach out, embrace risk, and turn it into understandable trust.

What Do You Get Out Of Our Advanced Work Group Sessions?
