One to one coaching

Practical, detailed advice

"Daniel was as good an editor as one could ever wish for. In fact, he went way over what I expected, suggesting small revisions and cuts, helping me organize my book... I don't know how he was able to give me so much time and attention, but he did, and I am grateful. Daniel has a good eye and a very good ear."

- Bill Buege, Author of Stumble Into A Lighted Room

I love talking to writers and teachers, one-on-one, helping them solve problems in their work.

With this particular package, we will talk twice a month, for up to an hour each time. I will give you advice for your projects, help you plan out a schedule of work, and, if you wish, hold you accountable to it.

I will give you lots of opportunities to give me feedback. I want this to be a fantastic learning experience for you: relevant, personal, supportive, and significant. I will work hard to tailor my advice to meet your goals.

PS Because I always seem to be too busy (like everyone else!), I only coach three or four people at a time. Therefore, if this sounds appealing, and this page is open for you to make a purchase, I suggest you go for it before someone else grabs the available slot. Whenever I am at maximum capacity, I take down the "enroll" button and replace it with a link to the waiting list.


We will speak by phone or via Skype.

You can cancel any time.

Daniel David Wallace is a writing coach, novelist, and editor.

Daniel recently completed a PhD in the craft of fiction. He spent those busy four years studying how to teach writers how to create better stories -- and with less stress.

Thousands of writers have signed up for his online courses on style, plotting, and finding one's voice. His novel-in-progress is represented by the literary agency Inkwell Management, and as the editor in chief of Burlesque Press, he has edited and published award-winning authors. With his brilliant wife, he created and co-hosted The Hands On Literary Festival, an annual conference in New Orleans for writers, readers, and scholars.

"Daniel is generous with the amount of feedback he offers. Even when leading a class with multiple participants, he gives each student individualized attention, and knows how to meet each work where it is: he’s keenly adept at searching for a story’s engine and suggesting ways to strengthen it. If you can take a class with him, do it! Your story or novel will benefit from the attention of such a sensitive, intelligent guide."
