“Could your writing career use more
vitality, creativity and forward momentum?”
I’ll bet you already know how to write well. You’ve read the books and taken the courses. You’ve published something. Perhaps you’ve hired a coach in the past.
But you’re NOT happy with your writing career. Perhaps you’re:
- struggling to finish a novel or non-fiction book proposal, and you keep getting sidetracked or stuck
- resenting your freelance writing business, and you are finally ready to take charge of your writing assignments, earnings and time — but you haven’t been able to do it on your own
- dealing with time-, project- or idea-overwhelm, and you need help to simplify your career goals, plan your writing projects and create a consistent, enjoyable writing practice
“I coach writers to finish their books, reclaim their passions and take charge of their writing lives, businesses and careers.”
My name is Marla Beck. Since 2005 I’ve been coaching copywriters, journalists, attorneys, entrepreneurs and other professionals to set and achieve their writing goals. I can help you, too.
As you and I work together, you’ll start standing up for the writing that matters most. You’ll get busy pursuing a writing goal that’s perfect for you. And you’ll follow through with your writing project until you complete it.
Along the way, you’ll also:
- reclaim your passion, creativity and personal power
- experience renewed vitality in virtually every area of your life
If you’re a smart, sensitive and talented writer — someone with a sense of humor or a drive to serve others — it’s likely you and I will work well together. The easiest way to get to know me is to grab a free copy of Fire in the Belly: The Key to Your Happy and Successful Writing Career. You can also scroll down to read about other writers’ experiences with my work.
Glad you’re here. Looking forward to helping you create a writing career you love.
“Every area of my life benefited from our work together.”
”I can’t imagine having finished this novel so quickly without her guidance.”

“It’s rare, as a writer, to collaborate with someone who understands both the delicacy of the imaginative process and the management tools needed to finish a work of art. Marla has been that collaborator for me. Her approach, combining the creative potential of relaxation and the efficiency of project management, offers a model of how to move one’s art upward and outward into the world. I can’t imagine having finished this novel so quickly, and so well, without her guidance.”

But one in particular stood out…”
