Master Fiction Writing with Writing Coach, Emily Hanlon

What My Students Say About My Coaching

"I hired Emily Hanlon as a writing coach to help me complete my first novel. It was in its draft state when we met, and I needed her to help me figure out how to convey my complex storyline. From beginning to end, thanks to Emily's probing and meaningful insights, I experienced the joy of seeing myself evolve as a writer. I now have a completed novel that is far beyond my wildest expectations!"  ~ Jackie Bennett

"No one knows as well as Emily Hanlon how to access that deep and rich inner world where our best characters and stories live." ~Gabriella King

My two-pronged method of coaching: teaching craft and unleashing creative passion.

The Five Ingredients of the Scene is a method that I have developed over more than thirty years of coaching. This simple yet effective method takes the mystery out of creating characters and developing the story line. However, craft alone cannot unlock the mystery of writing. Unleashing your passion is the magic ingredient. Even when you think that your writing is worthless, creative passion will keep you writing!

Unleashing your creativity can be the most challenging aspect of our work together. It is also the most rewarding. Passion is the key, and I know how to unleash it in you. Developing the writer in you — whether you are a beginner, have been writing for a while, or have books published —is what I do best.

"Emily's peculiar genius is helping fiction writers to find, feed, wrestle and live with their demons or muses. Where do my stories and characters come from, how do they take shape in me, how can I allow and at the same times manage, their release onto the unfriendly, staring page? The angel, bright or dark, must be conjured before words can truly attach." ~ Kurt Blankmeyer
