Write with Corinne
Your go-to expert when you’re yearning to write your life stories, but don’t know where to start.
Write to get good at life
I hear you!
Believe me, I know all the reasons to delay.
I’ve been writing ever since I learned how to write a sentence, and I know the feelings of doubt, insecurity, fear, and even anxiety that can come with thoughts of writing our stories. I also know the joy, pride and catharsis. I delight in inspiring people to take the jump (it doesn’t have to be a leap), try new things, look at parts of life with a different perspective and enjoy writing about them all.
Why you should write
When you learn with me, you get
Among other things, I have been a writer and editor professionally for over 20 cumulative years. That has included writing for newspapers, magazines and broadcast news organizations, businesses and NGOs as well as editing and coaching clients in writing. Clients have included MDs, lawyers and psychologists as well as Ph.D. candidates and retirees. I have a bachelor’s in magazine journalism and did my graduate work in linguistics. My love of writing has endured since I was eight when I wrote my first short story.
In addition to having studied and implemented different teaching and training programs over 7+ years, I am a certified instructor in the Guided Autobiography method (GAB) which is the result of 40+ years of research by Dr. James Birren (University of Southern California). It is a widely recognized method to document our life stories as well as to develop greater understanding and appreciation of self and others. I am also a certified Senior Learning Style Facilitator through Learning Identity / YourWay.
There are no two ways about it: writing can be hard and sometimes lonely. My self-study and group coaching classes, Writing Laps and the relationships we build provide an atmosphere of welcomed support. All have helped to create a willingness and desire to write life stories and to grow from them. The benefits I’ve experienced and witnessed are boundless, and I’m committed to doing whatever I can to pass on what I know and instill my passion for writing life stories in others like you.
