Coaching & Mentorship
with Sarah Selecky

Bring your writing to the next level.

There comes a point when you don’t want to take another workshop: you want someone by your side to help you bring your work to fruition. You already know you’re a writer, and you’re ready to do your best work.

You want to work with someone you trust and respect: someone with skill and insight who can hold you accountable to your goals, with compassion.

Working 1:1 with an experienced author is profoundly valuable for writers of all genres. My own writing coaches and mentors have been key to my success as an author.

I would be honoured to be your coach or mentor this year.


I have one coaching spot available.
All mentorship spots are currently filled.

Choose an option based on the phase you’re in.

I want to get out of my own way and find myself writing easily, without resistance.

I want you to read my work and give me intuitive editorial advice as I write my next draft.

Story Is a State of Mind Breakthrough

(Mindset Coaching + Hypnosis)

This option is for you if you’re currently struggling with impostor syndrome, resistance, or negative beliefs, and you want to break that pattern. I use Timeline Therapy, hypnotherapy, and other mindset coaching techniques to help you get out of your own way and write with more ease.

My coaching is outcome-focused and highly personalized. Our work together may include weekly or bi-weekly video calls, guided meditations, and writing exercises. It does not include craft instruction or editorial advice.

This is a major reset: you will replace your old writing habits with new, more efficient ones. Once you change your state of mind, you change your writing life for the better, for good. Your breakthrough may last 1-3 months, depending on your style and how you prefer to integrate the techniques.

“It was truly magical!”

“I signed up for Sarah’s Story Is a State of Mind Breakthrough because I wanted to find joy in my writing practice again. I also wanted to get back to work on my novel. After my breakthrough, I was amazed at how much my writing life had changed.

I’m more calm and peaceful. That feeling of, “I didn’t do enough writing today,” is gone. I‘m back at work on my novel and it feels wonderful. I just listened to my hypnosis, and it put the biggest smile on my face. I LOVE it. There are really no words to say how much I enjoyed my time with Sarah. It was truly magical and I’m so glad I made the decision to do this wonderful program with her!”

Nancy Sulaiman

“Transformative for my writing practice!”

Sarah Carter

“Working with Sarah has been truly transformative for my writing practice. In a broad sense, I no longer find my inner critic talking me out of showing up to the page to write. Sarah and I were able to clearly identify long-held limiting beliefs that held me back from believing in the validity and worth of my writing practice. Additionally, Sarah helped me figure out how to realistically plan and set goals for completing my book that are very specific to my own life rhythms. All of this work is allowing me now to approach writing both with curiosity and excitement but also steadiness and a newfound sense of ease. I truly cannot thank you enough for our time together!

(Private Thesis Advisor)

This option is for you if you’re currently looking for insight, intuition, critique, and thought partnership as you finish your book. My mentoring includes careful reading of your work as you write it, weekly calls with feedback, problem-solving, and editorial advice. If you ever get stuck in the middle of a story and you need to touch in, I’ll be there in your pocket, on Voxer.

I’ll be your writing partner for 14 weeks, supporting you in your process in the ways you need.

  • We’ll work closely together to generate or refine your short stories,  novel-in-progress, or other writing project. I will help you write your most stunning scenes as you shape your work into what it wants to be.

  • You’ll get my personalized feedback as you work on your project, and learn craft techniques by working through your own manuscript. 

  • This mentorship is designed  for those working on book-length projects, but it can be modified to match your particular needs. You can finish your book in this time we spend together — or reach whatever goal is right for you.

  • I’ll support your writing and your writing process for 14 weeks.

  • You have the opportunity to submit up to 20 new pages per week for feedback for a total of 160 pages, or a completed manuscript up to 350 pages.

  • Weekly calls with feedback, problem-solving, and editorial advice (either 30 min calls twice/week or a 1 hour call weekly).

  • Additional support with voice messages through Voxer as needed as you work through your project.

“I am forever changed as a writer.”

“Mentorship with Sarah made my writing more vivid, more tangible, more visceral, and embodied. And I feel like I am forever changed as a writer.

Sarah uses intuition as a tool to help you find your writing. Every time I interacted with Sarah, I was surprised by how supportive and delightful she is. And in that container of support, I really rediscovered my ability to listen to what my story had to tell me.

I can’t recommend working with Sarah enough. She’s an incredible human being. Those of us who get to work with her see that immediately. She is a unicorn.”

Kelly Anderson

“The mentorship showed me that I can write.”

Heidi Phillips

“What I appreciated most about the mentorship was your kindness and care when reviewing my work. It felt like my writing was being tended to, that you were tending to some deeper writerly wounds beyond just the mechanics or the craft of writing. Initially, I hesitated to apply, because I thought my writing had to be at a certain caliber, since you're a published author. But I trusted you weren't offering some quick fix scheme.

The mentorship showed me that I can write. Throughout, you met me where I was, and let things unfold organically. There were challenges, and I could meet them. And every challenge felt like a small win, which made me realize the importance of celebrating those moments.

Your approach, blending coaching and meditation, opened up so many possibilities. Writers of any genre could benefit from working with you, because you meet them where they are. You know how to teach craft, but being a writer is so much more than that. I loved your book suggestions, your assignments, and the natural evolution of our work together.

You're like a 'writer whisperer.' It was an honor having you as my mentor and teacher. Our mentorship was truly wonderful. Thank you for such a special time.”

Heidi Phillips, 2023
