Take a look at what we can do for you!


Coaching

A writing coach is more than just a teacher or editor. A coach is a partner who will walk along side you to help you meet your goals.

You have an idea that you love. Or maybe you just have a fuzzy notion of an idea, and that's okay too. It's not well developed yet, it’s a completed draft, or really only part of a draft. It's just a good idea that you don’t know how to start. We will develop your idea together. As we get to know you better, we will talk to you about your idea, coach you on how best to get started, and develop some ideas so you know where to go with your story. We will identify your specific weaknesses and help you turn them into strengths! With Firesong Arts, coaching is a personalized, individual experience tailored to you.

 

Here's some of what you get with coaching:

  • Individualized training and custom tools for writing
  • Help turning a fuzzy idea into a solid premise
  • Outlining a new, or partially completed book
  • Development of your characters and dialogue
  • Style, grammar, and formatting tips
  • Video, voice, and text chats live with your coach
  • and that's just for starters!

 

This process can include general and specific writing tips, places to look for inspiration, common storytelling techniques, and most importantly, specific feedback on your work in order to help you grow as a writer. We will be by your side for as long as you need us. Out only goal is to support you, encourage you, and help you complete your draft!


Editing

At Firesong Arts, editing is all about helping you tell your story the best way you can. We work with you to make your story resonate with your audience, flow naturally and easily from the page, and keep them coming back for more!

Once you have a completed draft, our editors will work on the story you’ve crafted to make it the best it can be. Editing itself happens in several stages as we work through layer by layer to uncover the true essence of your story and refine it into something amazing. This will include some development of your ideas, line editing for style and clarification, as well as any grammar and spelling editing needed to proof your final copy. This is the part that takes the longest, and many writers lose faith in the process before the end. Because of this lengthy journey, Firesong Arts brings you, the writer, in on the process as much as possible in order for you to maintain complete creative control of your work. We won’t stop editing until you’re satisfied with your book!

 

Here's some of what you get with editing:

  • Developmental overview to clarify themes, characters, or plots in your story
  • General "content sweep" to establish consistency
  • Line editing for style and structure
  • Proof reading for grammar and spelling
  • Detailed personalized notes on your strengths and weaknesses
  • Tips and tricks on the form and craft of writing
  • And so much more!
  •  

Make your manuscript shine with notes on content, structure, and proof. We are here to make your story shine. Let's get started!


Publishing

In the modern digital world we live in, it has never been easier for someone to independently publish their work. With so many e-book stores, e-readers, and online booksellers - not to mention blogs, forums, and websites - it's never been easier to join the literary elite as a published author. However, along with that freedom of availability comes the sometimes overwhelming sense of anxiety. How do I self-publish? Where should I sell my book? What format(s) will work best for me? Should I try to get an agent and publish traditionally?

Our agents at Firesong Arts are here to answer your questions. We know that realizing your publishing goals can be a daunting process, and we want to help demystify the process for you. Once you have a completed manuscript and are ready to publish, Firesong Arts will work with you to help you find publishing solutions that work for you.

 

Here's some of what you get with publishing support:

  • An explanation and overview of various publishing options
  • Tips and help building an author platform or website
  • Insight into Traditional vs Indie Publishing
  • E-book or print-ready formatting
  • Text layout, design, and styling
  • Referrals to outside resources for indie publishers (including agents and small-batch printers)
  • Marketing plan guidance
  • And more!

 

All formatting, text layout, and book design are included regardless of where you publish. Whether that’s finding and agent and seeking traditional publishing, self-publishing and finding a small-batch printer, or publishing online with an e-book, Firesong Arts will be there by your side to help you meet your goals.

We are here to demystify the business of writing, Let's get started!
