Writing Coaching

We offer personalized coaching for high school students seeking to advance their creative writing skills and build a writing portfolio

One-on-One Writing Coaching is for students who wish to deepen understanding and application of craft, hone voice, and produce polished writing. We work with students interested in creative writing genres of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and spoken word poetry. Coaches guide students to achieve their goals of building a writing portfolio, being published, entering literary competitions, and/or applying to selective writing programs. This is not a program for academic tutoring or one-off help on school assignments.


Our work at Polyphony Lit is rooted in the belief that developing young writers depends upon close, careful, and compassionate attention. Writing requires sustained effort and students benefit enormously from quality feedback and encouragement.  Our coaches are trusted experts who will support the student over time, advancing skills and also giving practical guidance about opportunities for teen writers.


We welcome all levels of students! During the school year, the effort might include weekly or monthly meetings and assignments, depending on the student’s schedule. During the summer or holidays, the pace can be more intense.
