“Completion of my first book was made possible by Coachwrite. Jubal and Tara were so helpful, while they were being most patient with a beginner. Their knowledge of, and experience in, writing enables them to give professional assistance.” ~Lauch Magruder, Tulsa, OK

“My Artist Statements are very important to my artwork. With CoachWrite’s help, I was able to convey what my work is about. They listened to me and then wrote creatively what I really
wanted to say.” ~ Matthew Turlington, Artist-Owner, Penumbra Gallery & Studio, Sylva, NC.

“CoachWrite offers insights on flow, character development, beginnings, and endings. Their editorial perspective spots strengths, opportunities, and discontinuities that the writer doesn't see while self-editing. Through the fresh eyes of experienced readers, CoachWrite supports the new or experienced writer in accomplishing his or her goals of self expression.” ~J. Gail Livingston, Penrose, NC

“Tara has made writing my first book a delight.” ~Earle Rabb, Connestee, NC

“Tara is a joy to work with, so bright, patient and easy.” ~ Pegsie Payne, Highlands, NC
