My name is Anneliese Kamola. I am an author, editor, and writing coach living in Bellingham, Washington. I primarily work with writers—mostly memoirists and non-fiction writers—who have a message to share about the environment, women’s issues, social justice, political narrative, spirituality, and healing.
Throughout the process, I listen for what is ‘underneath,’ guiding writers deeper into their flow state—the slipstream of generative inspiration. From there, I coach writers to articulate what is ready to be shared.
I help authors in many parts of the creative process: finding access points into their material, holding them accountable for getting words on the page, restructuring and reorganizing the manuscript. On rare occasions, depending on my availability, I can copy edit or agree to ghostwrite for a storyteller who cannot write down his/her/their story on their own.
Please take a look at my Services & Costs page, and then use the form to Contact Me. We will begin our process with a conversation about your story, what your intentions are, where you are in the story, and where you want go. I am excited to travel along side you in your journey.
