Girl Gone Global™ Coaching and Editing Services
“Alyssa was an absolute joy to work with!! She went above and beyond to help me perfect my piece. She deeply cared about making sure I understood all her line edits while offering valuable writing tips. Her dedication and unwavering belief in the power of my story encouraged me to pitch and ultimately land a spot in my dream publication.” -B.F., Los Angeles, CA, USA; L.A. Times and more.
“Alyssa, with great vision and clarity, puts her heart and soul into her clients work, and treats it as if she’s birthing her own words.” -B.B., New York, New York, USA; Salon and more.
“I’d never pitched as a freelancer before, and was nervous and overwhelmed on how to do so. Alyssa worked with me step-by-step through the process — such a valuable set of lessons! Really glad I was able to work with her and would recommend to anyone who has lots of ideas but isn’t sure how to get them out into the world.” –J. J., New York, NY, USA; Grok Nation, Atlas Obscura, and more.
“Your advice about structure was a huge help. It is a really strong personal essay now, with the added bonus of being funny. Also, being really strict about that ‘rule’ you taught me has helped a lot.” L.H., Boulder, Colorado, USA; Humor Writer and Performer
- As a teacher with fifteen years experience, with an M.S. Ed., a permanent professional license and MFA in Creative Non-Fiction accreditation from Sarah Lawrence College I am able to hone in quickly on the key areas where writers are holding themselves back and need support. As a yoga teacher and personal development coach I specialize in confidence and getting your work published and your dream accomplished.
- With over twelve years in the industry and a specialization in publishing your work (instead of keeping it in your journal), I run a group of over 50,000 professional writers and have a Rolodex of hundreds of editors and agents.
- Private coaching packages are highly personalized to fit the exact issues a client is facing.
- Editing services include the following types and are offered: developmental, line editing, read-throughs with feedback
BOOK DOULA: I can help you birth your beautiful baby book. I have been a teacher for fifteen years, and a professional writer and editor for twelve years. The combination of experiences makes me a passionate and compassionate coach for writing books, book proposals, query letters, articles, and essays. For authors, I created a top-secret Girl Gone Global™ template for a book proposal that is professional, thorough and has been reviewed by agents and editors. I also have a PITCHES THAT WORK template available for purchase.
HOW TO BE A TRAVEL WRITER: Perks include free trips, gear and hotels when traveling the world as a reviewer but not all outlets accept press trips. Publish your stories in top ten publications like Lonely Planet, Fodors and BBC.
HOW TO GO GLOBAL: For aspiring digital nomads, Girl Gone Global™ coaching will teach you how to travel or live abroad safely, even as a solo female and what key mistakes women make and how to change that! Alyssa has detailed guides to living abroad and coaches women on how to make that dream a reality.
HOW TO PUBLISH YOUR PIECE!: My mentor taught me how to publish my work, not just write it. Now, I teach my students the step-by-step process to get published! This means fiction, non-fiction, essay article or book.
I will be able to assess in the free call which strategy to suggest, and if you decide to become a coaching client, I will chart a course of action based on those areas.
Based in Boulder, CO and the globe, I have clients all over the world. Through technology, community and working together, everything is possible.
