Coaching, Editing, Publishing
Whether you have an unwritten dream, a half-written draft, or a full-length manuscript... coaching sessions with Alexa Johansen, Ph.D., will support you in refining and reaching your writing goals.
Coaching sessions serve as accountability checkpoints. Depending on your project, we may develop the narrative, sharpen themes, affirm strengths, identify gaps or weaknesses, workshop the writing, and set attainable goals.
Is your manuscript in need of a second pair of (professional) eyes? Alexa Johansen, Ph.D., offers professional editing services for any stage of any writing project!
Whether you're in need of fine-tuning proofreading, or in-depth developmental editing, Alexa is available to bring your writing to the next level.
Editing services are offered for all types of creative works (e.g., poetry, short stories, novels, memoirs, essays, children's books), academic works (e.g., essays, thesis projects, dissertations, presentations), and professional works (e.g., copy, reports, handbooks and manuals, marketing and/or training materials, public speaking, presentation slides).
