I’m Deb McLeod, fiction writer, story editor, and creative writing coach. I’ve been coaching writers to write better novels, faster for over 17 years. There’s nothing more satisfying to me to hear a writer’s voice emerge from the connection between their lives and their writing.
Upmarket writing is writing that falls between literary and commercial fiction. My program offers the best strategies from both ends of the spectrum. The result is a good story with a strong plot, and one that tackles some of the deeper questions in life.
My genre writers are writing novels that stand out in their market. My literary writers are combining the commercial aspects of novel writing to have a more salable product.
It’s the best of both. And I offer a comprehensive fiction program that teaches the craft, how to fold writing into your life, how to develop your writing habit, and most importantly, how to find your voice in the material.
