This mentorship is to help you develop your talents as a writer. As such, no two mentorships are alike. They are tailored to fit you! You and I will use some of your writing and going over it repeatedly to improve it but as we do, you won’t just be told how to change it, but how to see things for yourself. This isn’t about editing your story, this is about learning new skills and improving how your craft. Email me at to schedule your free evaluation or for gift certificates.

The fine print:

This is to help improve writing skills. This is not a marketing mentorship.

All mentorship is faith-based. Sarah's Christain faith is the center of her life and advice and standards will be derived from that faith

This is not an editing service. This is for story development and story improvement. For editing, I highly recommend Kelsey Bryant.

Payment is due 3 days before the first mentorship meeting, but after evaluation, there are no refunds.

All payments are to be made through Pay-Pal

Each plan comes with a limited amount of rescheduling for free. If requests to reschedule exceed that amount, there’s a rescheduling fee of $5 per session.

If there is a family emergency or serious illness, at the degression of the mentor, that will prevent the author from continuing, it is possible to pause the lessons until a future date. This is not a refund, this is a grace period for which because of extreme circumstances, the author is allowed to pause lessons without a rescheduling fee. 

If Sarah needs to reschedule, this will not count against your reschedule budget. If Sarah has to reschedule more than one of your sessions on traveler level or two on the adventurer level, she will offer $10 credit on future services or 10,000 additional words critiqued.

Sarah reserves the right to refuse service without explanation.
