If you're looking for a private mentor to help you hone your short story craft, 1-on-1 coaching is for you. A 3- or 6-month mentoring program with Blair Hurley, an accomplished short story author and teacher, could save you years of work and self doubt and put you on the fast track to (finally) launching your short story career.
Learn what's not working in your stories, what changes could make them better, and leave each session with actionable next steps to help you start publishing in literary magazines.
Over the course of 3 or 6 months you will meet with Blair every other week for a total of 6 or 12 sessions. Each session includes:
Blair Hurley is the author of THE DEVOTED, published by W.W. Norton, which was longlisted for The Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize. Her work is published or forthcoming in Paris Review Daily, Electric Literature, The Georgia Review, Ninth Letter, Guernica, West Branch, and elsewhere.
She received a 2018 Pushcart Prize and two Pushcart Prize nominations in 2019.
Blair received her A.B. from Princeton University and her M.F.A. from NYU. Today she teaches creative writing at Grubstreet, Catapult, and elsewhere.
She is the host of the Writerly Bites podcast.
"Blair is an absolutely wonderful instructor. She has an innate knack for turning a conversation into a moment to drop brilliant knowledge on the writing process. In short, Blair is truly brilliant.”
Once you purchase your coaching package, we'll email you within 2 business days to schedule the date and time of your first meeting, and to chat about any specific requirements or requests you have.
We'll request the first 4,000 words of your short story at least 5 days in advance of your meeting so that Blair can prepare.
At the time of your meeting, you and Blair will connect by video chat to dive right in!
You'll walk away from each session with excellent insight from an award-winning author about how to improve your craft, stay motivated, build creative confidence, publish your short stories, and build your author brand!
