Insight + Alchemy Writing
Consultant & Editor
Intuitive. Knowledgeable. To the Point Effective with
Solid Craft & Process.
It’s time. Write your book. Write more freely. Adopt the mindset that keeps you writing & creating. And when you’re not, feel like the writer you are.
You have a story to tell. How you tell it is unique to you. Everything you need is already inside you.
As a Writer’s Consultant, I am your coach, mentor, and/or editor.
We find the ways that work for you. You gain clarity, and you write. You have accountability, feedback, and personal attention.
Are you ready to write your book?
Have you written something and wonder about it?
You’ve laid down words. Even lots of words. Now what?
Be Empowered. Tell Your Story.
“The shortest distance between two people is a story”
~ Patti Digh, author
I’m with you on your author’s journey, whether it’s coaching, mentoring, questions with craft and your writing, or editing. Seasoned or new to the page, you have inspiration and practical tools specific to you as support.
With deep listening and intuition, I’m beside you with fresh perspectives. More than a coach, I help you zero in on the story you’re telling, and how to make it your best. We get to the heart of what you want to say, and identify the spine of the work. Different than theme or arc or conflict, the spine is where most writers get snagged.
I believe our Voices are powerful, and we’re empowered when we tell our stories. . .the ones of our lives, the ones that fly by for us to tell, and the ones with our message. Your Voice is your Superpower.
Imagine feeling creative and supported.
Imagine feeling clear and focused. Imagine writing your best. Change happens in a series of shifts. Consider how easy the word shift feels. Imagine the shifts with your writing & creative life happening quickly. Imagine feeling confident, and having fun!
My background includes two decades of study in craft, process, and the publishing industry, + fields of wisdom and experience from a host of supportive holistic tools. I know all the ways writers get waylaid. Writers are not all alike. Find the ways that work for you.
There’s a certain magic that Heloise Jones has of meeting writers exactly where they are. I have watched her listen to our body language and discern the whisper of creativity in our in-breath; we have been nourished when Heloise delineated the intention behind our mental meanderings and then expertly guided us — individually and as a group — towards vistas previously un-imagined. And I have watched her take our ideas, infuse them with her wisdom and offer them back in ways that supported, elevated and improved us and our writing.

“Heloise is that rare animal, the writer’s editor. She brings the emotion and color of the soulful writer she is to her reading and analysis of your work. Heloise gave me spot-on feedback on point of view and character, and guided me to see where I was better served by scene versus description. Her fresh perspectives allowed me to dive back in
with renewed enthusiasm and inspiration.”
~ Lauri Maerov, author, NC
“Heloise is a Writer’s Therapist! After a short session with her, I wrote two essays and submitted them to contests the very next day. After two years of not submitting anything! 7 mos. later, I was published in a well-known national anthology, had my first online publication, and was a Writer’s Digest contest finalist. It was Heloise’s coaching and guidance that kept me going.”
~ Robin Jankiewicz, author, CA
“A thorough critique of your work by a writer with experience and knowledge of what makes writing work is invaluable. My experience with Heloise gave me connection and insight into my writing flaws and strengths. She has a keen eye and a clear way of communicating…that is encouraging and inspiring. Her feedback resonated and energized me so
I could easily fix what didn’t work and make my writing stronger.”
~ Mark Stewart, author, FL
“Heloise Jones is an incredible resource for writers. I met with her and received expert advice regarding my writing goals and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I highly recommend her for
help with your writing goals, whether process, craft, or career.”
~ Bria Burton, award winning author, FL
“Creativity — commitment to the creative spirit — is medicine.”
