My name is Steve Adams. I’m a writing coach and a writer.
As a writing coach I’ve worked with published, award-winning novelists, short-fiction writers, and nonfiction writers; unpublished but dedicated and experienced writers; and those new to the game who have always believed they had something to say, but didn’t know quite how or where to begin.
My many years of writing and analyzing a broad range of forms (fiction, essay, playwriting, screenwriting, poetry) give me structural insight into manuscript evaluation, and my study of, and in-depth exposure to, music, acting, dance, theater arts, and visual arts affords me a varying set of perspectives from which to approach the process of writing and the disciplines that support art. I find coaching writers a form of work almost as rewarding as writing itself.
Thanks so much for visiting. Please look around and see if I could be the person to help you bring your work to the page. If I’m not, I still encourage you to write. It’s such a privilege to live this life and have the opportunity to tell our stories. Don’t waste it. Tell yours.
I’ve found reading quotes from accomplished writers to be one of the best ways to learn about the craft and the life, as well as a means to feel connected to the larger writing community. From time to time I’ll be sharing below what I feel to be particularly compelling quotes, along with updates regarding my work.
