Steve Adams

Writing Coach and Writer

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As a writing coach I’ve worked with published, award-winning novelists, short-fiction writers, and nonfiction writers; unpublished but dedicated and experienced writers; and those new to the game who have always believed they had something to say, but didn’t know quite how or where to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.

Pushcart Prize

I’m thrilled and honored that my memoir/creative nonfiction essay, “Touch,” which was published in the Spring 2012 issue of The Pinch, will be included in the 2014 Pushcart Prize Anthology. Thank you, The Pinch, for your support and belief. And thank you Memphis for the mojo.
