Next-Level Writers Small Group Coaching

Discover Your Next Steps to Level Up and Achieve Your Writing Goals

Writing Coach Ann Kroeker is pulling together 10-12 nonfiction writers looking for a five-week group coaching experience in a virtual setting.

This small group coaching experience will guide you through identifying the current stage of your writing life, discovering where you want to be, and forming the steps to level up.

Your group coaching experience is facilitated by an experienced coach who provides loads of guidance over the five weeks we meet.

But the beauty of group coaching is that you grow not only from five weeks of professional coaching but also from the collective wisdom you and your fellow group members bring to the discussion.

No matter where you’re at as a writer, you have something to offer and something to gain from this intimate community of writers—almost like a short-term mastermind. As each of us contributes to the group experience, everyone will develop confidence to undertake their own next steps for leveling up.

We’ll get to know each other, form connections, and have fun.

The small group coaching lasts five weeks:

Monday, April 29, 2019 through Friday, May 31, 2019


This course might be for you if...

  • you're bored and ready for a change

  • you’re confused about where to go next

  • you know where you want to go next but have no idea how to get there

  • you're stuck in a writing rut and can't see your way out

  • your goals seem so out of reach you're about to give up altogether

  • you're looking around at others and feel the next stage is unattainable compared with them

With input from writing coach Ann Kroeker and from others in the group, this small group coaching can help you figure out where you are and where to go next.

What to expect:

  • Training presented by Ann Kroeker, Writing Coach
  • Pre-recorded videos include action steps
  • Worksheets provide deeper reflection and planning
  • Weekly live meetings via Zoom (recordings available for those who can't make it).
  • Interaction in a secret Facebook group as we discuss ideas and questions
  • Using the technology of Teachable (online teaching platform), Zoom (virtual meeting app), and Facebook, you can be located anywhere you have reliable Internet access


  • Receive coaching input from Ann Kroeker at a lower cost than one-on-one coaching
  • Learn from fellow small group members
  • Gain guidance to level up your writing life
  • Determine a plan of action each week
  • Develop a long-range plan to continually take action like a next-level writer

What this small group training won't do:

  • Tell you exactly what to do—encouragement and training will help you decide what's best for your writing life but won't make the decisions for you
  • Guarantee wild success—small group coaching provides solid input you can apply to move deliberately toward your writing goals but unfortunately cannot guarantee results
  • Evaluate your writing—this small group coaching is designed to help you make plans for your writing life rather than evaluate or edit your writing samples or work in progress

Ann goes above and beyond with the training.

Group coaching with Ann Kroeker is the best investment I’ve made so far in my writing life. If you’ve followed Ann’s podcast or blog, you already know her seemingly-endless supply of helpful tips and resources for writers. In group coaching, she combines those resources with her delightful, thoughtful personality to provide a first-rate growth experience.

Ann amazed me with her dedication to meeting each of us where we were, giving encouragement that boosted our desire to grow, then coming alongside with her vast knowledge to give direction to our next steps. She was generous with her time, recording videos and posting links to answer our questions. The camaraderie and encouragement among the group members also spurred me on to grow as a writer. None of us wanted it to end!

If I were Cinderella, Ann Kroeker would be my fairy godmother. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Ann is an expert coach and a warm soul. And I think she might be a tiny bit magic.
