I've used almost every service Ruth offers in some capacity. She's professionally edited work I needed to turn into publishers, and she's helped me plug into a community of storytellers. She also has a great joy about the way she goes about life. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who wants to be a better writer or storyteller.

Ruth Buchanan is all you can ask for in a writing coach: seasoned and humble, tough and tender, affirming and challenging. From start to finish, it is evident that  Ruth is for you, the writer, and will do all she can to see you succeed. She combines theory, practical advice, and industry experience to make it happen. I thoroughly enjoyed my coaching experience with Ruth. If you’re looking for solid coaching (and cheerleading!), Ruth Buchanan is a writer’s best friend.
