Vulnerably Authentic

Shana’s work with writers is innovative and effective. I know because she is my coach. I’ve read Halinka’s book and it is a perfect tool to assist us to become who we really are. Shana and her team are a group of REAL people who understand the real issues writers and wannabe writers have and they are supportive and more helpful than any coach or instructor I’ve ever had.

awsome stuff! ,
