Incredible guidance and inspiring mentorship.
I will always take the road back to Kim’s door when I have writing blocks, editing challenges and a need to crack open my creativity.
Professional and heart-centered.
I would highly recommend collaborating with Open Roads.

Like many writers and creatives, you’ve likely felt a longingness and a calling to your art.
Maybe you’re a writer, a poet, an artist, a musician, or an actor?
And, maybe since childhood you’ve felt a longingness to create and make?
It’s time to respond to this longiness. That’s why you’re here.
Kim’s straight to the point and easy to understand guidance helped me finally define my audience, clarify a writing mission statement and define my goals.
Her prompting provided the momentum I needed to get my blog going. Since working with Open Roads, I have seen my confidence and belief in my writing abilities grow.
I would highly recommend working with Open Roads!

Creativity Coaching connects You with your art and passions. It provides the support and encouragement to take creative risks and master your medium.
Tackle self-limiting beliefs and inner critics, through Co-Active Coaching and IFS work.
In coaching sessions, get to know your vision, purpose, and set goals to help you get there.
To support your vision and progress, Creativity Coaching with Open Roads requires a six-month, 18 session commitment.

Each session is 30-45 minutes. You’ll meet three times each month, with self-assigned homework between sessions to support your growth and craft.
I felt solitary in my writing. So it was critical that I take my poetry to the next level if I want more of my poems to be published.
That’s where I found Kim. She became my writing coach for the 6 months during my “poetry season”
She taught me to think on a deeper level and gave me ideas to think about, asking probing questions to really got me to think and analyze the objective of my poem.
I learned how I’m willing to listen to constructive criticism, come up with ideas on my own and stick with it, be willing to take risks that I normally don’t take (like focusing on meter), and being dedicated to submitting even though I get many rejections.
She was helpful with recommending me with poets who are similar to my style.
I recommend having Kim as a writing coach because she has the experience in writing and publication. I approach my writing a little bit differently now. It goes beyond the surface and it’s ok to write a bunch of bad poems. I’m no longer writing alone.
