About Jamie Morris, Writing Coach

I directed Woodstream Writers for eleven years, co-created and co-presented The Next Level Weekend Craft Intensives, with award-winning YA author Joyce Sweeney, and mentored writing consultants at the Rollins College Writing Center. I’m an Amherst Writers & Artists writing workshop leader; a College Reading and Learning Association Master Level Writing Consultant; repeat presenter for the Florida Writers Association; a book writing coach; Rollins College Writing Program graduate; have taught creative writing at Seminole Community College and The Knowledge Shop; and co-wrote PLOTTING YOUR NOVEL WITH THE PLOT CLOCK.

I’ve also led writing groups and taught creative writing courses in my community, been featured in THE WRITER magazine, and mentored other writing coaches and instructors.



Some writers long for a starred Kirkus Review, a Newbery Medal, or an O. Henry Award. Me? I dream of seeing my name on your acknowledgements page. From the moment I facilitated my first writer’s group, I’ve been on a mission: to help other writers reach their goals. So far, so good!
