Manuela Williams


Advice, editing, & coaching for fiction writers who want to smash through their self doubt, write with confidence & get published.



My name is Manuela and, by day, I make a living writing and editing web content for businesses. By night, I’m a poet, through-and-through.

No matter what my day job is, my passion always goes back to the literary community. I want to tear down walls and welcome every writer in, no matter their background.

I know what it’s like to be discouraged by others. I know how it feels when someone refuses to teach you how to get your writing out into the world. Most of all, I know how crippling self-doubt can be, making it almost impossible to continue writing.

Well, guess what? I’m going to be your new writing BFF. And, yeah, I’m about to get out my pom-poms. 😉

Together, we’ll smash through your self-doubt and get you the necessary tools to make your writing kick-ass. By the time we’re done, you’ll be writing fearlessly. And the cherry on top of all that awesomeness? You’ll be well on your way to getting published!

Are you with me?

Story Diagnostic

Feeling a little blah about your story? Not sure if it’s the best it can possibly be? Let’s give it a little extra love with a complete story diagnostic. I go over things like plot, characterization, marketability, theme, and more.



Whether you’re just starting your writing journey, or stuck in a slump, I can work with you to identify any areas you might be struggling with and give you resources that will get you back on the right track. 




Manuela’s diagnostic style is encouraging and enthusiastic. She “meets me where I am” in the writing process, and takes an active interest in my personal writing goals.  She really is my writing BFF!
