Screenwriter, Creative Coach, and Consultant

Writer's Retreat * workshops * speaking

 

Hi there, I’m Michele Mathis. I use my background in Psychology and Screenwriting to help writers find their unique voice to create their best story.

Creative Coach: Find Your Voice

It’s so nice to meet you! I like to consider myself a free-spirited writer and a personal growth junkie. I want to help others achieve perspective and clarity about their writing process. I’ve learned through years of study, particularly Joseph Cambell’s work, a key scholarly view on screenwriting, that our creativity is connected to our intution. I love helping others connect to their intution in order to create original authentic works from a distinctive unique voice. 

Testimonials

I recently attended a workshop co-hosted by Michele and I have to say that I was very impressed. It was a great experience, I especially liked the creative writing. I didn’t know I had that kind of creative expression in me! I came away feeling amazing and wondering what else is possible for me. I would highly recommend Michele and her gifts. Lynn Ray

Michele helped me start a new approach to each day with tools to overcome my default method of living. Through our work together I found freedom and empowerment that colored my world with joy, since I no longer hold preexisting expectations and judgements over my life and others. Mary Baker

Michele’s creative coaching has been a Godsend to me.  I’ve made decisions and changed my life course – decisions I would not have made without her insight. She  helped me discover pieces of my story I had not seen. I’m filled with inspiration.   Jenny Barnes
