"I am trying to check my habits of seeing, to counter them for the sake of greater freshness. I am trying to be unfamiliar with what I'm doing." - John Cage


Coaching/Editing

Individual CoachingTake charge of your writing career, a book project, professional communications in your business, or your PhD dissertation by hiring a coach. A writing coach will help you develop tools for crafting prose and improve the effect of your writing while offering support and guidance as you work towards your writing goals.  I edit and coach for any creative and business writing projects: college application essays, book projects, blogs, dissertations, professional communications and website content. Call me to talk about your goals.


Develop tools for writing: One specialty of mine is coaching elementary and high school students in their writing skills. Whether they already excel and need more inspiring work than school can provide, or they struggle to enjoy writing and need extra attention to develop skills and joy for writing, they will improve through curiosity-provoking, skill-focused, customized coaching sessions:
  • A blog on family ancestral research
  • Poetry manuscript review
  • Wedding vows
  • A 5th grader's script for a Youtube video
  • Professional email communications improvement 
  • A memoir about living on an ashram
  • A novel about rehabilitation
Working with Karen on my book project has been an enriching and rewarding experience. She has guided and supported me in a positive and creative environment.  Karen has helped me take my creativity to the next level.  She is an awesome writing consultant/coach.In addition her blog workshop was great fun and inspiring. I recommend Tangled Roots Writing to anyone looking to enhance their writing life. - Priya 

I got accepted to the Squaw Valley Screenwriters' Workshop this summer. I can’t believe it! I couldn't have done it without your help and encouragement. Thanks for giving the writers in Truckee a place to work on their craft. – Sarah 
Karen Terrey conducts a class for SAT essay writing preparation that has helped my daughter tremendously. She now feels that she can walk in to that testing situation with more comfort and confidence. - John
