Shulem did a great job of thoughtfully and carefully connecting my ideas and experiences to the kind of structure that long-form writing requires. I’ve always written from inspiration, and he showed me how to anchor that inspiration in form and structure. If you are looking for a successful, experienced, intelligent, empathetic and disciplined coach, then Shulem is a great choice for you.
