About Us

Who We Are

Mid-Coast Writers Collaborative offers manuscript consultations, individualized writing coaching (for beginners as well as experienced authors), and small group workshops, along with guidance for graduate school application essays and MFA portfolio revisions. In addition, if you are looking to polish your résumé and cover letter, or to update and revise your CV, the Collaborative can provide the support you need to help prospective employers see the talents you have to offer. Currently, all our services are offered online.

Trained as a Writing Fellow through the City University of New York Graduate Center, the Collaborative’s Founder and Director Dr. Wendy Galgan brings to clients her more than 20 years of experience teaching creative writing, business communication, and composition courses at the college level, first in Brooklyn, New York and now in Standish, Maine. Over the years she has also worked one-on-one with numerous writers who were completing creative projects, entering the workforce or changing jobs, and applying to graduate programs. A published poet and academic author herself, she is also the founder and editor of Assisi: An Online Journal of Arts & Letters. All clients of Mid-Coast Writers Collaborative will work directly with Dr. Galgan. (For more information on Dr. Galgan, please visit her website at www.wendygalgan.com.)

How It Works

The first step is a free online video consultation, which will allow Dr. Galgan to understand what you hope to gain from working with the Collaborative and how she might guide your project in helpful and supportive ways. In addition, the consultation gives you the opportunity to decide whether Dr. Galgan is someone with whom you would like to work.

Once you decide to become a client of Mid-Coast Writers Collaborative, you and Dr. Galgan will determine how best she can support your writing goals. With flexible scheduling and varying service options, you will be provided with a personalized plan that meets your needs.
