Hi! I’m Nicole…


I help brave truth-tellers write unforgettable creative nonfiction.

I began writing CNF (also known as personal essays or short-form memoir) in 2014 when I took a course on the lyric essay.

By experimenting with form and structure, I began to unlock my most raw, vulnerable stories. Once I realized the secret to crafting powerful stories was an approach that allowed me to write past my fear, everything changed.

Now, I am a:

  • multi-award winning poet and essayist 
  • contributor of craft articles for Hippocampus magazine
  • memoir writing coach whose superpower is helping writers achieve their literary dreams faster than they thought possible.

In 2016 I won three creative nonfiction awards which helped me launch my career as a writer and writing coach. Since then, I have helped countless writers learn to craft compelling CNF and share their work with the world.

What I share in this guide will help you move past blocks, unlock your stories, and write with clarity and confidence.


“Nicole helped me build confidence as a writer, and to craft the first essays I have published.”

~ Heather Diamond, Author of Rabbit in the Moon: A Memoir
