The 30-day challenge (writing coaching)

Find your confidence

Set and achieve your goals

Get feedback on your writing

When I give writing workshops at universities, I hear academic staff and students voice the same concerns about academic writing:

  • They struggle to get started with their paper.
  • They spend too many months (or years!) writing their manuscripts.
  • They are not confident in their writing skills.
  • They want feedback on their draft from a language expert.

Introducing the 30-day challenge

    In response to these concerns, I created this 30-day writing coaching program. It is perfect if you are writing an journal article (up to 10,000 words) and want support to get it done ASAP while learning the skills needed to write the next paper on your own.

    In this program you will:

    • create a timetable to get the writing done
    • finalise which data you will include in your manuscript
    • make a detailed document plan
    • write a draft journal article.

    During the 30 days, we will meet (online) four times, for one hour each week, so that I can guide you through the process. At the end of fourth week, you will submit your draft to me for a full edit. We will then have one final session where I return the edited document and give you feedback on your writing.

    During the month you will get unlimited email support from me.


    The price for this program is A$1000 (+GST for Australian residents).

    How to book

    If this programs sounds like just what you need, please get in touch to book a 15-minute call so that we can see if we’re a good fit. We can also use this time to identify a project that can be completed in the 30-day period. 

    If we both agree to proceed, I will send you a contract and the payment link.

    A 50% deposit must be made upon booking the first session and the remaining 50% is due 14 days later.

    I would recommend Malini wholeheartedly to anyone feeling stuck or despondent about their writing. She was able to quickly learn enough about an obscure topic to provide meaningful suggestions and was able to motivate me to progress to a successful outcome.

    As an native English speaker, I felt the ability to write should have come naturally. It can also be hard to have people read your work and provide critical feedback without taking it as a personal attack.

    Through working with Malini, I could get good critical feedback in a positive manner. I felt comfortable asking basic questions, such as how to use tenses or punctuation in a certain sentence, while also developing the broader story of my manuscript through improved planning strategies.
