Now that I am retired and have the time, I’ve been writing short story memoir, and working with Cathy has been sheer joy. She is supportive and encouraging, and after our meetings, I am ready and motivated to get back to writing. When I am not satisfied with my current story, Cathy can suggest a tweak here or there to make my words meaningful and true. She provides honest critique with heart and humor. Upon meeting Cathy, you can soon tell that her passion is writing and helping others find their voice. Cathy Rath is a fantastic writing coach and I highly recommend her.

Cathy has been coaching me for about a year now and has helped me focus on telling the story that I wanted to tell. I now have a fully fleshed out synopsis and the first draft of my novel. Cathy has been a constant source of encouragement during some dark hours of my writing. Without her I would have given up. I’m looking forward to our future sessions and can’t wait to see how the story evolves. I highly recommend her as a coach.

I cannot say enough about Cathy Rath and her ability to engage and inspire my child to write! With her warm and vibrant personality, Cathy has a way of connecting with each child, meeting them where they are, and then gently pushing them to stretch and develop their writing skills. Cathy has certainly built a strong and trusting relationship with my child and has helped him build confidence in his writing abilities and advance as a writer. I have seen significant improvement in our child’s ability to express his thoughts creatively and methodically. Cathy is an exceptional English teacher, writing coach and tutor. I recommend her wholeheartedly!
