as you wish

Wouldn’t  it  be  nice  if  there  was  a  manual  for  life?

… or a class, like the one you had to take in middle school when puberty loomed (gaad, wouldn’t that be awesome?) – but in this life, you’re on your own (yup, I just quoted Prince …) and when there’s so much to think about, so much to take into consideration, and so much hope, habit, and history to sort through in order to get yourself free and start showing up differently for your own life, it’s hard to know when to start.

And with your comfort zone so very comfortable, you might be wondering if you’ll ever be able to uncover, and then DO all the things you really want to do with your one wild and precious life.

But you can. I promise you. And I can help.

I’m Deb Cooperman, a writing evangelist, certified life coach, life-shaker-upper, and seeker. I’m committed to supporting women to write themselves free: to uncover, recover, and rediscover the whispers of their souls … all the stuff that got pushed to the side by the striving, responsibilities, and challenges of being a grown up, and all the should’s, gotta-dos, and “girls/women don’t do”s too. 

I’ll be your partner along the way. 

In over 15 years of doing this work – including my Living Out Loud writing workshops, and The Writer Babes program – I’ve helped women get free by unlocking the whispers in their souls, excising old hurts, releasing habits that no longer serve them, taming negative thoughts, gaining perspective, exercising their self-compassion muscles, and finding flow in work, relationships, health, and more.

Workshop participants have called it

sacred, liberating, powerful, transformative, and life-changing

The one thing it isn’t? It won’t be prescriptive.

The things I teach don’t translate to a”6 module course to your best life.” I can’t promise that if you do A, B, and C you’ll remake your life and tackle all the challenges you’re facing for the shiny, happy world of your dreams. 

Sorry. This work isn’t sweetness and light all the time. 

But it’s going to be TOTALLY worth it.

You’ll be better equipped to face the rest of your life with a renewed confidence, inspiration, and soul-full satisfaction. You’ll feel connected to your own internal compass, with a fuller emotional tank that’ll help you make yourself a priority. You’ll have new insight into what’s been missing in your life, clarity about what you can do to get more of what you want, a sense of resolve to let go of the things that have been weighing you down, and a different kind of hope about the possibilities ahead. 

You’ll begin to know what true personal freedom feels like. 

Join me …

Because it’s the work of your life.

Fancy a winter get-away?

Write Your Way Free

a writer babe retreat

March 28 – 31

On the last weekend in 2019, just when it feels like winter will never end in most of North America, I’ll be hosting my first long-weekend writing retreat in Charleston, South Carolina.

We’ll disconnect from our every day – our work, our families, the constant pinging of phone notifications – and write, witness, and support one another as we discover more of ourselves on the page, and begin to write our way free.

I’m so excited about the place where we’ll be staying; it’s a boutique B&B with 9 eclectic, uniquely decorated rooms (each with its own bath) spread out among four separate bungalows just steps from Folly Beach. A continental breakfast is provided by the inn, and we’ll have the use of a full kitchen in the main bungalow for snacks and lunches. For dinner, we can stay in and cook, or walk the one block to Folly’s main drag for a wide variety of great restaurants
