Write Your Book. Transform your life.
Dawn Montefusco, MFA, Transformational Writing Coach
You’ve got a book you've been thinking about writing, one that you've been trying to start and finish and for some reason you just can't get it done. You're in resistance and don't know why.
Perhaps you want to reinvigorate your passion for writing and create a consistent writing habit.
Maybe you've always wanted to live the life of a writer.
You have a calling to write and this calling just won't leave you alone. You know that if you could just write your book your life will change. You'll feel a sense of accomplishment and relief. You'll feel complete. Imagine the joy and sense of fulfillment you would have if you just finished that one damn book.
Being a writer in the 21st century is the best time time write! You can easily attract an audience, open up new opportunities and feel like you're finally living into the real you!
But here's the problem: when you sit down to write you get stuck, or you get scared, or distracted, or procrastinate.
Maybe you get overwhelmed trying to do it on your own, and you just wish you could find a way to have it flow out of you easily.
Sometimes you just wish someone would help you structure your book, teach you storytelling skills and support you step by step.
Or maybe you're afraid you will never have the time to write and you start thinking about whether it's worth your time and second guess yourself.
All in all you feel crappy because you're not writing and you don't know why. There was a time in your life when you loved the thought of writing and you'd give anything to feel a sense of freedom and joy while writing and being creative.
Hi I’m Dawn Montefusco and I believe passionately that if someone feels a call to write a book then the book has to be written.
It can be a memoir, a novel, a book of poetry, a book of essays, or a story you are yearning to tell. When you feel the urge to write you MUST do what it takes to make it happen. You risk your wellbeing and happiness by keeping your gifts trapped inside of you, and you risk holding back the impact you can make in the world.
There was a time not too long ago that I resisted the call to write and my entire spirit felt like it was dying inside. On the outside my life looked okay, great in fact, but on the inside things were meh. I realized I had lost my zest when I was not writing. The less I wrote, the worse I felt.
I took a chance in 2004 and I created a writing group in my home and my life changed. Once I committed to writing regularly for the joy of writing all kinds of things improved. My health improved, my business took off, and I found the relationship of my dreams. My internal world changed dramatically when I knew I was living into my purpose and it was reflected in the outer world. Now I help women all over the world step into their writing life and finish their dream books. They not only feel better, they are making a difference too.
But these women didn't do it alone. They got the guidance, inspiration and support to help them write their books with ease and joy.
My group is a transformational journey that changes lives.
I help women all over the world get back their writing dreams and share their gifts. The Create Your Dream Book group is a precious yearly program to me. I host two groups a year and I pour my heart and soul into it.
My background as a writer, teacher and transformational life coach has helped me hone my expertise to give you the best support possible in this one-of-a-kind program. I have a BA in writing from New York University and an MFA in creative writing from Eastern Washington University. I am also a certified Transformational Solutions Focused Life Coach from Erickson College. I’ve been coaching for over 11 years, teaching for over 29 years, and writing for 44 years.

I joined Dawn’s Create Your Dream Book Program because I wanted more than just a writing group. I needed to write my book and it was haunting me, but I never found the time and I realized I was not going to do this on my own. Dawn’s program turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Whenever resistance came in, I was able to keep writing! Dawn is an incredible source of support through both pep talks and honest truths. She is a resource of knowledge in the field, and teaches craft of storytelling, dialogue and memoir. I am so grateful that this course has given me the courage to become the writer I always wanted to be. I love the camaraderie of the group and learning all writers struggle with the same challenges. It has changed my life! I highly recommend her incredible course if you are ready to finally write your own book.

Dawn makes dreams come true! Dawn is a talented and passionate writing coach and a master at her craft and the best possible choice in my opinion to make my dream come true. She teaches with a great knowledge of expertise and uplifts you as she makes you reach and grow. It was during a webinar that I watched Dawn being interviewed and her passion, desire, and drive to reach those who wanted to write their story touched my heart. She was genuine in her belief that we all have a story, she offered a free phone consult, and I called. For anyone who, like me, was not encouraged to follow his or her dream of being an author, you need to call Dawn and chat! It was the most rewarding of my instincts to act upon and my story came alive under her guidance and I finished my book!
Liz Ann Phelps,
The overwhelming feeling that I should be able to write on my own was strong, yet I was stuck. The nagging sense that I shouldn't spend money on a coach would grow stronger when I would consider the prospect of a coach as a way out of my impasse. Half way through a phone consultation with Dawn, I knew those were excuses and self-sabotage and I eagerly took the plunge.
After hiring Dawn, my writing life took off! In every session with Dawn I learn something new about craft as well as about my own innate writing style and skills. Thanks to her guidance and expertise, I am moving toward completion of my book at a pace I never would have imagined. But, I'm also writing with more clarity and skill than I believed I was capable of.
Not only is Dawn a dream on the technical side, but her experience and wisdom regarding resistance to the creative process is vital for battling my own inner demons as they arise in an attempt to thwart my efforts. Since beginning my work with her, I have cultivated new and wonderful habits of writing that propel me closer to my dream.
I'd recommend Dawn Z. Montefusco to anyone looking to overcome their blocks to living the creative life they desire. Dawn is a Creative Doula, helping you birth your creative project!

Dawn personally helped me push through many writing and creative blocks. Without Dawn my current book projects would not be in the final stages, nor at the level of excellence that has become a result of her coaching and writing skills. I give Dawn my highest recommendation.
CEO, Life Coach, Author
I could not have finished my book without Dawn’s guidance as a writing and book coach. My fear of “not good enough” would have held me hostage forever. After working with Dawn for a few months I thought, “Wow, I think I am actually going to finish a book this summer. How amazing and sexy is that!!” And I did it! Dawn is not only one of the best life coaches I’ve worked with she also really knows how to tell a good story and helped me make my book compelling. Dawn will help you past resistance and into your creative genius!
I am grateful to have found Dawn as a coach, especially since this is my first experience working with a writing coach. She is knowledgeable in her field, and uses that knowledge to help me explore my own creative talents. In writing my book, she has encouraged me along the way to dig deeper into my story, and express it with skill and profoundness. She also has helped me take my poetry writings to a whole new level. When I work with Dawn, I look forward to her insight and support. Her coaching is truly a gift, and what I have learned will continue to help me in futures writing for years to come! I can’t recommend her highly enough!
