Writing Coach

Steve FitzGerald is an Ohio-based writing coach, international award-winning ghostwriter and editor. Since 2010, he has helped members of the Island Writers Club (IslandWritersClub.com) "escape the rat race, identify their writing weaknesses and strengths, and focus on their goals."

In addition, he coaches individual writers privately on a regular-schedule or retreat basis. For certain writing projects, he travels cross-country and to Canada.

FitzGerald is past-president of the Society of Professional Journalists, Cleveland; and the Association of Railway Communicators, Washington D.C.; and founded the Friday the 13th Poets. He has taught and presented at the Allied Media Conference, The Lit, Western Reserve Writers Conference, and several colleges and universities.
