Mimi Seton has over a dozen press awards for writing and music composition.  She has been coaching performers and writers since 1980 and currently works with clients from 3 continents.  Her approach is gentle and supportive; she encourages people to enter a state of DEEP RELAXATION and TRUST before writing,  to invite the creative flow.  She also endorses taking sensual  PLEASURE in the artistic process, and releasing the tyranny of judging our work. We do apply our intellectual standards in the editing process AFTER the work is on the page -- not before! 

 

Working with Mimi is an enjoyable and healing experience designed to free the artist to birth her/his  "best work".

1)   WRITERS' COACHING PROGRAM
     
      The stories we tell  not only express our unique world view,
      they create it.  When many people believe the same story,
      you have a mythology, a legend, a religion, a body politic,
      a tribe, a gang, a family...Story is both the connective tissue
      that unties humans in loving action and the weapon that
      tears us apart...
      What story are you currently telling yourself about
      life and how it works? 
      About yourself as a person,  and as a writer?
      
      Why do you write? 
      What are your values? 
      What is your intention for your writing?
      Who are you writing for?
      What do you hope to achieve?
      How badly do you need to do it?
      Mimi helps you explore your connection to your core SELF
      The non-egoic Self" is a part of your consciousness      
      where your small identities dissolve and your creative
      expression flows unimpeded by fear.  
      This is the  INSPIRATION state where you enter a river of
      imagination and intuition, where you dance with your life force!
      After that, Mimi helps you face the PERSPIRATION --
      the craft of re-writing and self-editing, appying your
      intellect and knowledge of the world and of writing
      to ensure your work is clear, engaging and credible
      These two different processes lead you to a polished work
      you can be proud to share with your readers.

Introductory client testimonials from writers:

 

Mimi's years as a stellar artist and artists' coach have served to foster a deep empathy with other human beings. That combined with her superior intelligence and keen intuition make her an exceptionally gifted coach. It is rare to find all of her qualities in one person. 

~ Katherine Woodward Thomas   

NY Times bestselling author of Calling In The One and Conscious Uncoupling.

"Mimi is a gifted artist, mystic and visionary who is dedicated to service to others. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with her. She is a source of constant inspiration. The perfect muse! With her sensitive, intuitive and skillful facilitation I have been able to bring my book from the ethereal to the tangible. The writer's block I have been experiencing for the past three years has dissolved. The words are now pouring from me! Thank you, Mimi!"  

~TIM CHITTENDEN

 Author of THE 4 R's -- UNLOCKING  YOUR DIVINE POTENTIAL

 

Mimi has helped me edit and rework three novels. Her impeccable sense of timing, language and musicality give her the ability to detect and correct a false note, but also to celebrate well-written prose with heartfelt encouragement and joy. I highly recommend her editing skills for beginning writers as well as seasoned pros. She will give you the precise and insightful artistic eye that you need. Due to her many years of experience in the literary/musical/theatrical world, she is an excellent midwife for any project— she can help you bring your seed of an idea to joyful fruition.

 

~ CYNTHIA MOORE MILLER

   Author of Spencer's Pond, This is Enough, etc.

 

When I handed Mimi Seton my memoir, it was a "finished manuscript".  I'd had a lot of professional eyes read through my book and was working on the cover. But Mimi is so intuitive and so skilled at text analysis that she provided me with two precious gifts:  enthusiasm for what I had accomplished and a detailed list of text errors that the other readers had not caught!  I dubbed her, The Grammar Goddess!

 

Above all, I value the manner in which Mimi entered my book, looking at it from my point of view, eager to support my personal mission, before then looking at it as an outsider, with clear, objective scrutiny formed by decades of artistic output.  She is an amazing midwife for your artistic 'baby'! 

 

~ KAREN INGENTHRON LEWIS

introductory client testimonials from professionals

in Theatre and Music:

J’ai étudié avec Mimi Seton pendant trois ans et de tous les professeur(e)s que j’ai pu rencontrer sur mon parcours, c’est la seule qui a su lier au professionnalisme de son enseignement une profonde humanité, un humour inégalable, la distance nécessaire, l’inspiration, un respect sans faille ainsi qu’une ouverture d’esprit sans pareille. Peu d’entre nous savent transmettre avec autant de ferveur et de bienveillance.»

~Sonia Codhant

Comédienne, metteure en scène, Paris

Mimi Seton's work is eloquent, trenchant, insightful, and always maintains a daring sense of immediacy.
