Each session with Mimi leaves me feeling joyful and energized. This is my first experience working with a real editor. Mimi has an outstanding ability to listen, discern, and bring full attention to the writing of another person. I feel I have received a gift of inestimable value to know that I am heard, understood, and that my work is being considered deeply. The Distance Writing Project provides structure and reason to develop a daily writing practice. I write out of pressing need to communicate, but struggle to to use language effectively. Mimi affirms the worth of the time and energy devoted to this effort. I am excited to learn about language in ways I previously never imagined. Mimi opens new vistas each time we meet. She provides me with tools and skills that enable me to thrive in these challenging times when our means of connecting with others has been so drastically compromised.

Mimi is an extraordinary creativity coach.  She is a great listener, she understands the writer, and curates her advice based on his/her skill level.    She taught me to use the power of intuition to write in a way that connects better with a reader. 


Mimi also gave me useful tips about how to create powerful images with words that can transport the reader to a desired state of mind. I would recommend her services to everyone, whether they are a novice or an expert."

I have recently completed the first two-month session of The Distance Project with Mimi Seton.   This was an invaluable experience both personally and creatively. Mimi Seton’s writing, editing and counselling skills combine to encourage us to discover our voice and craft it into excellent writing.  With her highly intuitive storytelling skills and understanding of my needs, she has taught me the foundations of better story writing.  This will make my work more accessible to readers in general and embellish my skills as a Communications Coach.
