Let’s create a safe space for radical imagination

Susie Meserve, author, editor, creative mind-body coach, on susiemeserve.com

HI, I’M SUSIE.

Poet. Writer. Singer-Songwriter. Educator. Mom to two. Life-long learner. Creative mind-body coach.

I help artists and writers clarify their visions and goals and develop practices to support fulfilling and sustainable creative lives. In addition to traditional coaching tools, I incorporate somatic awareness into my work. The body is a great source of information, and also, where we tend to store old patterns, limiting beliefs, and habits that no longer serve us.

I have a special place in my heart—and my practice!—for working artist parents. I see you. I am one of you.

I have a certificate in Mind-Body Coaching from The Embody Lab and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. I’m the author of an award-winning poetry collection and essays and poems that have appeared widely, in publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, and many literary journals and anthologies.

I bring to coaching the wisdom I have learned from a lifetime spent in creative practice and twenty years of teaching writing (many of them to art students). My own personal journey through meditation, Yoga, and Pilates informs my work every day. I love learning about the science of habit-forming, sharing creative prompts, and reading everything I can get my hands on (particularly literary fiction, memoirs, poetry, and, lately, murder mysteries).

Learn more about my practice, rates, and how we can work together on my FAQs page.

Work with Me

Mind-body coaching can unlock patterns that reside not only in the mind but deep in the tissues. As a creative mind-body coach, I help writers and artists move forward with purpose so they can live at their most fulfilled. We might spend a session working somatically, brainstorming, in creative practice, or organizing around concrete intentions. My goal is to provide you with a safe space for radical imagination. 

In addition to coaching, I teach creative writing around the Bay Area and online.

NEW POEMS

Readers! I made a bit of a tactical error way back when, by creating a mailing list AND a blog with its own separate list, and I have a million social media accounts I neglect. All of which is to say, forgive me if you're getting this news twice or thrice, but eager I...

SPRING EQUINOX & SUSIE AT BAY AREA BOOK FESTIVAL

Friends­, here's what the Spring Equinox looks like here in Northern California. I got so excited about the torrential rains predicted last Saturday, a gig-postponing, movie-afternoon kind of rain. Instead, it sprinkled for an hour. Climate change and drought, folks,...

THE SLIDESHOW

It would take a thousand photos to really explain a year of Covid. We had one slideshow. New Year's Eve, 2021. We enjoyed a Covid-style masked backyard cocktail with friends and came home for a decadent fondue dinner just the four of us. I'd thrown the photos together...
