Hello. I’m glad you’re here.
I’m Brad Wetzler. I’m the author of the new memoir Into the Soul of the World: My Journey to Healing (Hachette Go, 2023), and I’m your award-winning editor and memoir writing coach. I will help you write and publish your memoir or nonfiction book.
Who am I, and why should you choose me to be your memoir or nonfiction book writing coach?
I believe I have more experience than anybody in the writing coaching business? I’ve coached hundreds of authors to write and publish their books. But my experience runs deeper than that. I’ve also been writing and editing professionally at the highest levels of publishing since 1990, when I was 24. Over the past 30 years, I’ve written two books published by major traditional publishers and penned hundreds of articles and essays for top publications such as the New York Times, Newsweek, GQ, Wired, National Geographic, Travel + Leisure, and Outside, where I was a senior editor for six years and contributing editor for 17 years.
My work has been anthologized by the Best American Travel Writing series and other anthologies. I have a masters’ degree in journalism from prestigious Northwestern University.
Some of the publications I’ve written for include:
- The New YorkTimes (Magazine, Book Review, Op-Ed page, and Travel section)
- National Geographic
- Yoga Journal
- Men’s Journal
- Travel + Leisure
- Outside and
- George, among others.
