MY NAME IS...
Liva Leisner

I am a writer mentor. I have written stories all my life and I love exploring and improving the writing process and helping others do the same. 


When I was younger, I would spend hours thinking up sequels to books I liked and I began writing stories of my own when I was five years old. My mum still has a "book" I wrote about a drop of water who set out to find the ocean :)


Storytelling and writing have always been my companions, safe mental places where my creativity could blossom.

I'm here to help you discover your inner writer too.

I will help you find your way


Writing is a deeply personal and emotional journey and just letting anyone read my stories was an incredibly big step for me, which I wasn't ready to take until I was well into my twenties.


Writing (like any other creative craft) is linked to the writer's emotions, and in my time I've walked head first into every single writer's block and writer's pitfall that exists, because my writing has been influenced by things happening in my life. And digging myself out of every calamity has been hard because I never found anyone to guide me. 

So I know exactly how hard it can be to move yourself out of tangled plots, characters who refuse to do what you want them to, not to mention making your loved ones understand the need for the process of writing itself and the mental calm it can require. There are many things in our stressful and hectic and wonderful lives that can make a writer not write.


My greatest desire is to help you find your perfect way to start writing and keep doing it. I love it when I can help my clients take their first steps with their novel or help them find new confidence, creative focus and perfect their writing style, plot and characters.


When writing, the magic itself happens within you. I will help you draw that writing magic out. :) Whether you are completely new to writing and aren't sure where to begin, or a seasoned veteran who needs a hand untangling a plot-line, I'm here to help you.

For years I’ve dreamt of writing a book. I started at least 700 times in my head but couldn’t get anything down on paper. I knew where my story started and ended, but I just kept getting frustrated. But then I bought Liva's help as a writer mentor.

Liva has helped me realise exactly what “shape” I want my story to be and guided me to discovering the tools that I need to write. And now I’m actually writing!

I also know that I have Liva as a back-up if I write myself into a corner. AND she’s always there when I lose confidence and need to be inspired to believe in my novel and my writing. Liva has become a close friend that I totally trust and with her kindness and never-ending patience, she really helps me to fulfil my dream. Her confidence in me boosts my energy and makes me believe I CAN write.

Thank you, Liva!

You, the writer



If you are like a lot of the clients I help - a writer in your heart who has just not begun writing yet - then I actually know a few things about you.


  • You have always had a strong and far-reaching creative impulse, but you are also a perfectionist and always set the bar sky-high for yourself.
  • It seems like too big a task to start writing, even though the story you want to tell has been with you for a long time.
  • The task of starting, not to mention finishing, a book seems huge and frustrating.
  • Sometimes you doubt if you even have what it takes to tell your story, and maybe writing should just stay a dream.
  • You sometimes feel drained of energy living up to your demands to yourself and can’t imagine having time to write your story.
  • You are afraid your story will seem silly to others and opening yourself up to criticism feels way too vulnerable.


But trust me, it doesn’t have to be like this!


You can write your story and you can navigate the pitfalls.

Like any other craft, the more you write, the better you become! And as a writer mentor I can help you avoid the pitfalls of the creative process, because I’ve fallen into every single one of them myself and I know where they are hiding :)


I can help you begin writing and help you develop your style and story so you can feel confident and secure in your abilities. I would love to guide you on your journey to unlocking your writing-creativity and storytelling.


If you are here on my site, it’s because you are a writer! I know you can write, even though it feels overwhelming to start.

So, contact me for a free introduction session so we can talk about where you are, where you want to go and what you need.
