Welcome to Storyboxing!

I'm Kristen McGuiness. For over twenty years, I've been working as a book editor, writing coach and bestselling author. And the reason why?

Because I believe our stories have the power to disrupt the world.

Are you ready to write your story? Are you ready to write the good fight?

Read My Story

Join my free webinar “Writing a Book Proposal That Sells to learn how to build the confidence, content and community you need to share your story.


"Kristen’s expertise was exactly what I needed to help organize the chaos in my mind and on the page. She helped me clarify my story’s message and gave me direction for how I was going to tell it. This course was the best next step I could have made and she made it such a fun process!"

-Poppy LynAuthor of Hold On, Let Go

"Kristen has a REAL TALENT for this work. I was amazed at how well she pulled ideas and coaxed our stories forward. Seeing each of us have lightbulb moments in real time, the chill bumps, the tears. It was all beautiful magic!"
