I am a writer, editor, scholar, public relations and community outreach professional, curator, creativity coach and mentor. I use experiential education, art school permission and storytelling circles to co-create collaborative environments that generate a sense of freedom, permission, possibility and flow. I am midwife for creative endeavors and writing projects. I am a deep listener and witness for realizing creative dreams. I help you manifest what is yours to make real in your world.

"If you are at a point in your life where you need advice, encouragement, inspiration, or just plain help on marketing yourself or your work to the world, Elizabeth Benson is absolutely the most incredible person you could ever hire as a consultant. I am a documentary filmmaker, and I hired Elizabeth to help me write grants, proposals, and pitches to get my film made -- a film which incidentally won awards and was bought by NBC television to air nationwide! I could not have completed my journey without the help of the remarkable Elizabeth Benson! Yes, she is an artist. Yes, a muse. Yes, a wise woman. But Elizabeth is also an extremely experienced business woman with many years high-end experience working in the Dot.Com tech world around the San Francisco area. She really knows what she's talking about. Her expertise as a manager, marketing guru, and venture capitalist (dare I say such a word about such a creative and wonderful woman?!) are bar none -- and really help to round out her world-view when it comes to practical issues such as: How DOES one write a press release that actually gets read and published, or, how DOES one put together a professional well-written pitch to find funding for a project, and then get that pitch (or book) read, and taken seriously. Besides all of this professional background, Elizabeth is also a gifted and empathetic deep thinker, whose creative pursuits, talented writing skills, and profound intuition can bring the most blocked or tired of us back up out of our depths of despair, her spirit invigorating us to charge forth and believe in our own inner muse, and our own ultimate creative gifts and dreams. I highly recommend using Ms. Benson's insights, encouragement, talents, and advice, not just for her experience and wisdom, but also -- because her humor and warmth will astound you! "
