Writers are the backbone of the culture. 

And the culture desperately needs new voices. 

The culture needs your voice.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL:

                            

"I am blown away by my experience with Zara.  I wish I could just take screenshots of our emails and clips from our sessions and turn them into a PowerPoint presentation to show how epic it has been! Zara has this way of finding exactly where you shine the brightest and draws it out of you even more, while actually teaching exactly what you need to learn in order to strengthen and improve your skills. She challenges you to be real, vulnerable, and authentic but holds you in the process every step of the way. Zara not only taught me the technical aspects of writing and storytelling, but she also talked me through the fears, emotions, and trials along the way—making this a truly holistic and collaborative approach to the creative process. If you’re looking for a powerful, funny, and relatable fairy godmother to help make all of your writing wishes come true—

I can’t recommend working with her enough."

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL: 

"Her feedback is invaluable, and she has an incredible ability to take your thoughts, ideas, or ramblings and help you turn them into a powerful story. She helped me take a collection of essays with no storytelling whatsoever, and turn it into a memoir with my own clearly defined style and voice that she helped draw out of me. 

 

Zara is a word witch who has completely transformed my writing, and my relationship to it, through her wisdom. She pours herself into the process and helps you get to the soul of what you’re creating, and that translates in every word."

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR ZARA:

“Reading Zara's writing will make you feel like you're at your cool-as-hell big sister's sleepover party. You will be transfixed by her unflinching honesty and words of wisdom, and she'll successfully convince you to not only ditch the shame you feel about the raw and messy parts of yourself—but to dare to see them as beautiful.”

 

—Alexia LaFata, Editor, New York Magazine

"Zara is a gifted writer—one second she'll have you laughing over rich girls agonizing over which Birkin bag to buy, the next second she'll shatter your heart in one sentence about losing one’s innocence. Zara is the nuanced girl she writes for—light, irreverent, snarky, bitchy, funny; and aching, perceptive, deep, flawed, wise, poised, honest—all at once. Perhaps the only thing that can match Zara's unparalleled wit and big sister advice is her candid humor and undeniable talent for the written word. Zara is one of the most prolific and entertaining honest voices on the internet—and her talent is only multiplied in book form."

—Dayna Troisi, Executive Editor, GO Magazine 

“If Cat Marnell and F. Scott Fitzgerald had a literary baby it would be Zara Barrie. She’s got Marnell’s casual, dark, downright hilarious tone of an irreverent party girl. But then she also has Fitzgerald’s talent for making words literally feel like they sparkle on the page."

—Candice Jalili, AUTHOR of JUST SEND THE TEXT (Simon & Schuster) and MAKING MASHAD (Disney-Hyperion).

MEDIA TESTIMONIALS:
 Zara Barrie's debut book is a funny, candid, and, at times, stark look at mental illness, addiction, sex, and more. Part self-help, part memoir, Barrie takes you behind the scenes of how she went from partying into the morning and waking up with a full face of makeup and a hazy memory to getting her life back in order, finding her purpose, and falling in love with herself again. If you liked Cat Marnell's How to Stop Murdering Your Life, this is a fun read." 

Bustle 

“Raw and purely authentic, never judgemental or condescending, Barrie’s aim is to speak about women’s real-life experiences … those experiences we are taught we aren’t supposed to talk about, or are too embarrassed to share, or feel that no one else could ever understand. And with a target audience of millennial women, this leaves few topics untouched."

The Nerd Daily

"Not only is Zara an amazing writer and storyteller, she keeps it real, raw and honest."
