Mentoring

In response to the many emails received from authors in need of ongoing support, I have spent the last year developing and trialling a new mentoring scheme to make it as effective and affordable as possible.

I am now able to offer mentoring across a broad range of abilities and completion levels. Whether you have yet to put pen to paper or have completed (or part-written) the novel, I am able to work with you to create an appropriate package. The aim is not only to enhance the quality and elevate the writing to reflect your true potential, but to equip you with the key skills and knowledge to continue along the writing path.

What Level?

Beginners

Working with authors from the point of conception, through the developmental and writing stages, I will…

  • set tasks to generate structural and developmental ideas, leading to a concrete outline of the book
  • work with you to create a monthly writing plan that is realistic and manageable, while pushing your project forward
  • critique your agreed monthly output. For fiction writers, we will focus on character, plot, dialogue, structure, language and pace. For authors writing non-fiction, we will focus on language, structure, pace, relevance and information value
  • provide you with writing exercises to address weaknesses in your writing
  • be available throughout the month to answer questions and offer support

Intermediate

Working with authors who have part-written their book, but would like support to progress, I will…

  • read through the incomplete novel and accompanying notes, etc.
  • discuss areas of concern in the initial chapters and provide feedback to address them
  • develop a plan to bring the novel to completion
  • critique your agreed monthly output. As above, for fiction writers, we will focus on character, plot, dialogue, structure, language and pace. For authors writing non-fiction, we will focus on language, structure, pace, relevance and information value
  • provide you with writing exercises to address weaknesses in your writing
  • be available throughout the month to answer questions and offer support

Advanced

Working with authors who have completed at least a first draft of their book, I will…

  • perform a thorough read-through to identify areas in need of reworking
  • devise a plan to address the changes, moving at an appropriate monthly pace. As above, for fiction writers, we will focus on character, plot, dialogue, structure, language and pace. For authors writing non-fiction, we will focus on language, structure, pace, relevance and information value
  • provide you with writing exercises to address weaknesses in your writing
  • be available throughout the month to answer questions and offer support
