Mentoring and Manuscript Assessment


This can take several forms depending on what you’d like help with.

I can provide a one-off Zoom consultation to give you feedback and suggestions for improvement on one piece of writing such as a short story or novel chapter or I can mentor you more regularly, say once a month, to give an ongoing critique and support you on a work-in-progress. I’m happy to work with you at any stage in the writing process: from developing first ideas to editing a sixth or seventh draft.


If interested in a manuscript assessment (a detailed constructive critique of a novel, part of a novel or a collection of shorts stories, which identifies strengths and problem areas to address) and/or having your draft line-edited, copy-edited and/or proofread, so that it’s ready to send to an agent or for self-publication, I’ll be very happy to hear from you.

Get in touch today to ask about a FREE initial Zoom consultation.

Please contact me using the form below to find out more about the above services and my fees. Let me know what you would like help with. In most cases, I will offer a FREE initial Zoom consultation to say hello, discuss your writing needs and outline a plan of action so that you can see if I am right for you.
