Mentoring and Manuscript Assessment


This can take several forms depending on what you need. For instance, I could provide a one-off Zoom consultation to give you feedback and suggestions for improvement on a single piece of writing such as a short story or a novel chapter. Alternatively, I could mentor you regularly, say once a month, to give you ongoing support and feedback on a work-in-progress. I’m happy to work with you at any stage in the writing process: from developing first ideas to revising a sixth or seventh draft.


If interested in a manuscript assessment (a detailed constructive critique of a novel or a collection of short stories, which identifies strengths and areas to address), or in having your manuscript edited and proofread so that it’s ready to send to an agent, I’ll be very happy to hear from you.

Get in touch to arrange an initial Zoom consultation

Please contact me to find out more about the above services and my fees. Let me know where you’re at with your writing and what support you’d like. If I can help you, I’ll offer a free initial Zoom chat to say hello, discuss your writing needs and come up a plan of action. Go ahead and drop me a line!
