6-week Mentoring Programme for Creative Writers who have a handful of short stories or the start of a novel and want to kickstart their writing goals in 2021.
If you’re quite new to writing or have been writing for some time and seem to be getting nowhere, then this is a course for you. I will work with you one-to-one on your stories or chapters and I will also run some online workshops/seminar sessions on specific aspects of writing. I am looking for a max. of 10 people so spaces are limited.
VERY Special Price of only £169 per person payable by January 1st.
Email me now or message me here if you want to sign up. Payment secures your place. Tell me about your writing goals when you email me.
The course starts Monday, January 4th, 2021.
Sessions will be run at times that suit you. I will endeavour to run group sessions at times that suit all but the sessions will be recorded if you can’t make it. The course ends Sunday, February 14th, 2021 but I am happy to review the stories/chapters completed post-edit after that time for no further fee.
Why me and why this course?
I am first and foremost a writer, and have been my whole life – but I only started to write seriously about seventeen years ago. It took five years before I was good enough for my first short story to be accepted for publication. Before that I played, did the odd course, but then I had to step things up and learn the craft if I wanted to make a career out of it. I did a second Master’s degree (having been a scientist first) in Creative Writing in 2010 and I also took courses in editing and proof-reading and learned by working for a short story publisher. Slowly I had more and more successes and started to win competitions with my short stories. Now I have over thirty short story successes, have my own small press and work for Bridge House Publishing. I also have a wonderful agent, only one novel published to date but four more in varying stages of submission. I also work as a professional editor, offering full manuscript appraisals for private clients as well as through the renowned Cornerstones Literary Consultancy.
I am one of you and I know what it takes to have success but that we need to grow a thick skin. However, I can tell you that being prepared to work and rework and learn, success will come. But you need to put in those hours.
I can’t guarantee you will be published after this course, but one thing I will guarantee, you will learn, you will see where your strengths and weaknesses lie and you will be a step closer to that goal.
Even after the course I would hope we stay in touch support one another with our writing.
