1-hour custom mentoring session


Are you struggling with motivation, self-confidence, or getting ideas? Are you halfway through a novel and don't know how to finish? How about some advice on finding an agent or navigating the publishing world? If you think you would benefit from some bespoke, one-to-one support, I can help.

The mentoring is guided by your needs and each session is custom-fitted to you. For example, you may wish to send me a short story or poem you've written, and we can discuss ways to improve it. You may have a finished novel draft and want to discuss what your next steps could be towards getting an agent or publisher. You may still be at the idea stage and want some guidance on how to structure your writing time, increase your productivity or expand on your ideas. Whatever stage you're at in your writing career, I can adapt the session to suit you.

The sessions can be on Zoom, Skype or phone. For several years I have worked as a mentor for the WoMentoring Project and Scottish Book Trust, and have helped dozens of aspiring writers, many of whom have gone on to be published.

Please include your preferred date and time as a note when you purchase, as well as any other info you'd like me to know in advance (don't worry if you forget; I will email you to arrange).

Other time frames and levels of mentoring can be arranged to suit you. I also consider discounts depending on your personal circumstances; do get in touch and we can discuss.

One 1-hour session: £200
I also offer 3 x 1-hour sessions for £500 – this is available as a separate item in the shop.
