Small Group Mentoring

Looking for creative feedback and direction? I’m here to help.

My small group mentoring sessions will focus on providing you with feedback/suggestions and the guidance needed to polish and perfect your manuscript. I’ll only be taking on a small number of clients at a time, to allow for intimate 1-1 sessions. We will meet as a group with like-minded writers who you’ll get to know and network with. If you’d like people in the group to become your beta-readers, then great! More the feedback you get from a variety of writers, the better your writing will become!

What I will provide:

  • I’ll read and provide valuable feedback on 2,000 words of your manuscript prior to every session.
  • A 1.5-2hr group session where we will work on your manuscript.
  • A group chat to bounce ideas off one another.
  • Prompts, resources and professional advice.
  • Tea/coffee/snacks
  • A discounted rate of $50 per session (As this is my first time running these classes)
  • Ongoing mentoring (These classes will continue until you feel you’re ready to go at it alone)

DATES: (THURSDAYS: 6:30-8pm) WST
