Ever since I started writing seriously, I’ve found having a writing partner to bounce ideas around with and give me feedback on my work in progress has helped me improve so much.
So to share and celebrate my success getting a two-book deal with Urbane Publications I am offering a free six month mentoring programme to one writer to start in January 2016. I will then run this every year.
The mentoring offer includes an initial meeting (either in person or by Skype if face-to-face is not possible) to get to know each other and so I can find out about your work and your hopes for it; a monthly phone/Skype catch up to talk through ideas and my feedback on your work you’ve sent over; and a review of your novel outline and 5,000 words per month.
To enter the competition to win the mentoring programme you need to email me a 500 word statement of why you’re the right person to be mentored and 500 words of your writing. There is a reading fee of £15 per entry. You can pay that here. The deadline for entries is 7th December 2015. I will announce the winner in the first week of January.
