So, when you think about your writing and publishing journey, does any of this sound super familiar? Or like something you think about on a regular basis?

Do you think about…

Kickstarting your writing and needing to get over writer’s block?

How to further develop your craft to help you build your confidence and realise your full potential?

Your writing routine and long-term goals; how they’ve gone out of the window and you need to get them back on track?

All those other writers you see online getting their work published, wishing you could be like them but feeling unsure of where to start?

Diversifying your skills, marketing what you do and starting to make money from your writing, but you don’t know how to go about it?

Well, I can help! What if I told you that I can support you to figure out where to start, how to go about it, and how to get back on track…

I can’t do the work for you, but I can be your confidant and champion; standing in your corner to offer helpful hints, tips and advice along the way, and providing you with the information, tools and guidance you need to find your own path through the writing and publishing industry.

WHY ME?

Because, I promise, I know how you feel.

I’ve been there. In fact, I’m still there — because we’re all still learning and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying!

In the last 10 years, I’ve overcome some serious challenges, celebrated some pretty cool successes, and learnt some really important lessons that I want to share with you.

And because, I am you.

I’ve been writing (seriously) since 2009 and, over that time, I’ve hit many a wall only to break through and come out of the other side.

Since then, I’ve spent 6 years building this platform; supporting over 300 writers from all backgrounds, in all lines of work, located across the world, to showcase themselves and publish their work. To find a routine that suits them and to build their confidence as they develop their craft. And to feel like they are in the company of someone, of a community and a network, who gets it, who gets them.

I’ve spent over 5 years delivering and facilitating workshops, and teaching Creative Writing and Poetry to hundreds of students at Loughborough University where I still teach today.

I’m passionate about writing, and I’m passionate about ensuring that you feel confident enough in your own craft that you can reach your personal and professional goals.


ONE-OFF MENTORING CALL

Is there something that’s niggling away at you and your writing that you’d like to run through with me on the phone? I’m so happy to be your sounding board and to offer my support and advice along the way… I’ll also follow-up with you immediately afterwards, sharing personalised resources and downloadable tools to help you on your journey!

THREE-MONTH SUPPORT PROGRAMME

Talk to me about anything related to writing and publishing as part of your monthly Mentoring calls. We can talk about your creative work or the ‘business’ of becoming a writer. You’ll receive three critiques on your work(s)-in-progress, downloadable tools and resources, and I’ll be on-hand at any time throughout the programme (via phone, email or text).
