Working with Wordsmith_HQ to publish my first pamphlet has been an amazing experience. Sophie is a fantastic editor and helped me a lot through the mentoring she provided along the way. She isn't afraid to challenge and question, but, at the same time, I always know she has my back and believes in me as a writer.
It was wonderful to see my poems in Freckled Ink! Wordsmith_HQ promoted them across their social media platforms which was great exposure. The team were also very approachable and helpful. If you're wondering whether or not to submit, I'd recommend you go for it!
Mentoring support from Sophie built my confidence as a poet. It allowed me to reflect on the creative decisions I had made in drafting poems for inclusion in adversaries/comrades and empowered me to make positive changes to the manuscript. I completely trust Sophie’s advice.
The writing world is an inherently lonely place, and can stay that way for far too many. I was lucky enough to be swept into the wonderful sphere of positive, fantastic influence that is Wordsmith, and I cannot even begin to thank them enough for all their continued support in a fresh writer's career!
