One of the best things about being a writer is working with other writers.

I have presented workshops on writing in the UK and abroad – and am also a mentor on the RNA’s highly acclaimed New Writers’ Scheme.

Writing Retreats

Along with fellow author Alison May, I tutor during weekend residential writing retreats each year. In 2019,  the Autumn retreat will be from be from October 11- 13. There are limited places left on this retreat.

In 2020, there will be three retreats:

Early Spring Retreat – 31st January-2nd February 2020

Summer Retreat – 12th-14th June 2020

Autumn Retreat – 30th October-1st November 2020

These retreats are aimed at both new writers and published authors who are starting a new work and need to focus on story structure, characters and writing basics. each course is different – tailored to meet the requirements of a specific group of students.

More about the next retreat will be posted here in mid July.

Manuscript Appraisals

I take a select number of private clients for manuscript appraisal and assistance. These would typically be an in depth written evaluation of all or part of a novel, novella or short story. I will also give one-to-one discussion of the manuscript via Skype. Prices vary for this service, depending on the length of the work and the exact service required, but prices typically start about £175 for a novella or partial novel to £250 upwards for a full length novel. I will review and assist with a short story and/or synopsis, with price usually below £100.

If you are interested in having me work with you, please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Workshops

I frequently run individual workshops, day long courses and give talks to writers and writing groups. Writing topics include plot and story structure for short stories and novels, locations and characters, dialogue, editing and the manuscript submission process.  I also draw on my background in television to give sessions on how to work with media and I give technology tips for writers.

Workshops can be tailored to individual requirements. If you would like me to give a workshop, please contact me.
