Teaching & Mentoring

I work with a handful of mentees each year, usually supporting writers who wish to work on memoir/non-fiction, commercial fiction, or book proposals. I also work with early- or mid-career authors to reflect on their careers to date and develop new strategies and approaches.

My services draw on my practice as a writer, my commercial insight and industry knowledge as a literary scout, and my coaching experience as a former course leader of a Creative Writing MA. You can find more about me on my About Me page.

I’m available to meet in Kent, London or on Skype.

I’m always keen to work with autistic writers or creative practitioners.
