Creative Writing
Option 1

Elementary, my Dear Writer

Starts At

Do you want to write a book but don’t know where to start? Do you have a story idea that won’t let you go? Are you a secret scribbler who’s been too shy to share your work so far? If so, then ‘Elementary, my dear writer’ is the perfect workshop for you.


  • Full day workshop
  • Readings
  • Exercises
  • Share your work
  • All welcome
Option 2

Picture Book Assessment

Starts At

Picture books are one of the hardest works to write. Not only do you have to consider the developmental age of your audience, but you also need to leave room for the illustrations to do their work And family and friends are not the best people to show your work to. So, if you’ve written a picture book and want feedback from an industry professional, a Picture Book Assessment is ideal.


  • Option to send one, two or three picture book manuscripts at one time for assessment.
  • All manuscripts are read by me personally.
  • Detailed report with clear action steps provided.
Option 3

Intensive Manuscript Assessment

Starts At

Writing is a very isolated pursuit. It requires stamina and dedication. But it’s also very hard to read your own work with an objective eye. We all know what we want to say but our minds can trick us that our ideas are on the page, when sometimes, they’re not. That’s where a manuscript assessment comes in.


  • Detailed analysis of the first 10,000 words of your manuscript.
  • Your questions answered.
  • Strengths, weaknesses, readability and marketability of the manuscript discussed in a detailed report.
  • First chapter copy edited.
Option 4


Starts At

No matter where you are in your writing journey, you need feedback on your writing. But finding someone you can trust is hard, which is why I offer an obligation-free initial meeting to see if we’re a good fit for each other. When you share your work with me, you can be assured of a professional and caring process designed to get your great ideas out of your head and onto the page.


  • Professional and impartial feedback on your work.
  • Your questions answered.
  • Action plan and follow-up sessions.
