Literary fiction and science
I’m offering to read and critique up to 6000 words of prose and two hours of face-to-face mentoring, either in person or via Skype/FaceTime, to discuss the feedback, writing in general, career development, routes to publication, and anything else of interested. I’m happy to tailor my approach – everyone’s different and for me it’s about finding what works best for the individual writer.
