I’ll read a completed ms from you (or a partial plus synopsis) and then discuss my thoughts with you afterwards, either in person or by email/phone (or a combination), up to a total of around 5 hours’ discussion time. I want to give each mentee the chance to come back with questions once they start the rewrite process, because often you don’t know what problems are going to crop up until this point.
