I used to be a writer myself, so I know how tough it can be, but I also know how much helpful feedback can improve things. I wrote for tv – for children and adults, mostly comedy, and I also used to be an actress, so I think I have a pretty good sense of character and voice. I’ve been an agent for several years now, and have very much enjoyed working with people to get their writing ready to show publishers.
- Fiction children’s (no picture books)
I’m offering two hours a month for six months. Happy to do this by email or skype at first, with the possibility of a meeting in or near London if we both feel that things are going well. I’d have to put a limit on the amount of reading I’d do – we could discuss this together
In person, by email, by telephone.
