Your short stories should first and foremost please you, the writer, and be written in the way you want to write them. But having a second pair of eyes – that don’t belong to a friend or family member! – to take a look can be very useful. I am an experienced writer, editor and workshop tutor and I offer short story critiquing and mentoring, either by email or in person – or a combination of the two.
We will formulate a plan according to what you need – I can look at and comment, for example, on one short story, or several short stories and/or flash fictions, and I will provide you with a detailed written report highlighting the positives, pointing out stylistic and narrative quirks you may not have noticed yourself repeating across stories, and suggesting ways to push yourself further to make a good story truly great!
My fees will depend on the number and length of the stories. Email me [email protected] to discuss.
