Support for Writers

Need feedback on a piece of writing or support to develop your writing career?

Help with motivation or to build your confidence?

My critique and mentoring services can help you achieve your writing goals.

 

SHORT STORY CRITIQUES

It can be useful to get professional advice on your writing, especially if you want to enter a competition or submit to a publisher. I specialise in writing flash fiction and short stories and have knowledge and experience of various markets including women’s magazine fiction and literary magazines.

I’ll read your story and give you a detailed written report which will highlight strengths and ways you might improve it. And, if required, I’ll provide advice about where and how you might submit your story for publication. My prices are:

Flash fiction (up to 1000 words): £15
Short stories (1001-3000 words): £25

I can also help with longer pieces – please contact me for an individual quote.

 

MENTORING

I can work with you to help you focus and stay motivated. Or provide professional advice on how to make progress on a particular project.

Mentoring can take place over a set period of time or on a one off basis by telephone, Skype or face to face – whatever suits you best.

I typically charge £20 an hour for this service.

For more information and/or a quote please contact me.

“Feedback from Amanda on my flash fiction and short stories has helped me develop my writing in several ways. She’s helped me to identify what’s worked well and provided ideas on how to improve the form, balance and focus of the work as well as suggesting further resources; including literary theory or relevant short story and flash fiction writers.”
