Mentoring

I deliver one-to-one in-person or Skype creative writing feedback and mentoring on a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis (depending on our mutual availability).

The hour-long sessions are used to provide detailed feedback on work that’s been sent to me in advance, troubleshoot creative challenges, boost confidence, and develop a sustainable creative writing practice. We will set new exercises or targets each session, depending on your aims. I recommend a commitment to at least 3 sessions.

To enquire, please send me an email to ms.skperry@gmail. com. Please include a bit about what you want to get from the sessions and what it is you're working on, as well as your availability.

I had a lot of amazing mentors who gave me their time for free or for not-a-lot, and so I offer a number of students pay-what-you-can sessions. You do not need to disclose your reasons for needing this, just put a note in your initial email stating what you want to pay, or that you want a free place. My standard fee per Skype session is £70, which includes time spent reading and preparing feedback on your work. In-person costs vary depending on travel time required.

I am always happy to hear from schools and organisations looking for a writer-facilitator to run workshops or do a talk with participants of any age. Some of my experience can be found here. Get in touch to discuss details.

For writing enquiries please contact my agent Laura West.

To book me to speak or teach, please email me directly.
