Mentoring

dsc01304-e1521720554665.jpeg

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 skcperry@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.
