Writers’ Services

I’m a bestselling novelist and have been teaching Creative Writing since 2004. I have a BA in English, a Certificate in Education (Cert. Ed), a Postgraduate Certificate in Periodical Journalism and an MA in Creative Writing. I am an Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University  and a Royal Literary Fund Fellow.

I offer the following services that may be of interest to writers (you’ll find testimonials on each page):

Workshops – (Temporarily suspended due to Covid 19) click here for full details of forthcoming Saturday workshops and Space to Write days run jointly with fellow writer Russ Thomas.

Critiques – I offer a thorough, honest and detailed critique service, whether you want feedback on a short story, a complete novel or a couple of chapters. Includes prices and submission guidelines.

Mentoring packages – mentoring is aimed at writers working on longer pieces of work such as a novel, short story collection, or portfolio of work for an application to a writing MA. These packages would also suit those who are unable to attend a regular writing course and feel they would benefit from working to deadlines and receiving detailed and honest feedback. Includes prices.
