Using the teaching platform, Tutorful, I offer my services to work with anyone who wants help with their creative writing.

I have worked with new authors, as well as high school students preparing for exams, to help them structure their work and gain confidence in their ability to tell a story.

I work with the writer/student to look at the following:

  • Plotting and structure

  • Character development

  • Perspective and tense options

  • Storytelling

  • Dialogue

  • and many more...

And it doesn't end there. For the ambitious among you, I can also offer coaching and advice with publishing. As a successful self-published author, I can help you make your dream a reality by working with you to get your work finished to a professional standard, and then looking at options to get it out in the world for readers to enjoy.

Though my time is limited, I am committed to helping new writers find their way, whatever stage you're currently at. Sessions are available online, but if anyone is local to me (within 5 miles of Bury, Greater Manchester, UK) I am happy to work with you in person. Click below for more information, and to get in touch to book your first session with me.

This is an opportunity I wish I had when I first started out - to be able to work alongside a successful author and learn from their experience in the industry. If you believe there's a novel inside you itching to get out, don't put it off any longer!
