Working for you
We offer four core services; Writers Surgery offers a one hour consultation, Manuscript Appraisal and Mentoring Packages can be adapted to suit your needs, Apprenticeships is a full one year professional development programme.
Apprenticeships in Fiction has a firmly established reputation for turning out professional novelists.
A number of annual one-year placements are available in every genre including literary fiction, crime and children’s fiction (ages 11-16).
Whether already published or just starting out, our goal is to offer you an objective overview of your manuscript and a strategy for improvement.
We aim to pitch appraisals appropriately.
We offer two key packages.
If you have recently embarked on writing a novel and would like some support in the early stages, Start-Up is the package for you.
Stage-One is aimed at more experienced writers who have already completed a full draft.
Adventures in Fiction offers structured one-to-one sixty-minute consultations. This is an opportunity to discuss your novel with an experienced professional novelist. The aim is to provide a framework, to identify what you are aiming for and to offer a strategy for moving forward.
