My mentoring is ideal for those looking to work on larger projects who may need more long term support. This could look like someone working on a selection of poems to submit to literary journals, putting together a pamphlet or collection for submission or even just someone who wants to get started with poetry or have a refresher! These are offered as dedicated one to one sessions.
Within a one to one editing workshop, we will explore 3-5 poems (no more than 40 lines each unless pre-agreed - this will require a higher charge). I will request for these to be sent prior to our session so I can provide thorough feedback and edits to be discussed via zoom. We can arrange the workshop to fit around your schedule, however I will need 1-2 weeks for preparation. During group sessions, you will expect to receive feedback from both myself and workshop attendees on one poem and you will offer feedback on other peoples work. This is a great way to improve your skills as an editor, learn how to critique and meet like minded people.
I’m particularly excited to be working with other creative practitioners this year to provide writing for wellbeing workshops and recently worked with the fantastic wellbeing and empowerment coach Stephie Be. We put together a beautiful session which explored reflection, gratitude and connection through exercises and creative responses. I will be co-facilitating more workshops like this which focus on the process of writing, self care and an exploration of emotions as opposed to learning about an aspect of poetry. The perfect way to get your feelings on the page without the pressure of creating the perfect poem.
