Since 2018, I have helped many writers prior to the publication of their novellas (at publishers including Ad Hoc Fiction, V. Press, Ellipsis Zine, Reflex Press, Flash: the International Short-Short Story Press, and Hamish Hamilton). I’m a certified creativity coach, associate member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, and author of the first ever full craft guide for writing a novella-in-flash. I believe strongly in a supportive editing/feedback process that builds on each writer’s unique strengths. You can read some testimonials by previous clients here: novella-in-flash testimonials.

(1) Standard Manuscript Appraisal: for when you’d like detailed developmental feedback on a manuscript before submitting it to a publisher or competition. This option will help you to confirm how ready your manuscript is, and identify changes that need to be made. You will receive minimum 3-4 pages of feedback on your manuscript, plus a 60-90 minute conversation (by Zoom/GoogleMeets/telephone) to discuss key areas and explore your routes forward.

(2) Enhanced Manuscript Appraisal: As above, with line by line copy editing recommendations.(Subject to availability.)

(3) Mentoring: Want to write a novella-in-flash? Here’s an online mentoring programme which gives you extended one-to-one support while you develop a new manuscript.

(4) Work-in-Progress “Clarity Call”: Have you put together the beginnings of a first draft of a novella-in-flash, but don’t know where to head next with the material? Book a 90-minute in-depth discussion by Zoom/GoogleMeets/telephone, to gain clarity, brainstorm ideas together, and develop a tangible action plan of next steps.   

Please send your enquiry about the support you need (giving brief details of the project, including word count, and stating which type of help you are looking for), through the contact form below.
