Creative Writing Surgeries, Feedback and Mentoring

Creative Writing Surgeries

NEXT SURGERY DAY – Tuesday 11th October

I run writing surgeries one day per month. These are by zoom and email. This is a great opportunity to get some close feedback on a specific piece of work, and have the opportunity to talk about the direction that your writing is taking.

How do the surgeries work?

  1. Decide on the zoom slot that suits you from the list below. Book your place using the payment button.
  2. One week before the zoom slot, send me three poems, a short story of up to 2000 words, or creative non fiction of up to 2000 words attached as a word document to this email address: wendyprattfreelancewriter@gmail.com
  3. During your one hour zoom face to face we will go over your work, I will feedback to you (it’s a good idea to make some notes!). During the zoom hour you will also be able to ask any other writing related questions.
  4. Redraft your work and send it to me again at the email above, and I will give some brief annotated feedback on that work.
