Creative Writing Surgeries, Feedback and Mentoring

Creative Writing Surgeries

SOLD OUT FOR MAY

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.

Mentoring and Feedback

I am currently unable to offer long term mentoring at this time. But what I can offer is appraisal of short manuscripts of up to 20 poems, and full manuscripts of up to 60 poems. I am only able to offer this service for one manuscript at a time. Do contact me if you have a work of fiction or creative non fiction and I will be able to give you a quote for feedback and/or editing and a time scale for that work.

What’s Included?

Short MS

  1. A two hour face to face appraisal of a poetry manuscript of up to twenty poems, via zoom.
  2. Annotated feedback on that manuscript, after the zoom session.
