The Creative Writing Mentoring Programme

I have been running this for several years, offering one-to-one mentoring and advice to new and experienced writers combined with detailed editorial feedback on their works-in-progress. In that time members of the programme have used its package structure to help them complete a number of novel and short story projects. Poets and script writers are also welcome to join. More information can be found here:
