Mentoring

I love working with other writers working on everything from picture books to Middle Grade stories, YA to novels. I offer editorial support and mentoring tailored to your individual aims and needs. Ready to query agents or publishers? I can help with this too.

The writer’s companion

‘The Writer’s Companion’ is a longer term partnership. Encompassing a structural edit, it also allows for skilled, coaching-based one-to-one support as you develop your work(s) in progress, your skills and your confidence. I can help you work towards submission stage, with tailored advice all the way.

Bespoke mentoring packages

I am happy to offer long or short term mentoring – perhaps to help you with a specific issue that’s getting in the way, or more holistic issues such as confidence, goal setting or recognising and celebrating progress.

Feedback from writers

‘Thank you doesn’t quite seem enough for all the support and guidance you have given me over the past year. Your kind but honest appraisal, editorial suggestions and motivating FaceTime chats have kept me going, when perhaps I’d have given up. You’re my literary fairy, who flutters in now and then and sprinkles her magic!’

‘Getting your input was the best investment I’ve ever made as everything is so much clearer now.’

My support is based on a rate of £60 per hour. If you’d like to know more, please follow/message me on Twitter @kateleestory or get in touch for an initial chat.
