Private coaching is a great option if you’re looking for help with a specific project or work in progress or if you can’t fit a regular course into your schedule. You can decide when you’d like to start.

The price of a single session includes an initial phone consultation, a review of your work, as well as a one hour face-to-face or online session. For the review, you can submit up to 5000 words of a single work. For shorter pieces, such as flash fiction and poetry, it’s often possible to cover more than one work per session, depending on the level of detail you’re looking for in your review. For help with much longer works, such as a novel, it’s also possible to sign up for a manuscript review in combination with private coaching.

Sometimes a single session may be enough, for example, if you want help turning a completed draft into a submission-ready story or poem. If your work is longer or is still very much in progress or if your aim is to improve your skills and acquire new techniques, consider one of our private coaching packages. We can develop a customised learning programme just for you–one that suits your needs and schedule. Our four session package is 5% off the single session price and the eight session package is 10% off.
