Sustained Development

The Sustained Development approach provides writers with a series of one-on-one meetings, over a period of three to twelve months. This approach offers you distinct deadlines to work towards.

Before the first meeting I will have read some of your manuscript which we’ll discuss at the first meeting, along with making plans for the full six months. Each of the meetings will include in-depth discussion of your work.

As a very experienced teacher and learning designer, I may also suggest readings and exercises to help you develop further in your writing. For writers whose work requires historical, archival, library or ethnographic research, I can offer suggestions and guidance based on my extensive research experience.

One size doesn’t fit all. We will structure the Sustained Development mentoring to suit your needs. Sometimes it’s more important to have detailed close written feedback, other times it is more important to have an in-depth conversation about your writing, your process and how to progress with the work.

Rates: Starts at 10 hours $1,750; 20 hours $3060. Payable on acceptance. Reading time is included in these hours.
