Clare has used her extensive writing, teaching and mentoring experience to help many writers achieve their goals of improvement, exposure, and publication.  As part of her longstanding commitment to fostering new writers of talent and commitment, Clare is currently undertaking a limited number of literary consultancy and mentoring engagements.  If you are a writer of proven commitment, who is keen to see your work develop, then a one-off consultancy report, or a mentoring relationship, could be the vital next step in your writing career.

What Clare offers:

  • Literary Consultancy: a one-off reading and report on up to 10,000 words of fiction (short story or novel)
  • Literary Consultancy: a one-off reading and report on up to 20,000 words of fiction (short story or novel) and including one Skype discussion of 30 minutes
  • Mentoring: three month mentoring relationship including 3 reports on up to a total of 40,000 words and including two Skype discussions of 30 minutes
  • Where the writing shows exceptional promise, Clare may be able to suggest a literary agent from among her extensive contacts.

The advice Clare offers can be tailored to your needs – from line by line editing to suggestions on overall structure.

Drawing on her own experience and the experiences of the many other writers she has worked with, Clare also offers coaching on how to handle the challenges of the writing life.
