During your one-to-one editorial tutorial, Alice will look in depth at your fiction or picture book manuscript. Alice will work closely with you, at your own pace, to inspire, develop and focus your creative practice. In each tutorial Alice will give feedback on your story, provide advice and set targets to help keep you on track.

Editorial tutorials may include areas of development such as plot, narrative, pacing, character development, advice/tips on pitching to agents and publishers.

The tutorial is tailored to your story and your individual needs. 

 

If this is your first consultation Alice will also supply general notes regarding publishing where relevant. 

 

Many of our clients sign for more than one tutorial. This is ideal for you if:

You want continued focused feedback on your work

You have more than one picture book text you'd like focused feedback on

You are working on a fiction project and want feedback along the way

You want to grow your voice as a writer

If you're not sure how many tutorials you should sign up for, Alice will discuss your ambitions and story with you and advise.

After all tutorials you will receive detailed written feedback with goals to work towards. This feedback is individual to you, and written following the session.

I really liked how honest, encouraging and clear the tutorials were

"I worked with Alice on my first children's novel . . . Alice has the perfect balance of sympathetic encouragement, astute judgment . . . with her guidance I was able to take an overlong and rather rambling narrative and craft it into a tightly plotted, fast paced story."
