Mentoring

I offer mentoring for writers, artists and craft workers who are looking to develop a more contextual relationship and/or professional status with their work.

Mentoring differs to coaching in that it focuses on a specific area of development; the mentor models, to some extent, the ambitions of the mentee.

Creative mentoring provides ongoing support, through confidential critique and insightful perspectives for developing and planning creative careers.

 

Coaching sessions are a good place to start: to clarify and develop strategies for deepening commitment to creative work and professional practice. If it becomes clear that a longer term mentoring relationship would be of value, we can discuss this at that point.

I usually work with a limited amount of mentees at once: it is sometimes a more intensive or task oriented relationship than coaching (although it can continue intermittently, over years).
