Mentoring

“So, what is my story? I don’t know. It’s long and twisted and not quite finished yet.”

I offer mentoring for writers, artists and craft workers:

  • to develop your professional practice
  • for guidance with completion of a specific piece, or body of work
  • to explore a more contextual relationship with your work
  • to integrate strong evaluation methods within projects, and for grant applications

Mentoring differs from coaching in that it focuses on specific aspects of growth and development. The mentor models, to some extent, the ambitions of the mentee; and also examines blocks to growth, encouraging routes to progression.

The Mentoring relationship is more task oriented than coaching, with pace, depth, and frequency of meetings set to reach initial goals. This professional relation might be occasional, regular, or intermittent over months or years.
