“So, what is my story? I don’t know. It’s long and twisted and not quite finished yet.”
I offer mentoring for writers, and creative practitioners:
- to develop your professional practice
- for guidance with completion of a specific piece of work, 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 creative work, skills and requirements for the development of the writer / practitioner. The mentor models, to some extent, the ambitions of the mentee; and also examines obstacles towards growth and change, and encourages routes to progression.
The Mentoring relationship is more task oriented than coaching. This professional relationship might be occasional, regular, or intermittent over months or years.
