Coaching and Mentoring

Our coaching services offer the opportunity to have someone support you through the initial phases of your work. The exact nature of the coaching will depend upon your need: for example we could remind you to stick to a pre-agreed series of deadlines; provide encouragement and ideas if you get stuck; and/or help you to develop your first draft through rewrites to a finished piece.

All our coaches are experienced writers who have completed a variety of projects and are skilled in supporting others.

If you’d like to know more, please email us coaches@writingtree.co.uk with an idea of your project and the kind of help you’d like, and we will be happy to give you a quote including an outline of a package we think would suit you.

We also one to one mentoring support online or in person to help you to develop your writing skills, or to support you through a particular project.
Prices start at £25 for a monthly one hour meeting in person in York city centre, or £10 per half hour online chat. This includes reading work of up to 1,000 words in advance. Options can be tailored to individuals. The first meeting costs £35 and includes a full review of your needs and what you want to achieve through the mentoring relationship. If you’re interested, please email us: mentoring@writingtree.co.uk.
