Short Story Writers – New Service

Photopin writing frameDue to popular demand I have added a mentoring option for those who are just starting out writing short stories. Perhaps you would like to attend a creative writing class, but just don’t have the time, or maybe you just require feedback as and when you are working on a specific project, so you may not want to commit to a whole term of evening classes. With this option you receive one-to-one advice while you are writing what you want to write, at a time that suits you.

I will work through a maximum of three drafts of a short story with you, and you will be able to ask me questions or to expand on any comments on your manuscript. I will be able to go into more detail about why certain things are suggested, improving your writing skills for future projects.

For more experienced writers the details for short story appraisals can be found HERE.

My fees can be found HERE.

reVamped Writing

Writing white frameHi, my name is Julia, and welcome to reVamp Your Writing. No, that’s not a typo in my title. Let me explain.

reVamped is a developmental editing and mentoring service – primarily aimed at horror writers and those writing paranormal or supernatural fiction, but I do take other genres. However, horror is my first love – I don’t think good horror fiction can be beaten. If you want to know if your scary short story really is scary, I’ll tell you. Do your vampires have bite? I’ll tell you. If they don’t, I’ll tell you why.

My feedback may be somewhat blunter than Dracula’s teeth, but an honest, impartial opinion is vital if we are to improve as writers. I’ll tell it like it is, but I won’t bite too hard. Take a look at what is available on the site, and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any queries.

From time to time I will post relevant articles or submission calls for horror writers on this page, so please check back… or ‘follow’ me into the dark…

Remember – I don’t spend all my time lurking in the dark – I am also happy to read other genres. More details can be found HERE. To find out more about me click HERE.
