Creative writing feedback 

'I believe more in the scissors than I do the pencil.' Truman Capote

Lisa has been involved in all levels of creative writing assessment for ten years and offers feedback in creative writing (particularly prose fiction, script and screenwriting and memoir). Anyone may submit their work electronically, including beginning writers whose first language is not English.

Short story/memoir (3,000 words max.) -  30 (or 28)

Longer fiction (first 3 chapters plus synopsis 15,000 words max.) - 65 (or 60)

Complete manuscript (up to 80,000 words) - 210 (195)

For this you will receive a detailed report together with comments on your manuscript. The main narrative points covered are structure, character, point of view, research, dialogue, description and general use of language. Depending on your priorities, advice will be given in order to maximise your chances of publishing. Lisa can also offer help self-publishing using Lulu - an independent print-on-demand publisher - and proof-read a manuscript if required.

Publish your book

One to one tuition based around your individual needs as a writer is also available. An initial tutorial to determine your aims is offered free of charge. Thereafter, the cost is 25 euros per tutorial (approximately 1 hour). You may submit up to 2,000 words for discussion each tutorial.
