Coaching/ Mentoring

Coaching - any genre

Heidi qualified as a Writing Coach through RD1st in affiliation with the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE) and the Arvon foundation. She is a professional member of the Association for Coaching, specialising in Writing Coaching. 

She coaches writers of all levels - in Norfolk through the National Centre for Writing and UK/world-wide through The Writing Coach. Writing coaching can help with blocks, issues, ambitions, confidence, doubts and decisions. Whether you are a beginner just finding your way or an experienced writer needing to resolve issues or keep motivated, writing coaching can help.  Find out more.

Mentoring - poetry

If you're looking for 1:1 support to help you develop, including detailed feedback on your writing, Heidi mentors poets from 'beginner' to post-MA and/or published and established writers. 

Feedback on your poetry

If you're looking for editorial feedback on your work only, Heidi runs 1:1 Poetry Surgeries by Skype for The Poetry Society. If you've got a handful of poems (up to 6 or 15o lines total), you'd like feedback on from an experienced poet, informed and supportive reader, and fellow writer with a creative writing tutor's practised eye, then this is for you.

Heidi also offers feedback on your manuscript through The Writing Coach. If you have an embryonic pamphlet or collection, or simply a mass of work you would like detailed professional feedback on, check out rates and details of the Reader's Report you'll receive over at The Writing Coach.  

Coaching/ Mentoring on Becoming a Writer-in-Residence

Heidi runs day schools on how to become a Writer-in-Residence. If you would like to book the day school for your writing group or institution, or you would like 1:1 mentoring for this, please contact Heidi for more details.
