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.
- If you're based in East Anglia and would like face-to-face sessions, check out the National Centre for Writing in Norwich rates and packages with Heidi.
- If you'd like a bespoke mentoring arrangement, mentoring with Heidi through The Poetry School can be set up for any timeframe and arranged to suit you by email, Skype and/or face-t0-face meetings if practicable.
- And for The Full Mentor - from 3 months' to a year's worth of intensive poetry feedback, coaching and manuscript review, with ongoing support by email or telephone, visit The Writing Coach pages.
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.
