Writing Tuition

Do you want to know more about writing a picture book? Do you have a picture book text that you want to develop? My own writing schedule permitting, I will be happy to help by means of individual and group tuition and mentoring.

How it usually works is that you send me a single text in the first instance. I will read it and send back a written appraisal of the text, with feedback on plot, character, style, language, rhyming (if applicable) overall flow and so on. I am happy to tailor my assessment to your individual needs.

You can book me for a minimum of one hour, which is sufficient for a basic report. My rates for editing/mentoring are £100 for the first hour and £75 per subsequent hour.

For longer than two hours please contact me to discuss. Likewise for face-to-face sessions via FaceTime/Skype.

I generally request payment upfront and undertake to assess your work within the following couple of days.

I am also happy to consider group tuition and masterclasses. I have taught for the Arvon Foundation and am regularly invited as guest speaker / masterclass leader by the Golden Egg Academy. Please contact me to discuss rates/fees etc.

If you are interested in individual or group tuition please message me via my Facebook page PeterBentlyAuthor, or via my agent, Jodie Hodges (JHodges@unitedagents.co.uk). You can also contact me on Twitter – @PeterBently.
