Prose Developmental Edit with Sam
Writers from underrepresented backgrounds* can purchase developmental editing sessions with a mentor on our team. All of our mentors have experience with creative writing workshops and editing.
Please provide a Google Doc link to your submission when booking. Your mentor will edit your work within two weeks of you making a booking and will send it back to you via email with an editorial report. In the editorial report, your mentor will highlight any key issues to help you improve your creative writing overall. You will also be given suggestions on how to improve.
The person displayed as the event speaker will be your mentor. We strongly recommend booking in for a session with a mentor whose specialism aligns with the work you are submitting (click on the mentor’s picture to see what their specialisms are).
