Course Overview

Mentoring is by invitation only and run on an hourly, ad hoc rate with your editor.

During Golden Egg Mentoring, writers work closely and intensively with a top industry editor. Keeping the child reader in mind, writers learn how to fine tune each component of their work-in-progress to ensure every layer of their novel is of the highest standard. Writers will also develop ideas for their submission package for Golden Egg’s exclusive First Look deals with Chicken House Publishing and The Shaw Agency.



In order to be invited to join a top industry editor for Mentoring, writers must have strong concept, through-line and character goals as well as demonstrating a promising voice. Please note that at Mentoring stage we are not just looking for a strong voice or an excellent concept or a well thought through plot, but all three.
