Member Only

It is particularly good between courses if you want some space to take on the lessons learned over the past twelve months as you re-write your manuscript.

The plan runs for six months. You may renew your Member Only membership only once for a total of twelve months . However, if you were to join Member Only for six or twelve months after completing Story Foundations, you would also be able to join Member Only for six or twelve months after Work on Your Novel.

£5 per month for six months

Additional costs for monthly check-ins are listed in the Member Only information pack.

If accepted on to Mentoring, you will agree on a schedule of work with your Industry Editor. Your editor will discuss timescale and rates with you before undertaking any editorial. Mentoring is charged at the Industry Editor hourly rate (£60 p/h).

N.B. Mentoring with Imogen Cooper, Founder/Director, is £72 p/h.
