Project Description


One-to-one writing support

Do you want to write, but don’t know where to start? Are you feeling overwhelmed, or perhaps your writing project has stalled?

The Writers’ Cafe mentors can help you get started (or back on track!), and guide you through any issues you’re having with your story and your writing. We offer a series of structured mentoring sessions, designed to get you well on the way with your writing project. The content of the sessions will be tailored by your mentor to suit your needs, to make sure you get the maximum benefit from the time spent with your mentor.

Our writing mentors are friendly local writers, who have themselves been through the process of writing a novel, from having that first idea to submitting a novel to an agent. They know the ups and downs of that journey first-hand, and are familiar with the issues that aspiring writers face day-to-day.

If you think you would benefit from working with a writing mentor, please get in touch and tell us a little bit about yourself and your project, or pop in for an informal chat with one of our mentors at our Monday evening pop-up cafe.

$60 / 1-hour mentoring session

$250 / booking of five sessions
