For Writers

Tamsyn is currently offering the following Writer Support Services:

Submission Package Critique Service

Designed to give you the edge when submitting to agents and editors. Tamsyn will read your first three chapters (up to 10,000 words), your synopsis and query letter and offer advice on what you're doing right, as well as what can be improved. You will receive an annotated copy of your opening chapters\synopsis, with strengths and weaknesses highlighted, and a detailed written report. Prices from £100.

Complete Manuscript Appraisal Service

Open to Picture Books, Middle Grade, Teen/Young Adult and adult fiction. You'll receive an annotated copy of your manuscript, plus written feedback and advice on where it might stand in the market. The overall cost depends on the length of your manuscript but a good rule of thumb is 1p per word, so a 25,000 word manuscript would come in at £250. Picture Book prices by negotiation.

12 Week One-to-One Mentoring

Twelve weeks of one-to-one mentoring, designed to encourage you to finish that early draft. You'll have weekly deadlines to submit up to 5,000 words - Tamsyn will offer written feedback, plus a 30 minute phone chat to discuss your writing each week. Prices start from £750 for the full twelve weeks - payable in advance in full or in three instalments.

6 Week Picture Book Mentoring

Six weekly mentoring sessions covering a number of picture book texts, designed to help writers build up a portfolio of strong stories. You'll get written feedback and the opportunity to chat things through on the phone with Tamsyn each week. Prices start at £375 for the full six weeks - payable in advance in full or in two instalments.
