"Gail has been a mentor extraordinaire in my transition from writing academic non-fiction to historical fiction. Her critiques of my writing are always incredibly insightful and consistently encouraging. It has been a superb intellectual and creative experience to work with Gail on my first novel."
— Wenona Giles, PhD, FRSC, Professor Emerita Anthropology, York University, Toronto
This one-on-one, private, four-month online mentorship is for newbies, emerging writers and pros. Monthly submission deadlines keep you producing, while Gail’s direction keeps you on track.
There are no assignments or writing prompts. Gail focuses solely on your project and your specific writing needs. You have the option of booking more sessions to complete your project.
Four-month sessions start in January, May and September, but if you'd like to start at a different time, contact Gail's office and we'll do our best to fit you into Gail's schedule.
For more or to put your name on the interest list, contact Gail's office at email@example.com.
The cost of one four-month (four session) mentorship: $975 plus GST/HST (of your province). Again, that includes free access to Gail's creative writing course -- a $250 saving!
Purchase to register and we'll get right back to you with details.
Once you've paid to reserve your spot, the fee will not be reimbursed in whole or in part, so please make sure you can commit to your chosen dates. Not sure? Book a meet and greet session to discuss which of Gail's services are right for you.
For a sample of the fiction mentorship, you can also try one of Gail's blue pencil sessions. Not your average blue pencil session, this is a single session workshop just like what you'd experience in the mentorship. Book a blue pencil session any time.
Grants for writers can often be used for professional development, like this mentorship. Check out the grants available from the Canada Council for the Arts and provincial arts councils to see if you are eligible for this funding.
