Creative Writing and Publishing graduate offering creative writing lessons up to university level online.

Methodology

My lessons are based on improving one's written voice and becoming confident in taking on large projects. I work with anyone, novice - degree level, and at any stage of their writing process. If you simply need someone to read your writing and offer workshopping, or someone to help you get started on the novel you've always dreamed of writing, get in touch!

Background

I am a Creative Writing and Publishing graduate with a first class degree. A large party of my university experience revolved around workshopping other students' writing and giving them pointers to create the best piece of writing possible.

I have worked with a range of publishers, such as Crimson and Scryfa. I currently work as a social media manager and publicist assistant, whilst working on my own novel.

Jessie is patient, informed, knowledgeable, and encouraging, with a terrific eye for detail and a flare for finding just the right phrase – I've learned a huge amount from her over the years.

Matthew

Jessie has helped me with numerous projects, proving her worth as both an excellent close reader of my work and also a talented creative herself.

She has a wide scoping interest, and is more than happy to give feedback on even the wackiest of ideas. In the past, she's helped me produce copy for magazines, edit articles, edit a series of poems and facilitate a workshop for my novel-in-progress.

She was never once judgemental of my work, even in first draft, and I can't wait to keep using her services as my portfolio grows.
