I enjoy working with writers who are passionate about their writing and have a commitment to developing their craft.
We could work together in a couple of different ways:
I read and give written feedback on manuscripts – fiction and non fiction. This includes feedback on plot, character, style, narrative, language, setting etc. You may have a short story that just needs a little finessing and a one off read could do the trick or you may have a longer work that you require feedback on more than once.
Fees for Reading & Providing Written Feedback only:
(Fiction & Non Fiction)
Up to 2,000 words - £35
Up to 4,000 words - £45
Feedback on longer works by arrangement
I am also available to work closer with you to give feedback on your writing and/or your writing process. This would involve written feedback as above, plus up to an hour to meet either in person, by phone or via email. Skype is also an option if we are geographically challenged!
Fees for Reading & Meeting
(Fiction & Non Fiction)
Up to 2,000 words £45
Up to 4,000 words £55
Written feedback for both options above would include comments on specific script aspects given in a clear and constructive manner directly onto your script, plus an ‘overall’ summary of the key areas requiring further development, and guidance on how to tackle this.
For a longer work or full draft of a novel/memoir please get in touch to discuss.
Testimonials from writers I have tutored/worked with
‘My first novel would never have been completed had it not been for the one-to-one help and advice of an inspirational tutor and mentor – Jacq Molloy. My first steps into the world of creative writing were quite scary. These fears soon evaporated with the knowledge and guidance of Jacq – a truly uplifting tutor and mentor.’
'Jacq is an enthusiastic teacher. Her feedback on work is constructive and encouraging and she is extremely helpful in fixing problems whether it be with story structure, plot, characterisation or in finding a much needed exact right phrase or word.. She has given me the confidence to start my first novel - and to stick with it - something I've not managed to do before.'
‘I found Jacq Molloy to be an inspirational teacher. I've attended her courses for the past 4 years and she has helped me improve and develop as a writer. She instils her vast knowledge and love of writing into you in the most entertaining and informative way. She boosts your confidence as a writer with a steady and caring hand. I can't recommend her highly enough.’
