This is an opportunity to forge ahead with your work in progress. You will be paired with a leading author for a series of fortnightly one-on-one consultation sessions to discuss your work, and help you negotiate the roadblocks and challenges you might be facing. The sessions provide a forum to keep you accountable for producing work to regular deadlines. Consider the author we connect you with as a partner to provide guidance and important feedback.
The writer will review a sample of your work and help you build a project plan, discuss your work in progress and provide rolling feedback as each fortnight you submit a new piece of writing. Meetings will be held face-to-face via video conferencing.
This specialist service will also include a professional copy edit of your work in progress from an experienced Senior Editor at Allen & Unwin. You will receive two rounds of edits on a piece of 3000 words, getting it in shape ahead of potential submissions.
This program is designed for a writer looking to develop the start of their manuscript, strengthen a single chapter or to work on a standalone longform work.
This opportunity would be ideal for a writer of literary fiction or literary nonfiction.
