Mentoring and Nurturing

As part of our course we have one to one mentoring with either David or Sam.   This is another difference from other creative writing courses and after only one session I can see the value of such a provision.  We are even allowed to send up to 5,000 words at a time prior to a session if we want more robust and in-depth editing/mentoring.

Obviously at this early stage there is not much for me to say about my mentoring, however I can tell you that Sam’s office on the ground floor is lovely and bright with two big windows, and contains a bookcase (full), a number of wall mounted shelves for books (full) and the entire space under her desk for leg room (full of books piled to the underneath of the desk).  Hilarious!  I half expected to see a pile of books used as chairs and coffee tables.  I bet the boys in her life never offered to carry her books for fear of hernias and slipped discs.
