Where possible our tutorials are in person, one-to-one. In circumstances where tutorials in person aren’t possible, we are happy to arrange skype tutorials.

Picture book and Fiction Editorial Feedback

(with Alice Corrie) 

These sessions are for anyone with a children’s book manuscript or story idea. This can either be for for a picture book project OR a fiction project.

During the session Alice will offer feedback on your story and answer any questions you may have about your book idea. Alice will also be able to provide notes on the publishing industry and the current market, and answer any industry related questions you may have.


Before all consultations with Alice, we will need for you to send over some information. This is so Alice can prepare for the session - getting to know a bit more about you, and reading over your story to make notes. 

We will need everyone who books a consultation to send over the following:

  • Completed sign up form (this will be emailed over to you when you book) 
  • Text with synopsis. Full text to be supplied for picture books. First 4 chapters to be supplied for fiction. 

For follow-up consultations, Alice will advise what needs to be sent in advance of the session.

How do I sign up?
There are different options for your session with Alice (in terms of the exact format of the session) If you are interested in booking, you can download our leaflet, which details everything you need to know.

 
If you then have any questions about what will be best for you, do let us know and we can offer advice.
