It can be a lot more fun to keep writing if you know you've got a helpful, friendly place to come for feedback. The group works like this: once every fortnight, we meet for a 1.5 hour session at the Skriva studio. Three days before the session, three members of the group send a piece of writing around the group by e-mail. At the session, the tutor provides detailed feedback on the three pieces of writing, and the other group members also give their feedback. We usually expect you to send about 2,000 words, and your work will be being read twice or more over the course.
Our editorial groups have a maximum of 9 people and are all led by working writers. You can be at any stage of your writing, to join us. We've had some fantastic comments from our old students on the helpfulness of tutor feedback for finding the right way to get their story on the page - please see our Testimonials section.
