Mentor Service for Authors, Writers and Editors

Mentoring for Writing and Editing

Carolyn Beaumont Carolyn Beaumont

A mentor is a supporter of writers but never a dictator.
With quiet encouragement and gentle suggestion, a mentor can assist a writer to complete a poem, short story, novel, play, family history or biography.
A mentor can assist with mental blocks. There are solutions.
A mentor can discuss characters, dialogues, plots, settings and themes.
A mentor can be a sounding wall for a writer to bounce off ideas, sentence structures, chapter sequences, legal and ethical issues.
The corporate or self-publishing processes require manuscripts to be thoroughly edited and then proofread at printing stage.
A mentor can offer an objective view of structural balance and a fresh eye on line (or copy) editing of the text.
A mentor can advise on communications between authors and publishers/printers and discuss changes that may be advised.
A mentor can guide an author through the proofreading stage to final publication.  
An effective mentor knows that the final decision must always be the author’s decision.
