Tina McElroy Ansa, author of the best-selling novels, Baby of the Family, Ugly Ways, The Hand I Fan With and You Know Better, is now available for one-on-one mentoring sessions with serious writers seeking to hone their craft, polish their novels and short stories, non-fiction and memoirs and navigate the world of publishing. In other words, the award-winning writer will act as the midwife who helps writers bring forth their work.
In half-hour telephone sessions and one-hour face-to-face sessions, the award-winning author will offer advice, guidance and suggestions on::
- Writing skills
- How to find an agent
- How to find the right editor
- How to cut through the confusion and stay focused
- Choosing the best story line
- Focusing on plot, character, theme, flow
- How to make the most of your notes, ideas, experiences and memories
- Organization of ideas
- Organized writing
The methods to reach the goal of good solid writing and publishable fiction and non-fiction are specific. However, each author’s needs are unique. And the way to fulfill those needs is with strict focused attention. It is that specific and particular attention that Ms. Ansa will bring to each mentoring session.
Mentoring is a time-honored way for writing teachers/instructors to give writers and writing students the individual and focused attention their work deserves.
Over the last fifteen years, emerging and beginning writers have asked over and over for tips and direction for their writing. These scheduled mentoring sessions are a way for the serious writer to take advantage of a well-known author’s knowledge, skills and experiences.
The fee for the sessions also includes a pre-evaluation of a 10 to 15 page sample of the client’s work so that the entire working time can be devoted to discussion of the work and the work process.
Using the skills she has employed in writing her own critically acclaimed novels, Tina McElroy Ansa will bring the same serious consideration to your work.
Ms. Ansa has successfully coached/mentored beginning writers as well as established writers in the craft of writing and editing that she has practiced for more than thirty years.
If you have been looking for that one method to put your writing project on track, a mentoring session could be the key.
Tina McElroy Ansa is certain that her skills and talent can help you!
