Script or fiction writing guidance
Ian is available for all forms of writing consultancy. Having just guided a first time writer through various drafts of their travel book to publication, he is currently helping one new writer in Hong Kong with their memoir, another in the UK with their first script and a writer in Washington with their books for children.
He has also been a supervisor on several MA dissertations for number of Universities in the UK.
Rates are variable as every undertaking is entirely bespoke.
Ian helped me to structure my stories and develop my voice while writing my creative nonfiction memoir. As a first time writer, his tools and strategies were most helpful in helping me bring my stories to life and to create a through line that will help keep my audience engaged!
I approached Ian when I was beginning to draft my memoir about a life changing event. Ian was supportive, sensitive to the subject matter and extremely knowledgeable in helping me turn my rambling notes into a powerful and moving piece of writing.
Ian was super helpful and professional. He spent so much time on my drafts, then debriefed me on how to reshape it, what to strengthen and possible angles to frame the narrative. His suggestions significantly improved the readability and his positive feedback on what was my first venture into writing reassured me that it was worth doing, as well as generating enthusiasm for continuing after this book. Ian also gave me contacts for other professional services which i had not really thought of as a first time author, and advice on the whole process.
