A one-to-one feedback session with me offers a relaxed chat about your work. I’ll read up to 150 lines of your poetry in advance and we’ll chat about them for an hour. I have lots of teaching experience, and I love reading people’s work. I can’t wait to read yours.

It’s a unique opportunity to support you to identify strategies for developing your writing, editing and submitting it. We might discuss problems you may be experiencing and look at ways to take your work forward.

I love working with all writers – whether you’re beginning of your writing life, or if you’re more experienced.

At the moment I’m doing my 121 sessions on Zoom.

The sessions cost £75 – which includes me reading your work in advance and a one hour session on Zoom.

If you’d like a 121 session, please email me to arrange a good date and time for us both:

“My first 121 session with Laurie was the most encouraging and helpful hour I have spent talking about my poetry so far. Laurie celebrated my writing and provided constructive feedback in a way that made it very clear on how I could grow and strengthen the poems we discussed. 

Laurie gave me focus and inspired me to submit three of the poems to a handful of publications and journals. 
I now feel confident to continue submitting my poems and to build towards a pamphlet.”
