Work With Me

1:1 Poetry Mentoring

1:1 Poetry Mentoring

When you’re not part of a structured writing programme it can be difficult to get the kind of feedback you need to get your work polished and ready to submit, (that’s why I’m part of a poetry group!) Send me a selection of your poetry and I’ll provide tailored individual feedback, suggestions and comments.

How does it work?

  • Get in touch for an initial conversation about your voice, themes and what you’re trying to achieve with your poetry.
  • You’ll send me up to 4 poems and I’ll provide detailed feedback.
  • We can address form, structure, tone, clarity and phrasing.
  • I’m also happy to recommend upcoming competitions and give some pointers on submitting to a publishing house, if that’s what you’d like.
  • Whether you’d rather chat over email, or video call, think of it as a virtual cuppa!

£50 for up to 4 poems

I highly recommend Mari as a poetry mentor. Warm and knowledgeable, with a keen poetic and artistic eye, Mari also helped and encouraged me to believe in my own voice and ideas. She has been so important to my development as a poet. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Working with Mari has been invaluable to my growth as a poet. Her guidance has helped me to hone my poetic voice, and through her line edits of my work I have better understood how to polish my pieces, and to lay them out in the most affective way. I would thoroughly recommend working with Mari if you want to improve your poetry through a fresh and informed perspective, and want detailed feedback which will push your writing to be the best it can be.
