swooshGroup mentoring work sessions

This is not a writing group. Think of this time as precious time to focus on planning, producing, marketing and self publishing with your own cheer squad of like-minded, genuinely interested, aspiring fellow authors. We celebrate, commiserate and cheer each other on.

Group mentoring work sessions give you precious time to focus on your writing project in a  safe and supportive environment. You can air and share your frustrations and challenges and seek feedback about your publishing projects, marketing plans and campaigns.

Authentic connections and community is created in group work sessions. Everyone has opportunity to have their ideas discussed and issues explored and we learn from and support each other. You’ll receive practical and professional guidance from Sue and focus on practical tasks to keep momentum with your work.
