How to be a food journalist, food blogger or cookery writer – one-to-one mentoring

Convinced you can make it as a food writer? Committed to making your dream a reality?  Perhaps you’ve attended a food-writing course in the past but somehow didn’t follow up by sending out any ideas. It takes self-discipline, perseverance, know-how, hard work and confidence.

If you’d like an expert holding your hand – and encouraging you while you make it into print and get established – why not appoint your own personal food-writing mentor. Twenty hours of one-to-one coaching at two-weekly intervals (or to suit you): £3,000.

– detailed feedback on your ideas and which of them are most likely to meet with success
– feedback on where you may be going wrong
– encouragement every step of the way
– help to clarify your goals
– maximisation of your talent
– specialist insider advice on the best websites, magazines and newspapers to try

The course exceeded my expectations and I enjoyed it immensely. Since we met I have taken your feedback and advice on board. Many thanks again for your help and encouragement.’

‘Thank you for a lovely day. I enjoyed the course immensely. I am feeling quite inspired. Your guidelines on writing recipes were most useful and I am now re-doing a number of my recipe packs.’
