Charity Advent Feedback Special

Add a little festive sparkle to your writing

Gold wrapped advent parcels with tags for each day and fairy lights

Each day in Advent I’m offering feedback on work up to 1,000 words in return for donations to charity of at least £5.

When all the advent feedback slots are booked, one lucky author’s name will be drawn from a Christmas Hat to receive a taster three-month mentoring/coaching package.

How to participate

Tweet @NivenAudrey or email thepropellingpencil@gmail.com to secure your spot on the Advent Calendar.
When your space is confirmed, make your donation to any charity of your choice.

Minimum donation is £5 to enable as many people as possible to participate. If you are able to donate more, please do!

Forward your donation receipt to thepropellingpencil@gmail.com with your piece of writing.
You can send 1,000 words maximum: flash fiction, opening of a short story, opening of a novel, a synopsis, or a piece of creative/narrative non-fiction.

All participants will go into the draw and one lucky writer will win a free three-month taster package of mentoring/coaching.

Terms & Conditions

Donations must be made within 48 hrs of slots being confirmed, otherwise the slot will be made available to another writer.
The mentoring/coaching package offered has no cash equivalent, but there may be the opportunity to pass it on to another writer if you don’t wish to take it up yourself.
Feedback will be brief and focus on key areas to think about. As with any editorial advice, it’s up to you what you take from it – it’s only one (experienced) reader’s opinion!
