Mentoring Writers Resource Box podcasts offer new and developing authors assistance as they travel their writing journey (whether self- or traditionally published). We mentor adult writers of all ages worldwide while mentoring under 18's through our sister organisation Kids4Kids.org.uk. With over thirty years’ experience as an award-winning author, speaker, writing mentor, and publishing consultant our Principle Mentor, Ann Brady, offers practical tips which will help new writers open the door to discovering the many facets of creating, developing and writing a book. We also offer advice on marketing and the publishing aspect of the writing process. Each of the 10-to-20-minute episodes are fact-based, conversational mentoring sessions which will help keep you focused, increase your confidence, and bolster your creativity whilst helping you write.
