Creative co-mentoring for writers
Field, Victoria and Stoner, Angela
Find out all about creative co-mentoring and how it can support your practice as a writer. The fifth in the literaturetraining 'Briefings' series.
Using techniques such as flow writing, drawing and working with images, Victoria Field and Angela Stoner set up a creative co-mentoring relationship to support their practice as writers and writing tutors. They found it to be a liberating, empowering and illuminating process and in this fascinating article, they talk frankly about the experience and the impact it's had on their careers. They also offer detailed guidance so you can embark on your own creative co-mentoring journey. There are tips on how to set up a creative co-mentoring relationship, how to structure the process and a list of books offering ideas for exercises and activities that you can use.

Victoria Field is a writer, poetry therapist and small press publisher based in Cornwall.

Angela Stoner is a writer, poet, storyteller and writing tutor.

Both are longstanding members of Lapidus, the membership organization which promotes the benefits of the literary arts for personal development, health and well-being.

literaturetraining briefings are 'how to' factsheets to support the creative and business aspects of being a writer.  

Current titles cover online marketing, time management, fundraising for writing projects, and the creative art of blogging. Coming soon: writing and regeneration (in collaboration with UrbanWords and NALD), marketing for writers and how to make an effective submission.
