Definition of Mentoring

"Mentoring is a professional relationship with a sympathetic writer, for a timetabled duration, whose focus is your work and how you can raise it to a new level."

S Maitland & M Goodman, Mentoring: a guide for creative writers

Definition of Coaching

"Coaching is all about helping a person get to where they want to be in their professional or personal life. The writer/client is in control – they decide what they want to focus on."
