MENTORING is done internationally by Skype and email. Sessions are sliding scale. Please choose a fee from the scale that feels both generous and sustainable, press the “pay now” button, fill in the item description and where it says “item amount,” the amount you are paying. If you are a writer in a developing country or with limited resources who feels resonant with my approach but can’t afford my listed rates, please inquire in the introductory consultation and we will come up with a workable solution. Those who are abundant financially, please be generous and pay at the top of the scale so that I have the means to nurture the voices of those who have access to fewer resources.
FREE 30-MINUTE INTRODUCTORY CONSULTATION | We will discuss your needs related to mentoring and I will answer your questions about my approach so we can see if it is a good fit for us to work together.
