Novelist John Dean is running an online mentoring and writing workshop programme for aspiring authors.

John, who is based in Dumfries and Galloway, has had sixteen crime novels published and is with London-based The Book Folks. He is a co-director of Inscribe Media Limited, which is running the programmes.

John, who also runs creative writing courses, said: “Writing can be a lonely pastime and our programmes help writers tackle some of the many challenges that it throws up. “We focus on major issues, such as how a story hangs together, what characters are doing or could be doing, what is hurting a story’s momentum and what story elements are not pulling their weight.

“We identify the differences between good and great writing and point out an author’s strengths and weaknesses so that they become more confident.

“We help authors establish good processes and writing goals and suggest markets for their work.”

The programme includes long-term mentoring and short writing courses. More information is available at http://inscribemedia.co.uk/writing-courses---bespoke-mentoring.html
