Co będziecie robić

Are you an aspiring writer? Would you like to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your storytelling while visiting New Orleans, the most literary and evocative city in the USA? Be inspired by your time here, as we meet in the French Quarter, the iconic heartbeat of the city that inspired generations of writers, from William Faulkner to Tennessee Williams to Anne Rice.

Whether you need help with the start of your novel, you need a push to get started, or maybe you just enjoy the craft of writing, I can help you improve, sharpen and strengthen your skills in a focused one-on-one setting.

We will meet in a coffee shop frequented by the locals, and I will buy you a beverage while I give you honest but constructive feedback. My professional critique will explain what you did right, what you did wrong, and most importantly, how it can be improved.

Give me a complete tale, a small part of a story, or simply stream-of-consciousness musings. Bring your writing with you or email me in advance - you decide the amount of time I spend on reading versus discussion, and you ask the questions you want answered.

I suggest you provide about 1,500 words (probably six pages) for me to critique. I think that is enough to discern your strengths and weaknesses, but you are welcome to give me more or less. But remember the more I read in advance, the less time we have for our meeting.

I'm originally from Northern Ireland but have lived in New Orleans since 2004. I've written two books, one for the biggest publisher in the South and the other commissioned by a New York publisher. Both were critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic and I won a Tennessee Williams / New Orleans Literary Festival writers’ award. I've taught fiction-writing courses in New Orleans for more than a decade, initially at Loyola University's Walker Percy Center, while for the last seven years I have ran my own writing classes. At least six of my students have gone onto become published authors.

Gdzie będziecie

My default meeting place is a locals' coffee shop away from the tourist hordes on Bourbon Street. It is busy enough to have an energy, but rarely too packed to find seating. HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE - I am happy to come to you if you prefer. Want to meet outdoors in Jackson Square, or overlooking the Mississippi? Want me to come to your Uptown airbnb or your CBD hotel lobby? As long as you are staying in the city, I can bring the experience to you.

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. Here is what he had to say: Stephan was great! He gave me very useful information and took the time to write notes and edit the pages I sent him. He showed me how to improve my story and was passionate and encouraged me to keep going with my story. I would very much enjoy another meeting with Stephen. He is honest and upfront. A great value & I highly recommend meeting w/ Stephen.

Stephen gave me specific advice on how to make my writing better. It was exactly what I hoped for--concrete feedback on improvement. He was also encouraging, even when providing the constructive feedback.

Stephen’s writing advice was—and will continue to be—incredibly helpful. Perfect balance of technical and personalized information and recommendations. He’s a clear communicator and a great listener, with a wealth of knowledge about the writing process. This was an absolute bargain—highly recommended.

Stephen saved my novel! I was stuck at the beginning of my story and had lots of questions about development. Stephen’s advice was invaluable. I was nervous about the meeting at first, but talking to him was easy and he made me feel very comfortable. He thoroughly addressed all the areas I was struggling in and now I feel ready to write again.

Stephen was great! Some of his advice, I was expecting to hear. He gave me tips on how to improve my writing that I believe will take me to the next level! I was nervous and didn't know what to expect at first, but Stephen made me feel comfortable.
