Information About Stephen - Basingstoke teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Stephen:
A professional author that has published six novels to date as well as holding a masters degree in media writing.
I have been pursuing writing as a career for ten years now, having produced my first novel as the dissertation for my masters course. I primarily work in the SF/F genre, but I have experience in the horror, literary, and noir genres as well. I have experience in constructing stories from flash fiction through to novel length, editing, and eventually pitching to agents.
I have two years experience as a tutor for academics and students, critiquing and editing their manuscripts to ensure they are the best quality possible. I also have experience in critiquing the work of other authors to help them put the final polish on their own work.
I like to take a calm and holistic approach to creative writing. The mechanics of language are not as important as the confidence to find your own voice. I put emphasis on the fundamentals so as to build a strong foundation for your stories, allowing them to unfold naturally as you find your feet in the work. There will be regular practice to build the habit of sitting down to write, as well as the confidence in your own work and the craft of writing.
Above all I aspire to be patient, friendly, and to cater your tuition to your personal needs in the subject.
