NEW: Morgen’s Monday Mentorship!

Are you stuck on your story, novel, poem or non-fiction piece and want expert help?

On 19th March 2018, I created a mentorship group on Facebook offering a dedicated two-hour Q&A where you can pick my brains, with the opportunity for group chat the rest of the week.

It’s a subscription-only closed group with a one-off £20 / US$20 / AS$20 / €20 fee (via PayPal (to morgen@morgenbailey.com) fee. This includes a free full edit on up to 2,000 words (see Editing and Critique) which you can send me at any time (after you’ve subscribed of course).

Once you have paid the one-off fee, go to the group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/morgensmondaymentorship) and ask to join and I will add you.

Every Monday* evening (7.30pm to 9.30pm UK time), I will be your mentor for a two-hour live session when you can ask me anything you like about writing!

Of course it doesn’t stop you asking questions at other times (by creating a new comment) but it won’t be live so you may have to wait for answers. I will keep an eye on the thread and post at least one reply to each comment before the following Monday.

The sooner you subscribe, the more mentorship you receive within the group! I do offer one-to-one email mentorship but there is an extra fee (see the Editing and Critique page).

*There will be occasions when I’m unable to be at my desk on a Monday evening, e.g. when I’m booked to do a ‘real’ talk but I will be available the day before or day after (i.e. the Sunday or Tuesday) at the same time, 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

September’s free 100-word competition now open

*** PLEASE check your word count (100 words exactly – no more, no less – EXcluding title) and submit more than one story to give yourself a better chance of being placed. ***

Hello everyone. Yes, August’s competition – with the theme of ‘ticking’ is now closed, with the results due to be announced this Friday, 8th September. The theme for September is ‘afraid, very afraid’ which you can now submit and any time during until Saturday 30th September (midnight UK time).

And remember, you can send up to three stories per month (individually or at the same time). It’s worth doing because some people have missed out because of errors (usually not 100 words exactly) in the only entry they send so they are immediately disqualified. This happened again last month. <sigh>

September’s theme is ‘afraid, very afraid’ to use however you wish. You can write them whenever you like but don’t send them to me until Friday 1st September.
