‘Liz is really generous with the detail and depth of her comments, is incisive about what isn’t working, and creative in finding new approaches to problems with plot and characterisation. She has genuinely helped me to take a new approach to my writing, and as a result the mentoring course has felt like a writing lifeline.’ Sean Lusk, Mentoring Programme 2019-20
