Author of Dancing with Statues
I came to Jacqui with an early draft of my first novel. Her feedback was detailed, constructive and well thought out. She was able to point out and explain to me exactly what was and wasn’t working. I had previously taken a few writing courses and read lots of books on creative writing. However, I learned more from studying Jacqui’s feedback on my work than any course. Her comments not only improved that particular novel but they also made me a better writer in general.
Caroline worked with me as a Writing Coach, then returned to our consultancy once she had redrafted, this time working with Writing Coach consultant Kate Lyall-Grant who completed a full report on Caroline’s novel. Both Kate and I are delighted to see Caroline’s work in print!
