Naomi Foyle has mentored three first poetry collections, and edited seven others. As a mentor she works with a poet in depth, identifying strengths and weaknesses in the work, giving reading suggestions, and helping the writer to plan a professional approach to editors. As both mentor and editor Naomi takes a sensitive but thorough approach, both respecting the writer’s voice, and helping to hone work on the page. For further details of poetry and prose mentoring/editing at an hourly rate (approximately six poems / 3000 words of prose per hour) please contact Naomi here
