Mentoring guidelines


"Every live wire needs an earth and Francesca Tyer has been just that for Destiny’s Boot. To put it another way, if I was adamant that I wanted to swim the Channel, she would be in the support boat with snacks and a compass ... I am incredibly grateful for her voice of reason, technical knowhow."


F. J. Mitchell, first time author

"Francesca is very patient and encouraging. She really helped me gain the tools I needed to write the stories I created. She was truly invested in me doing well on the course and she helped me achieve the grade I wanted."

Sue A, Open University 

"I’m a first-time YA writer.

Francesca has been a great help and encouragement in editing my manuscript focusing me on inconsistencies and highlighting rewrites for me to concentrate on rather than having to grapple with the whole work. I have no hesitation in recommending her services."

Nigel Calvert, first time author
