Welcome fellow seekers, travellers and writers.
If you are passionate about writing a spiritual memoir, a spiritually focused novel, a spiritual travel memoir (my favourite) or any form of genre on spirituality or travel and are looking for a writing mentor – you are in the right place.
I have devoted my life to writing, spirituality, travel, research and blogging, and occasionally I mentor a writer who is developing a manuscript (or has the first draft ready) on the above areas of passion. I have decided to offer this service after my own experience of writing and publishing a spiritual travel memoir, many short stories, an e-book, and many scholarly pieces – as well as blogs on spirituality. During this process I have realised there is hardly any mentorship offered for writing focused on spirituality.
Although I have been successful with my literary short stories, when I turned to writing about spirituality all my support network from within the literary milieu disappeared. Suddenly, I was on my own, faced with people who either could not relate to the new themes of my work or could not understand or value it. It was a shocking and discouraging experience. This service is aimed at sharing my experiences on that journey and supporting writers with similar spiritual inclinations.
