I’m Catherine Johnson and I am  offering a crit of your first 6 thousand words plus a one page synopsis of a novel suitable for 9+, Teen or YA. The crit will take the form of short notes (around 500 words) plus  a skype/facetime chat of around 45 minutes.

I’ve taught creative writing at several universities as well as at Arvon, with the British Council and for Curtis Brown Creative. I written lots of books over a twenty year publishing history. My last novel The Curious Tale of The Lady Caraboo was shortlisted for the YA Book Prize, and Sawbones won best historical fiction for 12+. I’ve also written for film and TV.
