I have been very fortunate during my early writing years to have had the very best of tutors. I owe much of my writing success to Marg McAclister who was my first writing tutor and continues to mentor me, along with many other writers who’ve been fortunate enough to receive her help and advice.
It is my wish and delight to help other beginning writers on their writing journeys. Please contact me if you’d like some advice about writing or getting published. I will also proofread your story so that you are able to send it off to a publisher knowing that it’s as polished as it can be.
One of the scariest things I’ve ever done was to send off my first piece of writing to Marg for her assessment. I needn’t have worried and neither do you. For those of us who love writing, seeing another person’s writing can only be a joy. Although I’ll be honest with you about your writing, I’ll also be as positive as I can be, concentrating on your writing strengths while giving advice about how to improve where necessary.

June pushed, pulled and advised in a friendly and professional manner and it seemed in no time I had a story published, as well as short articles. Also, I now have a stream of requests for such diverse things as C.Vs, Letters to Editors on others’ behalf, and even Meeting Notes for those presenting Petitions to Parliamentarians.
You wish for professional writing? Give June a go!
Many thanks, June, for the help you gave me during the recent Creative Writing Course I did on the Internet. I was very fortunate to have an Editor who gave good, constructive criticisms of my essays and stories and showed me the finer points of writing. Due to your help, one of my stories was chosen for publication in a Seniors’ Writers’ Anthology, and an essay was published in an E-
