Creative Writing job with Amelia:
Over 2 hrs/week - Hi,
I am currently writing a story for my creative writing class and it is based on theories of laughter. The theory I'm focusing on is superiority theory, which in a nutshell is when we make a joke out of other's suffering and find it amusing. My aim is to begin the story in this way, but let the ending subvert it the reader expectations.
The story I want to write is based on an urban legend, where villagers have inscribed on their doors 'Nale Ba' (come tomorrow) to ward off an evil witch who wants to kill men. The main outline is that there is a mysogynistic character called Derry, who sees women as sexual objects, not human beings. He gets a kick out of treating them badly. In the end, he invites one of the women he likes home, where during sex he finds out she is actually the witch. Her revenge is that she that she lets him live, but her vagina essentially swallows his penis, emasculating him for life.
I would like help in making my story line stronger, so strenthening the plot line itself, then just writing it up. The limit is 2000 words so its a very short story!
Hope someone can help me out as deadline is very soon!
STELLA's last review in Creative Writing from Amelia: brainstorming Fantastic! Really helped me with understanding a difficult concept and did it with such ease! Great tutor.
I have tutored GCSE, A-level, Degree and Doctorate-level students on a range of subjects, although my main focus has been Psychology, Sociology, academic writing skills, Business Studies and Research Methods. I have written model essays for exam boards, proofread and edited work to be published, and worked on many dissertations and PhDs with university students.
For Psychology and Sociology, I adopt a systematic approach, and generally like to go over the material thoroughly, testing the student throughout, and spend time on previous exam papers and questions, planning essay answers, discussing how theories relate to real-life situations etc. I sometimes mind-map various themes and ideas with the student, and think outside the box as it were, to make sure that the ideas stem from the student's own work and thinking - so that they can remember it more fully and develop it in future (often students have more knowledge, ideas and insight than they realise, it just needs coaxing out of them!). I often tutor on coursework as well as examination preparation.

Creative Writing job with Christine Rhiannon:
I am wondering if anyone would be interested in giving me some offline written feedback on some poems I have written for my creative writing module? My poems are not marked much on quality as there is a greater focus on the editing process of my poems. So I'd like to get some feedback on how I could change my poems and then I can make some of these changes and then write about these changes within my poetry journal. I'd also be interested in perhaps getting some recommendations for poems/poets (preferably contemporary) who could be relevant to the work I have done (my poems are all about isolation so I am looking for more poets that deal with that theme). That way I can mention them in my writing.
Overall I have 17 poems that I need feedback for and my deadline is in 12 days. So I'd like to find someone that can help me fairly soon, as once I edit my poems I need to then write about the changes within my poem (this will be roughly an extra 4000 words, I might need help when I get to this stage too, though I am not sure yet).
