Mentorship & Teaching

I can offer my services in person in Glasgow and/or over (video) calls. Please contact me for rates and to enquire about availability. I apply reduced rates for writers who are in financial need; simply add *WriterPal* to the subject line when you write to me, no questions asked.

You can email me at margaux[at]


I offer mentorships to writers for two, four, six or twelve hours taken in either 1- or 2-hour slots. Please contact me for rates and to discuss what a mentorship would look like – a blend of motivation, editorial feedback, accountability and brainstorm, depending on where you’re at with your writing project(s). 

I specialise in helping authors to find their voice and I’m particularly keen to mentor writers who work across languages. For more information about my writing, see my about page. Before switching to freelance, I worked as a translation rights agent for a London-based literary agency for seven years, where I read, gave feedback and pitched manuscripts, and I can help with preparing a package for submission to agents. 

If you’ve been looking for someone to help you get started or unblock a project, get in touch and we’ll take it from there. When you write to me, it’d be helpful to know more about you and what you’re after with this mentorship, whether it’s general guidance or you’ve a specific project in mind (I can integrate a manuscript or proposal assessment as part of the mentorship programme).

French classes

I’m French and I teach le français!

I’m passionate about language and I believe that each student learns differently. I can offer a broad range of teaching methods, from formal, grammatical learning to the more conversational, interests-based approach, so get in touch to discuss what would suit you best. 

I have experience teaching children and adults and have obtained a certificate to teach French as a second language from the Alliance Française. French is my native language.
