Immediate Feedback as You Revise


If you need ongoing help …

If you need accountability and immediate feedback …

If you don’t know how to become a better writer …

Ongoing Beat Level Consultations can help.

I honestly loved the feedback Leslie gave me. It was great hearing some real time reactions to my work! I’ve since rebranded my story and now have three published audiobooks from it.

What if you could have your own private version of the podcast?


This service is "from the ground up" editing guidance. We'll have private weekly discussions, similar to those you hear on the Writership Podcast. This can begin as early as you are ready to begin revising your story at the level of paragraphs and sentences.

Consultations with an expert editor will help you stay accountable for your writing goals, grow your self-editing skills, and guide you in completing your work

Whether you’re a new writer and not sure where to start, or an experienced writer who wants support to continue to grow in the craft, you can benefit from Ongoing Beat Level Consultations.

This service includes a one-hour coaching call each week. You can submit scenes for me to review and for us to discuss. The practice of writing scenes and receiving immediate suggestions for course correction creates a tight feedback loop that shortens the learning curve for the writing process. 

All this will move you toward finally finishing a story that you're really proud of.



Ongoing Beat Level COnsultations include the following:


  • Four One-Hour Phone Consultations
    We’ll talk each week for four weeks, to discuss your questions and my suggestions for your writing.
  • Customized Writing Assignments
    Every week I’ll assign customized homework to help improve your skills and your manuscript.
  • Detailed Feedback on Submitted Assignments
    Every writer is at a different place in their journey. I’ll provide feedback on your submitted assignments along with the next steps you can take to level up as a writer. It’ll be like your own private version of the feedback given on the Writership Podcast, except you’ll get to ask questions and talk it through in our phone consultations.

Investment: $600 for four weeks of one-hour sessions


My promise to you

Wherever you are in your writing journey, I promise to create a tight feedback loop that will shorten your learning curve and guide you toward completing your story.

I block time in my calendar for Ongoing Beat Level sessions, and have a limited availability each week.

Jess Hudson testimonial for Leslie Watts.
I’ve not really shared any of my writing with anyone before—I suppose from some fear of someone telling me it was crap and me losing my confidence. But Leslie had such lovely things to say about my story, and her feedback has definitely given me a boost!

I don’t feel quite so much now that writing is just something I should be doing for myself. Maybe other people would want to read some too!
