Dan Hawkins - Feedback, Editing and Critique Service

Many thanks for looking over my work and providing honest and constructive feedback, it is highly appreciated. 


I was concerned that the info dump and name dropping could be a little bewildering so I'm glad that you pointed this out. You also provided me with a lot of insight that I didn't take into account. 


The advice you gave about information in an epilogue being redundant if it will be explored elsewhere in the novel has been especially helpful. 


Again, your advice has been invaluable, and I am glad that you have provided your honest take on structural elements that I would not have considered.

Louise Worthington, author of Distorted Days - Feedback, Editing and Critique Service

I am new to writing flash fiction and rather ambitiously and blindly decided to start on a project to write a novella in flash on a topic close to my heart. I was very lucky to find Debbi to provide feedback, not just in a timely and sensitive manner to keep me motivated, also in a way which has left me in no doubt I want to continue to work with Debbi on my project to make it as good as it can be going forward. She provided just the right level of feedback and suggestions to absorb and to take forward to the next level. Debbi is a safe pair of hands; experienced, mature and encouraging.

Cheryl Pappas - Feedback, Editing and Critique Service

I contacted Debbi to help me polish an excerpt of my novel to submit to three competitions. The time was tight, but even so, Debbi came through with thoughtful, insightful edits. She was very communicative with me throughout the whole process, which I appreciated. It showed me that she brought all of her attention to my work, and for that I'm incredibly grateful. This was the first time I'd worked with her, but it definitely won't be the last

Diane Tatlock - Online Workshop

I have just completed a Novella in Flash workshop with Debbi which she tailored specifically to accommodate me as I am deaf and cannot work in a group or on Skype. It was a really inspirational time as Debbi produced so many ideas for me to try and also critiqued my own thoughts in the nicest, kindest possible way. She made me feel that I could definitely go forward with the ideas which were produced in the workshop. Not only that, but she convinced me that she is genuinely interested in seeing how my writing progresses and where it takes the concepts we discussed. I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who is considering having a go at a Novella in Flash, especially those who need to work in an individual environment. I shall be looking forward to working with Debbi again when I have managed to get the ideas she inspired me to use more formulated.

I would highly recommend Debbi's online workshops. I have recently completed the 'Emotional Writing Workshop' and it was so inspiring not only from analysing an excellent emotional piece of writing but also in providing me with techniques and pointers on how to do this myself. Highly motivating and so convenient for me to be able to complete the workshop from home. I will definitely be booking further workshops! Thank you Debbi!

Karen Schauber - Facebook Prompt Group

Debbi Voisey’s ‘DublinWriter Prompt Group’ on fb, is the best kept secret in flash fiction (‘ooops!’) – the group is kept small, and this is its charm and magic! Debbi is there at every turn with insightful comments, specific suggestions, and genuine encouragement, on how you might improve your flash piece, almost instantaneously as you press the submit button to post your WIPs, – Does the woman ever sleep?

Riham Adly - Facebook Prompt Group

I've been battling with health issues and writer's block since forever, Debbi's prompt workshop helped me bypass my panic and get over it. Her feedback is priceless, her support is everything. I got published in my dream publications such as Flash Back and Flash Frontier and Okay Donkey after doing her workshop. Debbi is the best mentor I've come across and her prompts (21!) are diverse and inspiring. The length and duration of the workshop (28 days) is just right to give one time to work on stories.

I really enjoyed Debbi's short story workshop. She gave us great tips and they got my creative juices flowing again. Can't wait for the next workshop

Elizabeth Carver - Online Workshop

Don’t be afraid of doing this! Don’t think that you can’t write because you were bad at English in school, it’s just not like that at all. I had the best fun doing my first workshop and was shocked as to what creativity was jumping out of my head. It was really mentally exhilarating - don’t sniff at it because you think it sound a bit too, well, educational. 

Debbi is a well grounded lady who looks glam and posh on her photo but is actually glow glam (but not tinselly 😀), warm and encouraging. Can’t wait for my next workshop.

I really enjoyed this workshop. I loved the free writing excercise with "random words" Fun and challenging. Will go to some more if study time permits.

Bev Adams - Writing Workshop

I really enjoyed Debbie's Short Story Workshop. It was engaging, positive and constructive, with lots of 'tools' and 'top-tips' for writing short fiction.
