Dr Rob Porteous writes and edits fiction and also runs the CSFG novel writing course so he understands fiction writing well. He has also published a non-fiction history so can work on that side if useful. He has edited a collection of Australian short fiction, have a bunch of prizes for short stories and was recently selected as one of 30 Australian unpublished fiction writers for the biennial Hardcopy professional writers program. For the last two years he’s been a judge for the Aurealis Australian Sci-Fi Novel Awards. Rob has critiqued dozens of novels and short stories so would be happy mentoring on most any issue.
