What is mentoring?

Mentoring is for writers who want to develop a particular project by working closely with an experienced writer. We encourage and guide you by reading and commenting on your drafts and helping you decide what to do next. Typically, you will receive 30 to 40 hours of your mentor's exclusive attention over the course of the programme.

What happens

Before you and your mentor start work you both agree to a simple plan setting out a reasonable goal for the mentoring.

Typically, the writer sends a draft or part of a draft to the mentor. She or he reads it and gives comment on its strengths and weaknesses and also suggests how to take it to the next stage. This will involve either more writing or rewriting.

Please note that it may not be possible to finish your project during the duration of the programme. Getting it right takes time.
