The SWG Mentorship Program allows developing writers to work in a supportive environment under the guidance of professional writers.
The mentor provides the apprentice with one-on-one instruction in the craft of creative writing. The program is open to writers in all genres and will be tailored to the apprentice's individual needs. The pairs will be in weekly contact and can communicate through email, phone, and face-to-face meetings. When an apprentice and mentor do not live in the same community, at least one face-to-face meeting is required.
The focus of the program is craft development; apprentices should not expect to have a completed manuscript by the end of the program. The program will run from January 1 to April 30, 2019. At the end of the program, the apprentices will give a public reading of their work.
There is no cost to apply for this program and there are no participation fees.
