Apply now to be mentored by an established writer, poet, playwright or graphic novelist.
The NZ Society of Authors Mentor Programme 2018 seeks applications from writers and comic/graphic novelists looking for professional development and a safe space to discuss and develop their writing; and work within an intellectual community with role models in a framework of accountability and substantive feedback.
The writers and creators who gained mentorships in 2017 polished and refined their skills under talented mentors such as award-winning writer Mandy Hager, freelance publishing consultant, editor and manuscript assessor Geoff Walker and NZ comic creator Michel Mulipola. The NZSA Mentor Programme has an impressive group of writing and comic / graphic novel mentors listed for 2018.
This year, as part of our commitment to Creative New Zealand, we have again tagged 3 mentorships for emerging writers identifying as Maori, Pasifika, and Asian. There are 18 mentorships available in 2018 in total.
The NZSA Mentor Programme is open for applications from 1 December 2017 until 4pm, 1 February 2018. Click here to find out terms and conditions and how to apply.
The NZSA Mentorship Programme is made possible thanks to funding from Creative New Zealand
