We are open to mentee applications until June 27th! You can find our application when you click here. Please check all eligibility requirements. We have expanded the pool for who can apply to ensure more people benefit from the program.
The list of mentors can be found by clicking here.
There are a few differences in our program this year:
1. We have a mentor for teens (me), but I could possibly "roll in" if we get an absolute deluge from 18+ applicants.
2. Having an advanced degree no longer disqualifies you from applying (there are a few slight restrictions, though).
3. You may still submit to a mentor if you have one or two traditionally-published books if the genre you're applying to is newer for you. If you're a journalist just dipping a toe into fiction, you're welcome to apply to a mentor for the genre. If you wrote story collections but have little experience in poetry, you can pitch to a poetry mentor. Please be honest about your past publication experience.
As always, please contact me with any questions:
