For your opportunity to be mentored by an established writer, poet, playwright or comic / graphic novelist – apply to NZ Society of Authors by 3 Feb.
The deadline is looming for applications to the NZ Society of Authors Mentor programme 2017. We are seeking applications from writers and comic / graphic novelists looking for professional development, a safe space to discuss their work, intellectual community, role models, accountability and substantive feedback. The programme runs between April and November 2017.
This year, as part of our commitment to Creative New Zealand, we have again tagged 3 mentorships for emerging writers identifying as Maori, Pacifika, and Asian.
The writers and creators who gained mentorships in 2016 polished and refined their skills under talented mentors such as award-winning poet Elizabeth Smither, freelance publishing consultant, editor and manuscript assessor Geoff Walker and NZ independent comic creator Robyn E Kenealy.
The NZSA Mentor Programme is open for applications till 5pm, 3 February 2017. To find out terms and conditions and how to apply.
