The NZ Society of Authors Mentor programme for 2017 seeks 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.
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 already has an impressive register of writing and comic / graphic novel mentors listed for 2017. But keep an eye on our website as we add more names over the coming weeks.
The NZSA Mentor Programme is open for applications from 2 December 2016 to 5pm, 3 February 2017. To find out terms and conditions and how to apply.
This Mentorship Programme is made possible thanks to funding from Creative New Zealand
