Only one week to go for Youth Mentorship Programme Applications

Three lucky secondary school students are again being given the opportunity to work with three of New Zealand’s best professional authors in order to hone their writing skills and develop their craft.

The NZSA Youth Mentoring Programme 2014 deadline is now looming - aspiring young writers (15-18) have until April 1 to get their applications in and take advantage of a 10 hour mentorship.  

2013 recipient Charlotte Steel says her mentorship last year saw her produce a body of work that she had enough confidence in to enter into competitions.

“I entered some of my work in various competitions with a good success rate and I aim to do more of this and wish my mentorship could continue!” 

The intent of the programme is to foster and develop emerging writing talent with the support of established authors. The NZSA has run a highly successful mentoring programme for writers since 1999 and it is sponsored by Creative New Zealand.


Deadline: 1 April 2014
