For Writers! Apply now to be mentored by an established writer, poet, playwright or comic / graphic novelist.
The NZ Society of Authors Mentor programme for 2016 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 tagged 3 mentorships for emerging writers identifying as Maori, Pacifika, and Asian.
The writers and creators who gained mentorships in 2015 polished and refined their skills under talented mentors such as award-winning novelist Paula Morris and Kiwi comic creator Dylan Horrocks.
The NZSA Mentor Programme already has an impressive register of writing and comic / graphic novel mentors listed for 2016. But keep an eye on our website as we add more names over the coming weeks.
The NZSA Mentor Programme is open for applications until 5 February 2015. To find out terms and conditions and how to apply go to the NZ Society of Authors website.
This Mentorship Programme is made possible thanks to funding from Creative New Zealand
