NZSAs Mentor Programme is calling for applications

The NZSAs Mentor and Youth Mentor Programmes are both now open for applications.

Mentor Programme 2012 – Now Open

The NZSA’s Mentor Programme is calling for applications!  This highly successful programme is available only to members of the NZSA  and offers new authors the opportunity to spend 20 hours working alongside some of New Zealand’s best-known authors.

Previous NZSA surveys indicate that the majority of mentees achieve the goals they set at the beginning of their mentorship, whether it was completing a first draft or having work accepted for publication.   If you are serious about your writing career, need feedback and coaching, this programme is for you.

Application forms can be downloaded from our website: www.authors.org.nz

Alternatively, contact the NZSA national office at programmes@nzauthors.org.nz  or send a SAE to

Deadline for applications: 5pm Monday 27 February.

NZSA Youth Mentor Programme 2012

The NZ Society of Authors is calling for applications for a mentoring programme aimed at encouraging senior creative writing students. There are 3 places available to Year 11, 12 and 13 students nationwide. Each of the successful students will work alongside one of New Zealand’s best-known authors in a 10 hour mentorship during Terms 2 and 3. This is an exciting opportunity for young writers to work with an experienced writing mentor and hone their skills.

The programme is based on the NZSA’s successful mentoring programme which has been running since 1999.  For more information and application form contact programmes@nzauthors.org.nz or download form from our website:  www.authors.org.nz
