Writers - apply now be mentored...........


13 December 2016

For Writers!
Apply now to be mentored by an established writer, poet, playwright or graphic novelist.

The New Zealand 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 has an impressive register of writing and comic / graphic novel mentors listed for 2017. Keep an eye on our website as we add more names over the coming weeks.

The NZSA Mentor Programme is open for applications until 5pm, 3 February 2017. To find out terms and conditions and how to apply visit authors.org.nz.

This Mentorship Programme is possible thanks to funding from Creative New Zealand
