Thank you for your interest. The call for Borderlines mentors is now closed.
The Writers’ Guild of Alberta seeks mentors to work with participants of the 2017 Borderlines Writers Circle. Borderlines Writers Circle is a program for multilingual, multicultural writers who have not yet found a place in the local writing community. A significant feature of the program is mentorship.
Mentors are writers familiar with aspects of craft appropriate to the genre they write in. Mentors are involved in local writing communities and are willing to introduce Borderlines participants to those communities. Also, mentors are willing to support participants through the challenges of writing in English as a second language and writing about difficult subjects.
Total time commitment: 15 hours (face to face meetings and prep time), attendance at two events (September and March)
Contract duration: September through March
Wage: $750 total
Must reside in Edmonton area
Application date: July 17, 2017. Preference will be given to WGA members.
Please send a letter of interest and artist CV to [email protected] by July 17.
