The Mentorship program is an initiative of the Writers’ Guild of Alberta designed to help promising emerging writers make the transition to the next stage of their careers. The program will take place from January through April 2018. We will accept up to five apprentices to work with mentors this year.
The program is intended to meet the needs of emerging Alberta writers for guidance, collaboration and encouragement. This is not an introductory creative writing course; it is a one-on-one pairing of apprentices and mentors. The program is an intensive, hands-on opportunity intended to provide a disciplined and focused period of work for emerging writers.
Deadline: Applications must be received by 4:30 pm September 5, 2017.
Successful applicants will be notified by late October 2017.
