Mentee Application Form
We take your interest in connecting with a mentor seriously. Writer to Writer is open to all members, but we particularly encourage two underserved segments of our membership to apply—those writers who have never been associated with an MFA program and those writing from regions, backgrounds, and cultures that are typically underrepresented in the literary world. Writer to Writer is free of charge, and applicants can select whether or not to have their application considered for future sessions, should they not be matched for the round for which they applied. If chosen to participate, you will be paired with an established writer who will work with you over the course of three months and a lightly structured six-module series to inform you, listen to your concerns, and help you problem solve. Together, you will decide whether phone, email, or a mix of communication styles would be the best way to complete the modules. Mentors agree to be available for a minimum of two hours per month by phone. If email is preferred, please limit your questions to no more than six per month.
You and your mentor will make a commitment to the process—and to each other.
