Season 16 Mentors and Mentees

AWP celebrates the writers serving as mentors and mentees in Season 16 of the Writer to Writer Mentorship Program. We selected twelve pairs for this session based on their experience, their willingness to serve, and the needs prevalent in the mentee applications. Mentors were each given several strong applications to choose from and selected their own mentees.
