AWP Offers Writer to Writer Mentorship Program

by Maru Pabón

Starting in September, the Association of Writers & Writing Programs will launch a three-month mentorship program that pairs established AWP members with young writers. The program will consist of six modules, each of which will provide a variety of questions to spur dialogue and creativity between mentor and mentee. Questions like which book would be the best to get me started? Do I really need to include this in my cover letter? What is the first step towards getting published? are just some of the topics to be covered.

Writer to Writer is currently accepting applications for both mentor positions and mentee slots. Mentors will receive a free one-year AWP membership, and the program is free of charge for mentees. This is really a unique opportunity to establish productive connections, so those interested should check out their website for more information and the application instructions.

If you’re on the fence, give this list of famous literary mentorships a read and I’m sure you’ll be inspired.
