How our mentorships work

Chose the mentorship format that suits your work and goals.

Note that we ask for upfront payment for all our mentorships, to make sure our mentors are paid promptly for their work – but if this is difficult for you (especially in the case of a lengthy mentorship), get in touch to discuss other payment options.

Make sure you’ve included your mentor’s reading time in your time estimate. As a general rule, 10,000 words will take three hours to read, 35,000 words will take eight hours, and 70,000 words+ will take sixteen hours. If your manuscript is over 100,000 words, get in touch to discuss the best options for you.
