Learn from an established professional

Ready to take your draft to the next level? Our mentorships pair you with an experienced writer, illustrator or book industry professional to help craft your work so it’s submission-ready.

All published and unpublished writers and illustrators are eligible for a mentorship – all you need is a work-in-progress. You choose the mentor who best suits you, then work closely with them within a fixed time period – either in-person or remotely.

If you have any questions prior to booking your mentorship please email [email protected]
