Mentoring Program

This innovative, one-on-one program combines personalized instruction in the craft and art of writing with inspiration toward your project and overall writing goals. Based on the mentoring segment of the MFA in creative writing, the program provides support for your project and you as a writer from a writing professional who understands writing in your area of interest, publishing and the writing life.

Over the roughly eight weeks of the program, you’ll email your mentor submissions. You’ll receive your pages back with feedback in the form of line editing, comments and queries. You'll also meet with your mentor via Zoom and receive resources, which include handouts on craft and writing resources. You can work out the schedule, number of submissions, submission lengths, types of feedback, and number of Zoom meets with your mentor once you’re matched with the right instructor for your project and genre.
