This innovative, one-on-one program combines personalized instruction in the art and craft of long form fiction with meeting goals, sustaining motivation, finding support, publishing, and more. The  program provides support for your project, and you as a writer, from a published writing professional, editor and 2022 Westport's Poet Laureate.

The program lasts eight (8) weeks. Depending on your project and needs, we will schedule when you will submit writing and when you will receive feedback. Typically, mentees submit up to five (5) pages of writing each week and receive feedback within two (2) days along with substantial ideas and resources. Mentoring is suitable for students writing individual pieces or one longer work of fiction.

 

Also included:

• THREE (3) ZOOM CALLS:

  Call #1 (30 minutes during week 1), we will discuss your project and goals.

  Call #2 (30 minutes during week 4), review questions or considerations.

  Call #3 (30 minutes during week 8), address remaining questions and set

  up next steps.

 

• RESOURCES: The mentor will suggest exemplar writing, craft pieces, helpful books, authors to follow, and/or other resources.

 

• GOAL: Approximately 40 pages of new and/or revised prose (poets: we'll set an individual goal), a hearty understanding of the creative fiction and poetry genre, and a practical introduction to life as a writer.
