NZSA Mentor Programme 2019 - open for applications​​​​​​​

For Writers! Apply now to be mentored by an established writer, poet, playwright or graphic novelist.

The NZSA Mentor Programme accepts applications for the 2019 programme from 1 Dec 2018 to 1 Feb 2019.

The NZ Society of Authors Mentor programme 2019 seeks applications from writers and comic / graphic novelists looking for professional development, a safe space to discuss their work, intellectual community, role models, accountability and substantive feedback.

The writers and creators who gained mentorships in 2018 polished and refined their skills under talented mentors such as Paula Morris, Pip Adam, Geoff Walker, and Vivienne Plumb. The NZSA Mentor Programme has an equally impressive group of mentors available for 2019.

This programme is made possible thanks to support from Creative New Zealand. This year, as part of our commitment to diversity we have again tagged 3 mentorships for emerging writers identifying as Maori, Pasifika, and Asian. More
