‘It has been a great privilege to work with Sally. Her thoroughness was incredible – and like nothing I had encountered during my MA. Her insight was amazing and always proved correct. She seemed to know my own doubts about a particular character or scene before I knew them myself!’ – Jen Morgan, mentored by Sally Cline
We will discuss your requirements, which of our writer-mentors might be most suitable for you, and then if we feel you would be right for our programme, we will invite you to apply by emailing us a small sample – of around five thousand words – of your work in progress. If one of the three mentors we approach on your behalf feels your work has potential you will be offered a place with that mentor. We believe that a mentor who loves your project and chooses to work with you is the best possible start for the mentoring.
‘Well within my target year, the novel was out there in the real world, with an agent.’ – Jane Rusbridge, author of The Devil’s Music (Bloomsbury), mentored by Kathryn Heyman
