Call for Writers
Are you a new, emerging or recently published writer? Would you like professional help with your current work-in-progress?
Mayo Arts Service is supporting the Words Ireland National Mentoring Programme, which will ensure that at least one writer or poet from Co. Mayo will benefit from a literature mentoring relationship.
The mentoring process involves 4 x two-hour meetings between the selected ‘mentee’ and their chosen professional writer over a 6–8 month period. The mentor will read up to 10,000 words of the mentee’s prose, or a selection of poems, in advance of each meeting and share their critical feedback and advice. The work in progress of the mentee is discussed in depth.
Applications must be made via Submittable. Selected mentees must be willing and able to meet mentors via Skype, Zoom or phone for initial meetings.
