Breakthrough Mentoring Programme for Writers with Low Income
This nine-month mentoring programme is part of the Breakthrough Writers’ Programme – our outreach initiative for under-represented authors.
This mentoring will run from February 2022 to November 2022 and seeks to support five aspiring authors with one-to-one guidance from a published author-mentor, plus a tutorial with a literary agent.
Applications close end of day, Sunday 16 January. We will get in touch with all applications by Thursday 20 January.

Our form will ask you to make a statement about your income and the reason you deserve this mentoring opportunity.
