Mentee applications for Season 17 will be accepted July 15–August 15. Mentor applications are accepted year-round.
AWP's mentorship program, Writer to Writer, runs twice a year for three months per session. We match emerging writers with published authors to work towards the mentees’ writing goals. Mentors volunteer their time and receive a free one-year AWP membership. Writer to Writer is free of charge, though we do require that mentees have an active AWP membership to participate in the program.
Season 17 begins in September and concludes in December. Is your mentor waiting for you this season?
