Writer to Writer Mentorship Program

Mentee applications for Fall 2021 will be accepted August 1–19. Mentor applications are accepted year-round.

AWP's mentorship program, Writer to Writer, matches emerging writers and published authors for a three-month series of modules on topics such as craft, revision, publishing, and the writing life. Mentors volunteer their time and receive a free one-year AWP membership. Writer to Writer is free of charge to mentees.

The Program

Should you be chosen to participate, your mentor will review your writing, listen to your concerns, and help you problem solve. You will have opportunities to interact with others taking part in that session, and AWP's membership team will be there with you every step of the way.

Our Fall session begins each September and consists of six modules over a three-month period, concluding mid-December.

Our Spring session begins each February and consists of six modules over a three-month period, concluding mid-May.

There is no charge to apply, and there is no fee for this program. Is your mentor waiting for you this season?
