2020 WGA Mentorship Program

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

The Mentorship Program is an initiative of the Writers’ Guild of Alberta designed to help promising emerging writers to make the transition to the next stage of their careers. The program will take place from January through April 2020.

We will accept up to six apprentices to work with mentors this year.

The program is intended to meet the needs of emerging Alberta writers for guidance, collaboration and encouragement. This is not an introductory creative writing course; it is a one-on-one pairing of apprentices and mentors. The program is an intensive, hands-on opportunity intended to provide a disciplined and focused period of work for emerging writers.

Deadline: Applications must be received by October 25, 2019, 4:30pm.

Successful applicants will be notified by late November 2019.
