Mentor In The Loop

One of the best things a writer can do for themselves is have their work reviewed throughout the writing process. To see what’s working, what could use some clarification. Or maybe you just need some advice. You’re stuck in a rut and don’t know where to go.

Each month, the Alexandra Writers’ Centre will host an experienced mentor who will be available to review small portions of work (prose/poetry/dramatic scripts) or to offer advice, discuss your writing and ask questions. Whether you are looking at how to get published, how to overcome writer’s block, or how to address lingering self-doubt, the mentor will encourage and support you in all your writing goals. Whatever you need, the mentor has been there.

There will be a new mentor every month, and programming will vary depending on the mentor.

Affordable mentoring for all writers.
