I have signed up to The WoMentoring Project – a free mentoring project, which is the brainchild of author Kerry Hudson, and that aims to support emerging female writers. The scheme has been created to help those who would usually find the costs of mentoring prohibitive. As the website says: ‘The mission of The WoMentoring Project is simple: to introduce successful literary women to other women writers at the beginning of their careers who would benefit from some insight, knowledge and support’. I’m offering a couple of hours of free mentoring to one mentee so if anyone is interested in taking up the offer, my profile is on the site here. There are plenty of other writers to choose from though – as well as editors and literary agents – so it’s well worth applying if it’s something you fancy doing. I’m currently being mentored through my own novel (not via this project) so I know how worthwhile it is to be supported by someone who’s already been where you would like to go.
