We strongly believe in encouraging new talent, and also that it is imperative for writers of all stripes to get an objective and critical view of their work before submitting it to agents or publishers, or going down the digital route to publication.
To this end our Chairperson, Man Booker nominated novelist Clio Gray, who was also long listed for the Bailey’s Prize 2016, has agreed to take on a number of writers to mentor.
As places are limited, please first send an outline of the project you want to work on, along with a brief sample of your work.
