MENTORING

Whether you want to polish your work before sending it for publication, get personalized feedback on your first draft, or even if you just need someone to keep you motivated to write – our mentors can help you.

For Whom?

We offer mentoring sessions for writers of poetry, fiction and non-fiction. These one-to-one sessions are focused on how best to help you, wherever you are in your writing journey. For beginner writers, they can help you find ways to stay focused and improve your writing skills. For writers already working on a manuscript, a mentoring session can help you with a particular issue that you are stuck with. For a writer who has completed a piece, a mentoring session can give valuable feedback for editing and polishing your work.

If you are under 18 years of age and are interested in taking up mentoring sessions, please complete this Consent Form and send it to info@inklingswritingcenter.org after you book the session.

Why Mentoring?

Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”

John Crosby

One-to one mentoring is very different from taking a class or workshop on creative writing. Mentoring is an opportunity to receive in-depth feedback and advice on taking your work forward.

Mentoring is much more than editing or assessment. It is a way in which you can share your writing, learn how to plan your writing and get invaluable feedback over an extended period of time.

How does it work?

You can book one or more hour-long, one-to-one mentoring sessions in either poetry, fiction, or non-fiction. You need to send in an extract of your work in advance so that your mentor can read it and discuss your writing project in detail during the session.

Mentoring is most effective if it is sustained over a period of time. Your mentor can support you through the writing and rewriting process, and offer feedback and advice as you progress.

Mentoring sessions are conducted online using Zoom or Skype. You can book your session online.

For any queries, please write to info@inklingswritingcenter.org

If you wish to book more than one session, please leave a gap of two-to-four weeks between each session, so that you have time to reflect upon earlier feedback and incorporate it into your work before the next session.

Take Your Writing to the Next Level!

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”
