March 13, 2023
Centre for Stories is excited to share that we have partnered with My Place WA to run a writing and editorial mentoring program for emerging writers with a disability.
The program will select four emerging writers living in Western Australia to participate in a six-month program that will include:
- One-on-one mentoring
- Networking events
Writers will also be profiled on Centre for Stories’ social media and website.
The program is designed to support writers who are early in their journey to becoming writers. Outcomes include:
- Understanding the reading and writing process
- Develop an ongoing writing practice (produce, edit and reflect on work)
- Develop confidence to write independently
- Complete one piece of good quality writing
Expression of interest are now open (apply below) and close on Thursday 6 April 2023.
