If you have a novel-in-progress, a completed draft of a novel, or at least one finished screenplay or teleplay and/or some previous training, you may wish to consider a one-on-one mentorship with a Writers’ Program instructor. Mentorships give you access to an instructor Monday through Friday for 4 full weeks. You receive feedback every 12-24 hours for most work and 24-36 hours for longer material.
A Mentorship in Creative Writing is ideal for writers who:
- Want a personalized approach to learning based on their level of experience and/or writing goals
- Want ongoing targeted instruction and both written and verbal feedback as new pages are developed
- Need guidance on specific craft issues such as structure, dialogue, characterization, balance, and/or pace
A Mentorship in Screenwriting is ideal for writers who:
- Wish to move forward on a new or existing project in any stage of development
- Seek ongoing written feedback from a professional writer
- Have specific writing challenges they want to address. (Students with a story concept focus on developing scenes, characters, and an outline. Students who are actively writing pages receive regular feedback on craft issues. Students with a completed draft focus on revising or polishing their work.)
