DO NOT USE - 2014-2017 QWF Mentorship Program

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

QWF 2017 Mentorship Program
Call for Applications from Quebec English-language Writers

DEADLINE: 11:59 pm Monday, November 21, 2016 

The QWF Mentorship program is designed to help promising emerging writers make the transition to the next stage of their careers. Over a period of four months, mentors are expected to devote 35 to 40 hours to reading and responding to their protegé’s work and giving guidance towards the goal of publication or production. Protegés are expected to commit a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per month to the program. Remuneration for mentors is $1500. The only cost to protegés is a $20 USD* non-refundable application fee.

This program is intended for Quebec residents who do not have other resources at hand for professional mentorship. As such, students currently in writing programs and authors working with a professional editor/publisher are not eligible for this program. Nor are those who have already had a QWF mentorship.

Both mentors and mentees will be selected by an independent jury. There is no guarantee that all genres will be included in the final pairings. Depending on geographical location, some of the Quebec mentorships may also be conducted primarily by email, Skype and telephone.

*Our online submissions software US-based. We have lowered the submission fee this year by $5 USD to take the exchange rate into account.

The Quebec Writers’ Federation gratefully acknowledges the assistance of
