The Writing in the Margins is a website dedicated to helping underrepresented storied find their place. They have a Mentor Program which pairs an emerging author from a marginalized social group with an experienced editor or traditionally published author in order to work closely on preparing an unpublished manuscript to submit for publication. All authors and editors work on a completely volunteer basis, and there is no charge to the emerging author. Applications are open twice a year, and necessary applicant qualifications are highlighted prior to the submission period.
Applications are currently open! Please apply by NOVEMBER 30. The mentoring period will be in 2017 from February through April. This time they are accepting applications from the following groups:
- Authors of color
- Disabled authors
To submit your entry, go here. As always, good luck!
