Sheldon Oberman Mentorship Program: A Call for Applications

Hey Manitoba Writers!

The Manitoba Writers’ Guild is calling for applications for the 2013 Sheldon Oberman Mentorship Program. I was selected as an apprentice for this program in 2011, and can certify that it is an amazing opportunity.  (For more about my time as an apprentice, see here).  As an apprentice, you will have a unique opportunity to sit with an established writer over the course of five months and work on whatever it is you and your mentor deem to be important.  I not only came away with a much stronger sense of “craft,” but also with a renewed enthusiasm to tackle my writing passion.

For information about the application requirements and other aspects of the program, see here.  This year, the Writers’ Guild will be accepting seven apprentices.  You can also apply as an established author, and will work as a mentor for one of the apprentices coming into the program.

If you live in Manitoba and you are serious about writing, I cannot encourage you strongly enough to apply for this program.  You will not regret it.
