Apply for Writivism’s 2017 Creative Writing Mentoring

Deadline: 31 January 2017 midnight, East African time

Writivism is calling for applications for its 2017 Creative Writing Mentoring programme. The stories that the selected writers produce during the mentoring will be automatically entered for the 2017 Writivism Short Story and Koffi Addo Prizes.

Writivism Literary Initiative is pleased to announce that our 2017 online Mentoring Programme is now open for applications. A project of the Centre for African Cultural Excellence, Writivism identifies, mentors, publishes and promotes emerging African writers resident in any country on the African continent.

Now, in its fifth year, the Writivism programme provides online mentoring to emerging writers of fiction and creative nonfiction. An emerging writer is defined as one who is yet to publish a book. The mentoring will involve the emerging writer sending their work to the mentor (a published or award winning African writer), who will provide feedback on how the work can be improved.
