Queer Words Project Scotland Mentoring Opportunities
Deadline: 28 January 2018
QWPS (Queer Words Project Scotland) is a brand new mentoring and publishing opportunity for queer writers based in Scotland. In 2018, we will pair four writers - Harry Giles, Jo Clifford, Kirsty Logan and Shane Strachan - with emerging writers who identify as queer, are based in Scotland and could benefit from mentoring and advice at the early stages of their career. To apply for a mentorship, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org including:
1. Full contact details (address & phone)
2. A 300 word statement (in the body of the email)
This should specify why you're applying to this particular initiative and how you would benefit from mentoring.
3. A writing sample (attached to the email, double spaced, format .doc or .docx)
A short story up to 3000 words OR a short script (or excerpt) up to 10 pages OR up to 4 poems, no more than 150 lines in total.
The deadline for submissions is January 29th, 2018.
Mentored writers will receive 2 in-person mentoring sessions between April and June 2018 and will produce a piece of writing to be included in the QWPS anthology, for which they will receive a fee of up to £300. The anthology will be published by 404 Ink, Spring 2019.
