Mentoring Program

Some of us reach points in our writing journey - whether it be in story organization, suggestions on finding an editor, publishing assistance, ideas for marketing, or in other ways - where we can use personalized assistance.
One of the many benefits of being a Guild member is your access to experienced members who can help you along the way.

The Mission of the Guild's Mentoring Program is thus as follows:
Provide an experienced Guild member to serve as champion, facilitator, or guide to the Guild for members seeking specialized assistance.
Your mentor is, as our Mission states, a facilitator rather than a copy editor, a sounding board and guide rather than a personal assistant. Use their talents wisely.
Current areas of mentoring assistance:
    •    Biography, memoir, nonfiction, poetry 
    •    Fiction, the arts, religion/theology, psychology & self help
    •    Self publishing, book distribution and marketing
We will attempt to address other specialized interests.

this program is person-to-person program (not group based).
