Arkbound Foundation - Mentoring Programme

Delivered by Arkbound Foundation

We offer 1-1 creative writing mentoring programmes that run for 6 months where we link up budding writers whose voices are currently under-represented in publishing with experienced professionals.

Available online or in person.

Each programme is tailored to the writer’s needs and it aims to:-

  • Enhance writing skills.
  • Further personal development through improving confidence and awareness as a writer.
  • Develop transferable professional skills.
  • Gain transferable skills, such as organisation, commitment, self- motivation
  • Gain knowledge about the publishing industry.
  • Access a route to publishing.

No formal previous experience in creative writing is required, although if one has a particular piece they would like to work on, please ensure to state this in the application. Throughout the programme, we will keep you updated and help you submit work to writing competitions and at the end of it, we will aim to showcase your work online. In some cases there will be the opportunity to get published.
