Welcome to The WoMentoring Project
This project offers free mentoring by professional literary women to talented up and coming female writers who would otherwise find it difficult to access similar opportunities.
Our mission is simple: to introduce successful literary women to other women writers at the beginning of their careers who would benefit from some insight, knowledge and support.
The hope is that we’ll see new, talented and diverse female voices emerging as a result of time and guidance received from our mentors.
How it works
Each mentor selects their own mentee. It is at their discretion how little or much time they donate and what form that takes. We have no budget, it’s a completely free initiative and every aspect of the project – from the project management to the website design to PR support – is being volunteered by a collective of female literary professionals. Quite simply this is about exceptional women supporting exceptional women.
