The Next Chapter! Is a mentoring programme designed for those currently working on or embarking on a writing project. This could be a novel, a poetry collection, a short story collection or a memoir. All mentees will receive feedback on their work over a period of 12 months. At the end of the 12 months, mentees will have a four-month period in which to complete their projects and will receive a full manuscript assessment from an editor or a published writer in their genre. Mentees will also be invited to meet with a literary agent or publisher. The programme is designed to work around any lifestyle with communication via email and Zoom.

2023-24 applications are now closed.
