Writer Kerry Hudson has come up with a wonderful scheme to connect aspiring women writers to mentors in their field. She has set up a twitter account called @WomentoringP and if you are a female writer and interested in being assigned a mentor (it’s totally free!) do follow that account. (Apologies to the gentlemen but I will keep my eye out for mixed equivalents in future.) The website is in train and more details will be available for interested candidates in the coming months.
I am one of the people who has volunteered her time as a mentor – check out my bio if you are interested, though there are many other great people there too. If that hasn’t put you off and you’re a woman and like the idea, do follow the twitter account for updates, if you can!
