Free mentoring for young London writers
Spread the Word is a group that works with up and coming writers in London offering workshops, one to one advice and mentoring schemes with professional writers for people looking for help with poetry, fiction, non-fiction and script writing.
They also offer advice surgeries on finding an agent, approaching publishers or in what direction you should take your writing next. Surgeries are usually free but the workshops do charge, the amount varies.
Starting this June they’re having a project called Flight, a free mentoring event lasting 6 months and aimed at 18-24 year old aspiring writers who’ll get one to one advice, guidance and online support from an experienced writer in fiction, poetry, plays, TV/film script or storytelling. All you’ll need to do is have the time to write and be able to attend six face to face sessions. To join this project you need to submit an application to Spread the Word by 9 May.
