Writing & Poetry Mentorships: Writing Place 2022

Presented by

Arts Access Australia


About the opportunity

Calling all writers and poets who are Deaf, disabled or neurodiverse! Enrich your craft by applying for one of the Arts Access Australia inaugural writing mentorships.

Eight writing mentorships are on offer, with the aim of supporting a Deaf, disabled or neurodivergent writer from each state and territory. The mentorships are provided by Arts Access Australia, as part of their successful Writing Place initiative.

The mentorships include:

  • 8 weeks of online mentoring with an experienced writer
  • 3 professional development workshops, delivered online
  • networking opportunities with your peers and peak industry bodies
  • an opportunity to be part of a panel at Meeting Place 2022.

About the mentorship

The mentorship will take place online over 8 weeks, across August and September 2022. You will engage with your mentor once or twice a week during this time.

Arts Access Australia will match you with a suitable professional mentor, or, if you prefer, you can engage your own suitable mentor.

At the end of your mentorship, you will need to provide a short report of your experience participating in the program.
