Literature Wales Mentoring Service
Literature Wales offers funding and mentorship for promising writers.

Literature Wales is offering funding towards mentorship for residents of Wales or Welsh speakers who show promising talent in writing. The aim of the mentoring scheme is to guide writers to a publishable piece of work, in any genre in either the English or Welsh language.

Submissions to the mentoring scheme should be given via the application form available on the Literature Wales site. The closing date for applications is October 25th.

"Writers may ask for assistance to develop a specific piece of work-in-progress. Support will be provided in the form of a number of sessions with an established writer from the same genre who will be able to offer constructive criticism and suggestions to help take the work forward. This tutor will be selected from a panel of experienced writers established for this purpose. Writers using this scheme will be expected to devote time between tutor-sessions in order to make progress on the work."
