QWPS (Queer Words Project Scotland) is a brand new mentoring and publishing opportunity for queer writers based in Scotland.

In 2018, we will pair four writers – Harry Giles, Jo Clifford, Kirsty Logan and Shane Strachan – with emerging writers who identify as queer, are based in Scotland and could benefit from mentoring and advice at the early stages of their career. Mentored writers will receive 2 in-person mentoring sessions between April and June 2018 and will produce a piece of writing to be included in the QWPS anthology, for which they will receive a fee of up to £300. The anthology will be published by 404 Ink, Spring 2019.

1. Full contact details (address & phone)

2. A 300 word statement (in the body of the email) This should specify why you're applying to this particular initiative and how you would benefit from mentoring.
