Young Writers Mentoring Project

Zanni is passionate about supporting young writers to realise their writing goals. With years of experience running workshops for kids, and visiting schools, Zanni knows how passionate some kids are about their words.

Because not everyone has access to world-class writing classes, Zanni would like to offer one young person a year free one-on-one mentoring, to help you reach your writing goals, and develop your writing style.

The mentorship will involve one Skype or face-to-face meeting, and one manuscript review each month of the year. Zanni’s experience as a counsellor, workshop facilitator and published author ensure these sessions are fun, personalised, and totally worthwhile.

Applications for 2018 are now open for writers 18 years and under. Email Zanni with your expression of interest. Share a paragraph or two about why you’d like Zanni as a mentor, and an example of some of your best writing. Applications close 23 February 2018.
