A mentorship is a relationship between two people: a mentor and a client. The mentor's role is to support and encourage the client as they manage their own learning in a particular area. In a Pen4Joy mentorship this area is creative writing, and Penny's role as mentor is to facilitate your writers journey towards specific goals.
What you'll get from a mentorship with Penny Reeve:
Because each mentorship is tailored to the needs and goals of the writer participating, the specifics will vary from writer to writer. However, all mentorships are based around a minimum 6 month commitment and will include face to face (or phone/skype) meetings, email communication plus sufficient reading/commenting time for Penny to best support you reaching your goals.
What you won't get:
Although Penny will do her best to support your growth as a writer, no mentorship can ever be expected to work as a guarantee of future publication. Neither is a mentorship a manuscript assessment or editorial service. Although some work can be done on editorial concerns, or even on editorial strategies writers need to engage in to bring a work to completion, the main emphasis of the mentorship will be on the writing process not the finished product.
How much will it cost?
Mentorships are charged at a 6 monthly commitment and rates include payment for time used during meetings, reading, feedback and commenting, as well as email communication.
Please contact Penny for further information and current rates.
(NOTE: discounted mentorships are available for Omega Writers and those engaged in full time ministry/mission work.)
