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?
Mentorship rates cover time for meetings, reading, commenting and email communication.
Current rates are:
* $1650.00 for the first 6 month commitment (this works out to be approximately 32 hours worth)
* $1500.00 per 6 months continuing.
(NOTE: discounted mentorships are available for Omega Writers and those engaged in full time ministry/mission work.)
