writing mentorshipMentor Applications for the 2017 Adroit Journal Summer Writing Mentorship Program — Now Open!

The Adroit Journal Summer Mentorship Program is an entirely free, entirely online summer program that seeks to pair high school writers from around the world with established writers in poetry, fiction, or nonfiction.

The ideal mentor is organized, is knowledgeable about either contemporary poetry, fiction, or nonfiction, has experience in the classroom with creative writing (whether as a student, a teacher, or both), and anticipates being reachable for the duration of the program (late June to early August).

Mentors may create an original syllabus, use a provided syllabus model, or may use an outside syllabus. The application to mentor includes a statement of interest, writing sample, and curriculum vitae.

We are accepting applications on a rolling basis, so the sooner we receive your application, the better!


Mentoring reminded me that what’s most important is getting students—and ourselves!—to generate, to write our truths fearlessly and bravely.
— Raena Shirali, 2016 Mentor
