The SFWA Mentoring Initiative is an all-volunteer service provided free of charge, which aims to connect emerging writers to each other and to established pros with the objective of providing community, sharing knowledge, and offering networking opportunities.
It is in general focused on professional development rather than artistic development. In other words, if you are selected for the program, you will not be expected to critique work for your mentee.
The Initiative is open to SFWA members both active and associate as well as to aspiring members. Mentors are drawn from the ranks of active and associate SFWA members and other professional writers. Each match will last six months, barring unforeseen circumstances.
One of our goals is to create ongoing relevance in SFWA by extending its benefits to the generations of writers who will hopefully join and perpetuate the organization.
