• Submit 2 pieces of work, both as different as possible in execution to showcase range – the Mentor is looking for your best pieces, so don’t filter anything from the potential submissions. If your best work is a recipe and your goal is write a book that involved a lot of cooking, it showcases your skills.
• Decision of successful applicant is made by a selection process that creates a short-list for the Mentor to select the candidates from. The Mentor’s decision is final and no feedback can be given for unsuccessful candidates. All unsuccessful candidates are encouraged to apply again for the next years’ intake. Any feedback provided is discretionary.

NB: This program does not teach, and is not intended to teach, the craft of writing. It assumes a high level of writing ability and is focused on developing the mindset of a successful and professional author who is focused on performance excellence.
** Where creative art is the subject (visual media includes photography, graphic design, cartoon and animation specialists) please provide examples similar to the above but in your chosen media. If uncertain, please make several suggestions for the Mentor to request further information from, should your application make it past the first selection panel.
