Announcing JG Faherty as Our New Mentorshp Program Manager
Under Brian’s leadership, the Mentor Program experienced tremendous growth and saw major improvements in scheduling and quality despite the increase in participants each year. Brian will be focusing once more on his own creative endeavors, including writing and editing, and the Board wishes him continued success.
JG Faherty, who has served as the Assistant Manager of the Mentorship Program since 2019, will be taking over management of the program. JG has been a mentor since 2011, and received the Mentor of the Year award in 2018.
The Mentorship program is open to all Active, Affiliate, Supporting, or Academic member in good standing with the HWA. It is comprised of two four-month sessions each year: January through April, and June through September. Mentees who are accepted are required to have a polished piece of work (2-3 poems, completed short story, first chapter of a novel or screenplay) ready to submit to their mentor at the start of their assigned session.
Enrollment for the June semester is currently open. Anyone interested in joining the program as a mentee or mentor should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or with any questions you might have.
