Writers! An opportunity to be mentored by a publisher


The NZSA / Hachette Mentorship Program opens today

The New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc), in association with Hachette Australia and New Zealand, are once again offering the opportunity for one writer to work on a new draft of their completed manuscript under the joint mentorship of Hachette Australia and New Zealand.

Now in its fourth year, this initiative is for writers of fiction, non-fiction or young adult fiction who have progressed a manuscript beyond first draft, but require the objective view of an experienced publisher to provide constructive critique for that manuscript.

The mentorship is with a busy international publishing house and the mentee can expect personalised publisher feedback on their manuscript. The mentorship runs over a 12 month period.

The selected manuscript may be considered by Hachette for publication within 6 months of delivery of a new draft of the manuscript, but publication is not guaranteed.

Terms and conditions and application form are available now on authors.org.nz

This program is proudly presented by Hachette Australia and New Zealand in partnership with The New Zealand Society of Authors (PEN NZ Inc.)

Open for applications from 9 October until midnight 8 November.

For media enquiries contact: Jenny Nagle director@nzauthors.org.nz
