The WANL Emerging Writers Mentorship program is designed to serve the needs of emerging Newfoundland and Labrador writers who are committed to the development of their writing. It is aimed at writers who are on the cusp of professional publication and who have a substantial work-in-progress. Emphasis is on producing a work ready for the marketplace. Apprentices are matched with senior writers, with whom they work on a one-to-one basis over an intensive five-month period.
