Alistair MacLeod Mentorship Program

The Alistair MacLeod Mentorship Program supports writers who are on the cusp of professional publication and who are committed to their writing and creative development. This is not an introductory creative writing course; it is a disciplined, focused, and supportive one-on-one apprenticeship program through which writers expand and hone their craft. The application period for the 2020 program closed on October 25, 2019.
