Mentoring Young Writers

on August 26, 2013

This summer, I’ve had the privilege to mentor a young writer through the Youth WRITE Now Program.

Every other week or so, we correspond by email. She sends me some of her writing, I comment on it, and then send her some writing ideas.

This past week, my mentee, Keilah, wrote a blog post about her experience being mentored and why it’s helping her write. You can read that post here.

I was also asked to write a blog post about mentorship and you can read my post here.

The Youth WRITE Now Program is a great mentoring program, and I’d highly encourage all published writers to volunteer to be a writing mentor! You can find out more about being a mentor here.
