Program description:

ECW’s BIPOC Writers Mentorship Program is part of our commitment to promote diverse and inclusive voices in books.

The program is only open to writers who have never published a book and are currently living in Canada.

What it offers:

Each successful writer will be paired with a freelance Black, Indigenous, or racialized editor, or an ECW Press editor who has extended experience editing the genre of the writer’s work.

Over the course of four months, each writer will meet (remotely, or in person) with their assigned editor and receive:

one-on-one editorial guidance on unpublished work

constructive editorial feedback on what's working and where they could improve
experience of what an editorial relationship is like and an introduction to editorial process
insight on how the writer’s work might sit alongside other published books in the market; and
insight on the writer’s target audience and how to reach them.

Writers will also receive expert insight into the publishing industry and process.

Freelance editors will be paid to develop unpublished writers.
