Mentorship with Sarah Selecky

Bring your writing to the next level.









There comes a point when you don’t want to take another workshop: you need a mentor to help bring your work to fruition.

My mentoring includes careful reading of your work as you write it, weekly calls with feedback, problem-solving, and editorial advice. If you ever get stuck in the middle of a story and you need to touch in, I'll be there in your pocket, on Voxer.

I'll be your writing partner for 14 weeks, supporting you in your process in the ways you need.

If mentorship with me is what you need to help you reach your goals, please book a call to chat with me about being one of my mentees.

Mentorship is profoundly valuable for writers of all genres. My own writing mentors have been key to my success as an author. 

I would be honoured to be your mentor this year.

I currently have 2 spots available for 1:1 writing mentorship.

YOUR MENTORSHIP EXPERIENCE:
  • We’ll work closely together to generate or refine your short stories,  novel-in-progress, or other writing project. I will help you write your most stunning scenes as you shape your work into what it wants to be.

  • You’ll get my personalized feedback as you work on your project, and learn craft techniques by working through your own manuscript. 

  • This mentorship is designed  for those working on book-length projects, but it can be modified to match your particular needs. You can finish your book in this time we spend together — or reach whatever goal is right for you.

  • I’ll support your writing and your writing process for 14 weeks.

  • You have the opportunity to submit up to 20 new pages per week for feedback for a total of 160 pages, or a completed manuscript up to 350 pages.

  • Weekly calls with feedback, problem-solving, and editorial advice (either 30 min calls twice/week or a 1 hour call weekly).

  • Additional support with voice messages through Voxer as needed as you work through your project.
