Diaspora Dialogues 2021 Mentoring Program
Diaspora Dialogues invite submissions from emerging writers who currently have a full or near-full draft of an original full-length novel or collection of poems or short stories. Complete or near complete means that the writer has up to 85,000 words or 300 double-spaced pages of prose or up to 25 poems (no more than 50 pages maximum). Submissions will consist only of excerpts from these works.
Diaspora Dialogues is committed to supporting a literature of Canada that is as diverse as the country itself. Writers are encouraged to keep this mandate in mind, but it is not essential in the submission.
Deadline for submissions is October 16, 2020.
The mentorships will begin in January 2021 and run for six months. Assigned mentors are at the discretion of Diaspora Dialogues.
