2023 QWF Mentorship Reading

11 June at 14:00 16:00 EDT

The QWF Mentorship Reading is scheduled for June 11, 2023 at 2 pm. This event will happen in-person at the Atwater Auditorium, 2nd floor of the Atwater Library (Note that as the event is happening outside library hours, the entrance is at 4023 Tupper Street).

The QWF Mentorships are designed to help promising emerging writers make the transition to the next stage of their careers. Over a period of four months, each mentee received one-on-one guidance and support from a professional writing mentor. Now, their journey culminates in a public reading where the mentees present an excerpt of their works-in-progress.

This year’s cohort features:

Alana Dunlop, mentored by H. Felix Chau Bradley in Fiction
Loch Baillie, mentored by Simina Banu in Poetry
Yaani Dinu Mahapatuna, mentored by Sean Michaels in Fiction
