Mentoring Feminists, Mentoring Writers: Jennifer Mills, Natalie Kon-Yu and Jacinda Woodhead

From FWF18: Mentoring Feminists, Mentoring Writers.

Mentoring is a critical part of the creative life, but something women and non-binary writers are often excluded from. Without mentoring, writers and artists can miss out on important networks or opportunities; sometimes, it can be hard to even get a foot in the door. Here, writers and editors Jennifer Mills, Natalie Kon-Yu and Jacinda Woodhead discuss the importance of active mentoring in the creative arts.
