March 1-14: application and matching

March 15 – May 10: working in pairs

The Mentor Matching Program for CRW Members pairs experienced authors of contemporary romance with unpublished or under-published authors from our membership.

Each mentorship pairing takes place over a 10-week period (2 weeks for application and matching, 8 weeks for working as a pair), during which the Mentor will work with their Mentee either to evaluate and revise the first 50 pages of an unpublished romance, or to develop and hone such collateral materials as the blurb, query, synopsis, pitch and/or tagline.
