Last year, I had applied for . . . and I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been selected to participate in the inaugural POC in Pub Writers and Illustators of Color Mentorship Program!
POC Objective is clear and straightforward:
“The People of Color in Publishing Writers and Illustrators Mentorship Program is an opportunity for writers and illustrators of color (protégés) to strengthen their craft, gain first-hand industry knowledge, and expand their connections through experienced professionals (mentors). The mentorship program is intended to be informal, yet instructional. Protégés are expected to work with their mentors on setting goals, so each mentorship experience will be unique.”
The program runs from January 2019 through June 2019.
I will share more information each month.
