The team at Curtis Brown Creative are offering a Breakthrough Mentoring Programme for Disabled Writers, and you just might be who they are looking for.

According to the Curtis Brown Creative website:
This nine-month mentoring programme is part of The Breakthrough Writers’ Programme – our outreach initiative for under-represented authors.

This mentoring will run from October 2021 to July 2022 and seeks to support five aspiring authors through one-to-one guidance from a published author-mentor, plus a tutorial with a literary agent.

Mentoring sessions will take place via Zoom/phone calls. We are able to make accessibility adjustments to the programme if required.

For example, by providing a British Sign Language interpreter.

Are you interested?  Then, have a read through the eligibility and application guidance and prepare to wow your readers.  

Applications close Sunday 19 September.  If you do apply, good luck!  :)
