Open Call for Revamped 2012 Mentoring Program

Diaspora Dialogues is excited to announce a revamping of its mentoring programs into one comprehensive program to focus on the creation of long-form manuscripts. This new program will offer emerging writers greater in-depth opportunity to hone their craft and ready a book-length project for publication.

Our “Writer’s Residencies” will provide each writer with a specialized professional development program, as well as targeted introductions to agents and/or publishers.

DD is inviting submissions of original full-length novels or collections of short stories up to 85,000 words or 300 double-spaced pages; or full-length poetry manuscripts of up to 25 poems (no more than 50 pages maximum) from emerging writers.

Deadline is June 15, 2012.
