We’re happy to announce Diaspora Dialogues’ 2017 Long Form Mentorship participants. Starting in January 2017, established authors will mentor emerging writers in the development of a full novel, short story, or poetry manuscript. Our mentors are: Lawrence Hill, Shani Mootoo, Moez Surani and Alissa York. The writers receiving mentorship are: Mariama Abdullahi (memoir), Denise DaCosta (novel), Jin Haritaworn (novel) and Phillip Morgan (poetry). We are very excited for this year’s program. Stay tuned for news about our Playwright Mentorship and other updates about our events!
