Welcome the 2018 Mentorship!

We’re happy to announce Diaspora Dialogues’ 2018 Long Form Mentorship participants. Starting in January 2018, established authors will mentor emerging writers in the development of a full novel, short story, or poetry manuscript. Our mentors are: George Elliott Clarke, Olive Senior, Cherie Dimaline, Shyam Selvadurai and Rabindranath Maharaj. The writers receiving mentorship are: Louise Boileau (short story collection), Fiona Clarke (short story collection), Vivian Li (short story collection), Sadi Muktadir (short story collection), Annie Wong (poetry) and Sujeet Sennik (novel). We are very excited for this year’s program.
