Depending on what stage you are at with your project, you may know in advance that you will want to work with your mentor for a full year. Headway allows writers to have a year’s commitment from their mentor.

How Does It Work?

Over a twelve month period, you will have eight one-hour-long meetings with your mentor, who will commit the year to you at the beginning of the process. Before each meeting, you will send your mentor up to ten thousand words of your work in progress.

Applications for Headway are via the online form, by attaching a two thousand word excerpt along with a one page outline of the project. The outline should include a statement on what you hope to achieve from Headway and a guide to how far along you are with the project.

The fee for Headway is $6,200 +GST.
