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 longer period. Headway allows writers to have up to two year’s commitment from their mentor. This is also the program for those who want to work more intensively, over a condensed period.

Please note that not all our mentors offer the Headway Program

How Does It Work?

You will have eight one-hour-long meetings with your mentor, who will commit up to two years 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 $6,400 +GST.
