How does this program differ from a typical writer’s conference?
At most writer’s conferences you’ll hear 30-minute talks given by several different authors or agents over a 1 to 3 day period of time. But you’ll be one face in a crowd of hundreds clamoring for the attention and advice of a handful of professionals in the industry. If you’re lucky, you may walk away from the refreshment table with a business card or two in hand, but good luck getting them to return your call if you’re not already a big-shot in the industry.
This mentorship opportunity would be the equivalent of spending 12 days relentlessly picking the brain of someone who’s successfully walked in the shoes you aspire to walk in.
