Byron Writers Festival members can to apply for free-of-charge mentoring through the Mentoring Scholarships Program. This opportunity is for early stage writers working on a manuscript, who are seeking an initial appraisal of their work from an industry professional.
There are four firsthand feedback sessions on offer, with one session reserved for an Indigenous writer (details of firsthand feedback sessions available below). Successful applicants are awarded the mentorships based on a small sample of their work.
