But reading about the mentorships available with Nalo sure made me want to write again.
Not that I think she'd want to mentor me, mind you, as I'm a pretty traditional Cuban gal, but I do admire her talent and her passion. And I sympathize with her health situation, as I also have my chronic ills that sap my energy and cause me to have to restructure my life and activities. Well, and we were both born in Caribbean nations, but immigrated North to English-speaking lands, now that I think about it.
So, back to the mentorships: If you have a passion for literature, good writing skills (grammar, sentence structure, etc), are writng SF, figure you are simpatico with Ms. Hopkinson as a person (she talks about herself in the info page for the mentorship), and you've got $2000 for the non-refundable mentorship fee that covers 3 months of email-facilitated mentoring/critique, well, check out this info.
But hurry. Applications will be accepted only through the deadline of October 5th. Mentoring begins October 15th.
And if you're not interested in mentoring, but have a ton of cash lying around (or just a big unused pile) and want to support a scholarship for one of her mentorees, you can do that, too.
