Cinnamon Pencil: Online Application
Applying to Cinnamon Pencil to mentor in 2021 is simple. Aside from contact details, you need to send us just three documents:
- A synopsis:
- Tells us the outline of the work you'd like to mentor. This document should be no more than 500 words long.
- An extract:
- Give us a flavour of your writing by sending part of the work to be mentored. Prose writers should submit up to 10,000 words of their novel, memoire, or short stories. Poets please send up to 15 poems from your collection/pamphlet.
- And a personal statement:
- Tell us a little about yourself, your writing and why you want to mentor with Cinnamon Pencil. Up to 500 words.
N.B. Please send your three documents as either .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf files — we cannot accept paper submissions to the scheme. Sadly, we cannot give feedback on unsuccessful applications.
We'll take a look at your application and get back to you as soon as we can.
Thanks for your interest in Cinnamon Pencil and good luck!
