Heyman Mentorship Award partners with Catherine Milne and HarperCollins Australia

September 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Novelist Kathryn Heyman, founder of the Australian Writers Mentoring Program, has partnered with publisher Catherine Milne of HarperCollins to offer the 2020 Kathryn Heyman Mentorship Award for a writer from a background of social and economic disadvantage.

The successful writer will be mentored by Kathryn Heyman, under the auspices of the Australian Writers Mentoring Program, for six months. At the conclusion of the mentoring program, the writer will receive a full read of their manuscript, with the first option to publish, and a full editorial report from HarperCollins.

The award is for a writer of fiction or non-fiction over the age of thirty. However, the writer should be working on a full-length work of prose which engages in some way with issues of class and economic disadvantage.
