ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Sprinng Literary Movement Mentorship Programme is an intensive 3-weeks programme for developing Nigerian writers with great potential and willingness to learn. It is for Nigerian writers between the ages of 16-25 who reside in Nigeria, and who have not published a book. In January 2018, 9 writers were mentored in the programme and in August 2018, 20 writers participated in the programme.
This programme focuses on 4 genres: Poetry, Fiction, Essay, and Book Review. During the 3-weeks, the August 2018 mentees were in contact with their mentors, sending them work and receiving reviews, tips, and commentaries. Mentors and mentees aimed to work on at least 3 work (poems/short stories/essays/book reviews) per week.
