    Mentors

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by ZoeyGirl, May 2, 2016.

    Was wondering if anyone has taken the time to find a mentor either for their writing or publishing hopes. If you have, how did you go about getting one? How helpful has it been to you?

    I don't have one and don't know where to begin. And college won't help - I have been out of college for some years now and no longer have any ties to a college or any professors.

    Thank you in advance!

    If I were to look for a mentor I would look for a local writer in my own town.

    But it's not something that you have or feel would help?

    If I was younger I would be on the look out, but time right now is not on my side. If you can find a willing mentor then I say go go it. Get what you can out of their experience and knowledge and if you feel it's not the right fit then just thank them and walk away.
