To celebrate the opening of entries for The Next Chapter, The Wheeler Centre’s writers’ scheme, join three participants and their mentors – Arthur Bolkas and Arnold Zable, Meleika Gesa-Fatafehi and Ellen van Neerven, and Jean Bachoura and Maria Tumarkin – to discuss the varied forms of support for emerging writers, and the unique qualities of writing mentorships.
Presented annually, The Next Chapter gives 10 outstanding emerging writers the time and space to write, and a 12-month mentorship with an experienced writer. Through these dedicated mentorships, tomorrow’s great voices receive guidance and support from today’s literary icons.
