Mentor Program

Mentor Program
Susan Korn, Director 

The Gold Country Writers mission is to offer education, support, resources, promotion and networking opportunities to local authors and writers, empowering them to reach their writing and publishing goals. To that end, we are offering our GCW Mentor Program. It is a free program to our members.

The program will facilitate sharing of various aspects of writing, including publishing experiences, motivational methods, marketing strategies and many other techniques and knowledge to empower writers.

Joining the GCW Mentor program allows writers to meet others interested in the same genre or to explore opportunities in other genres. The program encourages open communication among members.

• Must be a GCW Member.
• No Mentor will be paid any compensation or provided any valuable goods or services for rendering Mentor Guidance.

Covid-19 is presenting us all with challenges and opportunity. If you’re looking for extra support at this time we urge you to consider reaching out. We have GCW members ready and willing to Zoom, phone or email some one-on-one support. We don’t want to see this current situation derail your goal of writing and publishing the book of your dreams.
