Call for Submissions: Long Form Mentorship (Diaspora Dialogues)

“Diaspora Dialogues invites submissions from emerging writers who currently have a full or near-full draft of a manuscript. We accept novels, short story collections, creative non-fiction/memoir, works intended for young adults and poetry. Complete or near complete means that the writer has up to 85,000 words or 300 double-spaced pages of prose; or up to 25 poems (50 pages maximum). Submissions will consist only of excerpts from these works (see guidelines).

Diaspora Dialogues is committed to supporting a literature that is as diverse as Canada itself. Writers are encouraged to keep this mandate in mind, but addressing this theme directly is not essential in the submission.

Notifications will be made at the end of December. The mentorships will begin in January 2022 and run for six months. Assigned mentors are at the discretion of Diaspora Dialogues.

The deadline to apply is October 31, 2022.”
