2021 WriteMentor Summer Programme: Showcase

Below is listed the 2021 Showcase entries from our Summer Mentoring Programme. We have divided entries by age category to help navigate and listed additional details both on this page and the individual entry pages.

Simply click on the TITLE of the manuscript that you wish to read and it will take you to each entry’s page.

Agents, please note the the number of an entry you wish you to request for the form that you will complete. These are listed both below, on the individual entry page and on the form, alongside the title.

It is our great pleasure to present to you (and everyone!) the class of 2021!
