“I honestly believe if I hadn’t found WriteMentor, I would have given up after receiving so many rejections. I would have continued to believe that I wasn’t good enough. I owe any successes so far to the team at WriteMentor and I will always support and love this place.”

Arden Jones, author and Hub member
