The New Canadian Media (NCM) mentoring program returns for another opportunity for writers to hone their skills with mentorship by a diverse array of established journalists. Participants will be matched with this year’s roster of mentors to create stories that will live on the NCM website. NCM’s mentorship program is the perfect opportunity for beginners and experienced writers alike.
Former mentee, Diary Marif, had this to say about the program:
“Two significant barriers for me writing for Canadian Media were language and Canadian Press style. My mentor, Fernando Arce, helped me a lot with restructuring paragraphs, grammar, researching for further information, and so on. Once my first piece was published, I was in seventh heaven.
NCM’s support encouraged me to keep writing. Over several months, I have published 11 articles. I am on the right track but I am not perfect. I need to work hard on how to write good pitches, how to write an active piece and so on, to be better. I work with this team as a family because I am comfortable and they encourage me to continue writing.”
