SNAG is finally ready to embark on its mentoring program titled "The Road 2 Success" and the program is free for all SNAG members.
Enrollment is first-come, first-served.
Sign up begins September 16th at NOON.
The list of mentors covers a broad spectrum. To be sure, it will be interesting to see how this mentoring program develops.
"Writing a novel is like driving a car at night.
You can see only as far as your headlights,
but you can make the whole trip that way."

Teachers from an academic program are always so articulate it amazes me. They are accustomed to verbalizing the issues for their students.
Writers and workshop teachers spell out the problems and solutions in step by step process.
Production makers have a lot of experience in the turbulent ebb and flow of selling in the marketplace. The kind of experience you only get on the road of hard knocks.
One of a kind makers have a different focus all together.Their design decisions are based on finding and uniquely expressing an artistic voice.If you aren't a SNAG member already, make sure your membership is updated in the next five days or you may miss out on a great opportunity to work with this list of Mentors:
