Our groundbreaking Mentorships Programme gives talented graduates from First Story programmes the opportunity to be mentored for one year by experienced, acclaimed writers from our Academy.

The 2022 Rathbones Folio mentees, their mentors, family and friends gathered at the London Library on a muggy July evening to celebrate and hear some extraordinary new writing. Lauren Betts, Tegan Blake-Barnard, Emily Freeman, Lauren Robertson, Cheyenne Taylor-Guest and Calum Wood are all names to watch!
