Applications for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 are now closed. We will open applications for Fall 2021 in August 2021.
We love working with new writers. That could be you!
We are seeking university/college students and/or recent alumni who are based in Canada and are interested in:
- taking their writing to the next level
- growing in their writing and self-editing skills
- receiving feedback from editors
- being invested in
- publishing an article on our Blog
We write because we want people to know, discover, and grow more in love with the person of Jesus Christ. We seek to tell others about him. As we do that, we share personal stories and experiences, and we relate gospel themes to real life—because Jesus is relevant to all of life.

Selected participants will be paired with an editor as they write throughout Fall 2020. The mentorship will involve connecting with this editor on a weekly basis (plus attending group calls with other participants twice over the semester), completing a variety of small writing assignments, and working on a longer piece of writing to be published on our blog.
Applications are open from Sept 2-11.
Interviews will be held Sept 14-18.
Mentorship begins Sept 21 and ends Dec 7, 2020.
Time commitment of approx. 1-2 hours per week. Includes a weekly video call with your coach plus time for writing.
We can only offer video call interviews to some applicants.
Approx. 6 spots are open.
We prefer that you reside in Canada, but due to COVID travel restrictions, we are willing to consider those who are living elsewhere this semester.
Before you apply please read our Publication Guidelines.
If you are not available or interested in the Writing Mentorship program but would still like to write or submit a piece of writing, you can apply on our Write For Us page.
We are so excited to work and collaborate with you! We look forward to reading your application.
“I was able to delve deeper into my experiences to seek out how God was working in my life and how to communicate that in a way that glorified Him to others.”
“I got to spend more time reading my Bible and understand the context of Bible verses more. This allowed me to connect with God more.”
“Oh my gosh, I felt [God] guide me and heal me in ways I hadn’t healed before. My article is very honest and vulnerable, so to write it to bring glory to him but also grow and understand myself better has been beautiful. It also confirms that writing is something he wants me to do a lot more of!”
“Thinking about how I communicate drives me deep into myself; into the big things God has done in my life, and seeking ways to communicate such amazing experiences.”
“I enjoyed how my editor was able to pare down my words and make sense of my ideas when I spoke about it.”
“My mentor gave me different things to think about when writing that I don’t normally think about – like how to make sharing a story accessible to anyone and everyone. Especially considering the article I wrote.”
