Manuscript Mentors

Partner with a distinguished mentor to perfect your manuscript. Your donation supports a new residency program for writers working in the spirit of James Baldwin.

We don’t have any products to show here right now.


Manuscript Mentors is a fundraising program to support the inaugural year of the Maison Baldwin Writer-in-Residence program. One hundred percent of proceeds will go toward program costs.

Unless otherwise noted, you will receive the following attention to your work from your Maison Baldwin mentor:

- A detailed letter of 3-5 pages in response to the manuscript, with analysis and ideas for revision;
- Generous margin comments and line editing;
- A one-hour follow-up conversation–by phone, Skype, or in person about the work, revisions, and suggestions for submitting the revised manuscript to the publishing world.

Each mentor will work with only one writer. Pairings are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
