We are a community of creative independent women committed to visual storytelling. Work with us.
It is through the collaborative work of motivated individuals that we grow and sharpen our craft.
We offer mentorship opportunities with our members. Mentorships with defined goals will increase your success as a professional and a storyteller. We can assist you in editing and organizing your work, finding publishers for ongoing projects, brainstorming new ideas, crafting pitches for clients, preparing you and your work for portfolio reviews, improving your business practices and defining the appropriate audience of your work. We will tailor the mentorship experience to meet your goals.
The application process begins when you contact one of our team members, listed below, by email, send them a link to your work and state your goals for the mentorship. The mentorship begins with a one-hour portfolio review and consultation. During that meeting, you and your mentor will determine together the best strategy for moving forward to accomplish your goals. This may include a longer-term relationship with additional meetings of various lengths.
Please choose your mentor below and contact them directly. Fees for an initial consultation begin at $100 per hour. We offer discounted mentoring for students.
