The CTC Mentorship Scheme

A U-turn won’t make up for the heartache, the knock in confidence, and the already lost university places. We are horrified by how the A-Level algorithm has disproportionately affected working class and BAME students, and are launching a mentorship scheme in response.

We will be offering a handful of year long mentorships for prospective Creative Writing students who have been adversely affected by the marking algorithm. Mentees will be paired with a Crested Tit Collective poet, who will offer monthly 1:1 writing workshops alongside support in reapplying to university if necessary. We will also be publishing a pamphlet of the writing produced during the scheme at the end of the 2021 academic year. Apply via:

We’re also immensely excited to be partnering with Broken Sleep Books and The Babel Tower Notice Board to be able to offer a publication opportunities as part of our mentorship program!

Mentorship FAQs:
– Can I still apply if I’m a joint honours student?

– If I got into uni, can I still apply?
Of course, the scheme is for people affected by the algorithm in all kinds of ways!

– What if I’m a mature student?
Please apply!

– Who will be my mentor?
You will be paired with a CTC poet. The CTC comprises of published writers who have studied to MA level (we have a couple of PhD candidates too!).

– Does it cost anything?
NO, it’s completely free!

– Can I send a question to the CTC if I have questions?
Absolutely, please do!
