In winter, I was chosen to participate in the AWP Mentor program and was assigned an amazing mentor, Paul Pedroza. It was a wonderful experience. I wrote about it here and encourage other writers to apply. Not only has Paul been a great resource and advocate for my work, but the AWP team (Diane, Brittany, everyone), as well as the other mentors and mentees that I had the privilege to meet were also really supportive and inspiring.
