How We Uplift Writers (& How We Hope to Grow!)

Mentorship

Each summer, we invite 85 high school students from around the world to study poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction with established writers familiar with both literary craft and the literary industry. Students emerge from the program with long-lasting relationships with their mentors and peers, as well as a polished portfolio of their creative work. The program maintains an 8% acceptance rate, and maintains a 65% matriculation rate to Ivy League Schools, Stanford, and Oxbridge.

We hope to further development the mentorship arm of our organization by offering mentorship opportunities beyond the confines of the summer season. We also hope to offer more robust financial aid opportunities for this and future mentorship opportunities, so we can truly ensure that we are upholding our mission to invite those to the table who are not traditionally invited.

Programming

There’s nothing we love more than a good celebration of our exquisite and innovative contributors, mentorship students, and staff members. Whether we’re offering a platform for our writers to share exciting new work during a Zoom or in-person reading, or we’re inviting an established writing mentor onboard to share writing and publishing insights with students in our mentorship program, we’re always focused on creating and leveraging opportunities to bring writers and literary enthusiasts together. We’re excited to expand the breadth and frequency of programming we offer in the coming years.

Community

Offering opportunities for emerging writers and literary citizens to gain editorial experience or share their work has been at the core of how we grow. Since our inception in 2010, we have released more than forty issues of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, interviews, reviews, and art by more than 1,500 writers from around the world. How does it happen? More than one hundred passionate and knowledgeable volunteers offer their time and skills across editorial and operational realms.

We love seeing contributors and staff thrive both on and off the page, publishing in top-tier venues, receiving writing fellowships that catapult their careers, and finding homes at prestigious publishing houses. (It’s no wonder Aria Aber, Derrick Austin, Destiny O. Birdsong, Dorothy Chan, Leila Chatti, Kamden Hilliard, Kinsale Hueston, Aaron Robertson, Leslie Sainz, Anthony Veasna So, and more have graced Team Adroit, and why we have more inspiring contributors than we can count!)

While working on the Adroit team offers undeniably invaluable exposure to the literary industry, we aspire to pay all staff members and contributors by the end of 2023. That’s where your donation comes in!
