The Loft Literary Center

THE LOFT LITERARY CENTER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received $49,000 in support of the Mentor Series. Founded in 1974, The Loft Literary Center fosters a writing community, supports the artistic development of writers and builds an audience for literature. Since 1979, the Jerome Foundation has supported the Mentor Series, a vehicle for emerging Minnesota writers to work in a small group setting with nationally recognized writers, and to be mentored by those writers in ways ranging from review of their work to providing inspiration and examples for the writing life. Twelve emerging Minnesota-based writers (four in poetry, four in fiction and four in creative nonfiction) are selected to work intensively with six nationally acclaimed writers (two in each genre). The Series encompasses small groups and individual sessions, public readings, master classes and workshops.
