The Loft Literary Center
Loft Mentor Series

THE LOFT LITERARY CENTER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $104,000 in support of the Mentor Series.  The Loft’s mission is to support the artistic development of writers, foster a writing community, and build an audience for literature.  As an intergenerational, multicultural literary arts center, The Loft operates as an artist service organization, a gathering place for writers and readers, a community school for the arts, and a presenting organization.  It is an incubator for the creative writing process, nurturing novelists, poets, spoken word artists, and writers in every genre and style, and connecting them to readers and live audiences.  The Mentor Series offers 12 emerging Minnesota writers in poetry and creative prose the opportunity for year-long intensive study with six nationally acclaimed writers of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction.  Included in the program are craft seminars, intensive genre-specific workshops, individual manuscript conferences, seminars, craft talks, one-on-one manuscript consultations, and public readings.
