*Eye of the Tiger starts playing*

*30 incredible authors start shadow boxing as smoke billows around the library floor*

What on earth is going on, you ask?

We're warmed up and ready to help you get published, that's what!

Today isn't just a bog standard Monday people, oh no, it's a momentous day for The Riff Raff and for all of you guys dreaming about getting published in 2019 and beyond.

We're absolutely frickin' delighted to announce the launch of The Riff Raff Mentoring Scheme – a three month programme that pairs you with a sensational author and provides you with all the writing and publishing industry guidance you need to move to the next stage... aka pitching your wonderful idea to agents.

The array of hugely talented authors we’ve roped into our scheme is incredible. We have award-winners and nominees, best-sellers and all round decent, talented folk with insight (across all genres), humour and expertise to share with you.

You can check out our sublime list of mentors here, but below are just some of their gorgeous faces to whet-your-whistle.
