you can read this article they did together about their relationship: https://cindytranwrites.wordpress.com/2020/08/30/an-open-letter-to-mentors-and-mentees/
"I had never had true "writing friends" before, so having a mentor to be there to listen and help with my writing struggles has given me the support system I always dreamed of having! My mentor and I now talk daily, and we are always there to support one another on our publishing journeys." -Cindy Tran, Journalism Mentee 2020
"The mentorship program was the highlight of my summer. I went from a mess of an outline and incomplete zero drafts to a clear idea and amazing outline in just one meeting with my mentor. I was guided through the process, brainstormed some crucial ideas & fleshed out my characters. It was truly such a wonderful experience! My mentor was, and still is, my inspiration. You develop such an important and motivational friendship. The support is unbelievable." -Dani Coronado, Fiction Mentee 2020
"Having a mentor like Annelyse Gelman, who is pushing the boundaries of poetry with poetry films and her Midst platform, was an insightful experience and helped me better envision the writer's life. In addition, her experience and personal feedback for my work allowed me to consider novel aspects of poetry which motivated me to experiment with a wealth of interesting techniques." -Richard Zhu, Poetry Mentee 2020

"I really think you would like this route because it gives more of that personal touch. You have one on one discussions of your work and get advice from great people. And these mentors are writers too so they are just as in love with writing as you!"
