What is Author Mentor Match?

Author Mentor Match pairs unagented, aspiring YA and MG writers with mentors to help them with their manuscripts and guide them through the publishing process.

AMM focuses on building lasting relationships. Mentors will help writers revise their manuscript before querying, give advice and tips on agents, and support through the process. 

Round 6 submissions will be open March 1-5, 2019. Mentees will be announced by the end of March.

Our Mentors

Every one of our mentors has gone through the process of revising their manuscript, researching agents, and done time in the query trenches. Our mentors are published, debuting, on submission or in revisions with their agents. We are excited to give back to the community and help you polish your manuscript, craft the perfect pitch/query, and take your writing career to the next level.

How It Works

Mentees can apply to up to four possible mentors, submitting general information about themselves and their book via a submission form, then emailing their query, 1-2 page synopsis, and first three chapters or first 50 pages (whichever is longer) to us. The mentors will consider all mentee submissions carefully, potentially asking for more pages, before selecting someone to work with.
