Here’s what Rounds 1 & 2 Mentees have to say about their AMM experience:



Author Mentor Match has completely changed my life for the better. In less than a year, it has improved my writing beyond words, taught me how to meet personal deadlines, and helped me revise quickly and efficiently… But perhaps the best part of all, it helped me create an amazing, lasting relationship with my mentor.

Winter 2016 Mentee, Mentor: Kayla Olson

My mentor was absolutely amazing in helping me transform and polish my manuscript. But aside from craft, I’ve gained so many new friends from this experience, which is priceless to me. The mentors and mentees I’ve met have truly become my #AMMFamily and I’m so fortunate to be a part [of it].

I can’t believe how lucky I am to be a part of the AMM community. Mine and all the mentors, my fellow mentees—we all work together to help each other reach our goals. And to have that for the length of a career? That’s incredible.
