Cheers to our 3 Year Anniversary!
Can you believe it’s been almost 3 years since AMM began? It’s both so long ago, and not long at all. Up until now, to meet incredible writing community demand (and talent), we’ve hosted two rounds a year. Unfortunately, due to some tragic personal circumstances, that became unsustainable in 2019. Alexa would like to convey her extreme thank you to every single member of the AMM community for being understanding and supportive with the passing of her mother this summer.
Celebrating AMM Success Stories!
The aim of AMM is to help aspiring writers in the long term to find quality representation, and get great book deals with Big 5, major, and respected small presses. We are so proud to share our myriad success stories which reflect this goal! We have so many amazing books in bookstores or headed there soon, and mentees working hard with incredible agents to get their books on submission. And many more successes are in the works, trust us.
Check out our updated Success Stories.
AMM Goes Annual
To this end, starting with Round 7 in February 2020, AMM will be an annual event, happening every early Spring. We hope this change will help the writer community better make plans, on both the mentor and mentee side! It will also help save the AMM mod team from burnout. We love you guys, but making the program as good as we want it to be takes a lot of work!
Calling all Adult Genre writers!
After much demand, AMM is expanding to include select adult genres! It’s been our position for years that we could not in good conscience expand to include adult until we could trust that we could source top quality adult mentors to guide potential mentees. We are pleased to announce that we are now in that position for select adult genres!
To that end, we are opening up our mentor application for adult mentors and anticipate including at least 4-5 mentors who will accept genres including romance, thriller, and sci-fi.
Mentor Applications Open
Round 7 Mentor applications are currently open! If you are an agented and/or published author of YA, MG or adult who has availability starting in February 2020 to mentor a writer, we encourage you to apply!
