Now updated for Round 2!

5

Mentees should be unagented authors with complete, polished YA (young adult) and MG (middle grade) manuscripts. All mentors write YA or MG and currently AMM is exclusively focusing on YA & MG manuscripts.

5

October 19-24, we will open to submissions. Mentees can choose up to four mentors to submit to.

5

Each mentor will provide, at minimum, 1 full manuscript review and 1 query pass, but many of our mentors will be able to offer more, including agent list cultivation, querying, navigating agent offers, submission and more.

E

Mentees will fill out an application (available in April), detailing their background, writing interests and aspirations, and which mentors they would like to submit to.

E

Then, mentees should submit a query, 1-2 page synopsis, & 3 chapters or 50 pages (whichever is longer) of their manuscript to the AMM email.

E

Incomplete applications will not be considered: you must both fill out the form AND email your query/pages.

5

Matches will be announced November 19, and from that point, the mentor/mentee pairs are free to establish the parameters of their relationship.

5

There is no time limit or rules; each mentor and mentee will determine the best steps to be taken with the manuscript, query process, etc.

5

There will be no agent round, or contest aspect. Mentors may share strong applications that aren’t a fit for them, but may fit another mentor.
