Who This Program Is For


Writers with a complete and revised (at least one full pass, no rough drafts here!) YA manuscript between 50k-120k words or MG manuscript between 25K-60K words.

Who also have a completed query letter draft to submit with their partial and synopsis

Someone currently unagented who has never been traditionally published, who has not queried an excessive number of agents for the manuscript they are submitting. Excessive = more than half the number of agents you can realistically query for your work.

Someone willing to take feedback and revise their manuscript

How To Apply

Round 6 submissions are now closed.

To apply:

  1. Fill out the submission form (after it becomes available)
  2. Submit your query package to the Author Mentor Match email

Mentors will choose their Round 6 mentees by the end of March, 2019. Each will contact their mentee and begin mentoring soon after.

The Author Mentor Match query package guidelines will be changing slightly. We will share more information on the new procedure closer to the R6 window opening. Watch this space!
