Will there be another round of AMM…?
… in short, YES! We are planning on continuing Author Mentor Match as a mentoring program in subsequent rounds. Round one was incredibly successful, and we made some great matches. But now we have a sense of how much “demand” there is (a lot!) and how many more mentors–and variety of mentors–we need to make some more great matches.
Currently, the plan is to hold the next round of applications and matching in late Spring, so start readying those manuscripts! We’ll be adding new mentors for YA as well as Middle Grade, which we’ll be expanding to cover. Whether we’ll be tackling additional genres is still TBD.
If you are an agented or published (or to-be-published) author interested in mentoring, we will be opening up applications for new/additional mentors. We may have limited spaces, depending on how many of our round one mentors are able to return, but are very much looking forward to finding some amazing new mentors to join our team! Look for our call for mentors sometime in February.
Let us know if you have any questions in the comments, and we will try to answer!
