Author Mentor Matchup was created by Heather Kaczynski and Alexa Donne. The object is to match new writers with authors further along in the publishing process and gain invaluable mentoring! That’s right, this is an opportunity to get your manuscript critiqued (for free) before submitting to agents!
Authors can select up to four mentors during the submission window between October 19. 2017 through October 24, 2017. Be sure to check the mentor BIOS to learn what age groups and genres they wish to see in their inbox!
Please note there is a two-step process for entering:
- Fill out the submission form. (I believe the form will appear during the sub window period.)
- Email the proper information to email@example.com:
- A query (pasted in the body of the email!)
- The first 50 pages/3 chapters of your novel (whichever is longer & can be attached)
- A synopsis
Be sure to include in the subject line the manuscripts Age Category +Genre + Title. (ie: YA Sci-Fi – Mars Plants are the Bomb) on the email submission. And check out the site in order to know how to select the mentors you wish to submit to because it isn’t clear quite yet. (I’m guessing this might be part of the submission form.) As always, good luck!
