Author Mentor Match is Open for Subs

Author Mentor Match is open for submissions. This event matches aspiring writers with agented authors to hone their completed manuscripts. There is no agent round or contest aspect, but a focus on building lasting relationships. Mentors will help writers revise their manuscript before querying, give advice and tips on agents, and support through the process.

This is a big deal in the writerly world because paying for editing can be extremely expensive! At first glance, the website seems like it may only be for young adult stories, but upon further reading it is clearly for YA & MG. If you’re interested in submitting, go check out the mentors involved (and get a load of their books) . Be sure to view the guidelines and submit before 11:59pm PT on April 23, 2017.

As Always, good luck!

@WriteOnCon #Conference Is Coming!

WriteOnCon

WriteOnCon is “A writing conference you don’t even have to wear pants to. (Please wear pants, though.)” This isn’t just an opportunity to attend a writing workshop, but it’ll be the cheapest and closet conference you’ve ever attend (aside of being free, of course). Seriously, you can participate from your home! And while you might have missed the raffles and perks to buy, there is still time to sign up to join. Admission is either $5 (General Admission), $10 (General + Live Events), or $15 (General + Live Events + Extended Access). You can’t wrong with any choice!

WriteOnCon is an online conference for kidlit writers and illustrators. Connect with writers, authors, and agents in this event. There will even be Ninja Agents & Editors and live pitch sessions (check the schedule for all 3 days)! But hurry to get registered because it’ll take place Thursday-Saturday, February 2nd-4th, 2017.

As always, good luck!

Spencer Hill Press Open Submissions

th

Hold the presses! Writers are getting messages that Spencer Hill Press isn’t taking submissions due to new management, despite what their website says. I’ve sent an email and hopefully I’ll back soon soon with confirmation and/or new dates when they’ll start taking submissions again. I’ll keep you posted!

The clock is ticking folks! Spencer Hill Press is taking open submissions for middle grade, young adult, and new adult for sci-fi, paranormal, or urban fantasy. For those unfamiliar with the policy for Spencer Hill Press, this is HUGE because this publishing company doesn’t normally take submissions from writers that aren’t represented by a literary agent. (Please note, if you have an agent you can still submit through normal channels.)

So, if you write in one of these categories/genres and your manuscript is FINISHED and POLISHED, submit by December 10th for a chance to be published by a very reputable publishing company.  I repeat, this is a small window of opportunity, so get your submissions in by December 10th, 2015. For all the important details go here.

As always, good luck!
