YA4YA Mentoring Program

ya4ya-logo-no-back

The YA4YA platform is for writers of YA looking for free mentoring from industry professionals. This can range form query critiques, the first twenty-five pages, or an on-going mentorship until their manuscript is ready for submission. The actual critique is determined by the mentor participating. Check them out, along with their wish lists:

This mentorship doesn’t offer an agent round at the end, but what it does offer is help revising your manuscript without a deadline. The end result, of course, is hopefully polishing the writer’s manuscript so they DO get an agent. Submissions are October 1-15, 2019. And as always, good luck!
