You should be agented or published, or have a book deal. This program is for writers pursuing traditional publishing, thus our mentors must be familiar with that process.
Round 5 submissions will be open in mid-October, with mentorship beginning in early November. The bulk of editorial work will take place in November/December and into the New Year. (it is OK if you cannot get your mentee an edit letter immediately, as long as you set those expectations with them.)
Please fill this out by July 22. We will select new mentors by early August.
